    Re: Wiper blades

    Nothing special. You just have to find ones with the right fitting. I've used Porsche, Bosch (I think they make them for Porsche) and currently using PIAA.

    That's normal. The middle LED's are actually the rear fog light (and they're not white). Turn your headlight switch to manual on and pull to turn it on.
