I have them, but apparently they have never worked and I can't seem to get them to do anything. My normal windshield spray works fine.

Randman was just over and I saw them on his car. The whole time I'm thinking...if he only looks the other way...I'll have those cool things on my car. Hey Randy...look at that pinball machine over there....

You're always trying to direct my attention away from certain things.

Actually if I had the choice, I would opt to omit those little buggers.
1) Never really use 'em
2) Bumper has cleaner line without 'em
3) More room in the engine compartment for a CAI with the single reservoir.

yah headlight washers are a cool thing to have ive used them a couple of times in the winter but other than that never get to use them cuz i keep my car clean most of the time anyways. the tank is huge tho it takes a ton of fluid to fill that thing up thats for sure.

i have them too on my 92ssei....i was all excited at first....then thought: "i'm never gonna use these...." lol i would say they're practically useless for the spring/summer/fall seasons unless u take ur car and do some serious mud play....other than that they may be helpful in winter to help get the snow off of ur headlights in a nice lil' blizzard...

*edit*: i remember first trying to use them....manual said push for the windshield spray and pull for the headlight spray....but it never said which direction....so i pushed for the windshield spray {like u would on any other car} and then acutally tried pulling the lever outward {towards the door} and wondered why it wouldn't move....finally common sense came into play and i felt so retarded when i figured out that all i had to do was pull it towards me.....
