Love the viper delete, no rattling noises anymore. Maybe you could combine the viper and the gourmet and make a meal out of it?

I guess you would rather make fun of a spelling mistake and act childish rather than giving some actually advise :

Makes the back end look a lot better. Also I don't really even use my rear viper

Might want to consider the IND gloss black painted wipers instead? Probably will blend in better and you never know when you may need to use the wiper...

https://ind-distribution.com/product...ap-gloss-black

Unless you're referring to the pesky V10 car attached behind for providing additional on demand boost. Makes parallel parking and refueling a real pain.

Deleting the wiper doesn’t throw a code if you mistakenly hit the stalk?

IMHO the delete looks worse with that plug. Why do you have a random plug in a piece of glass? I think you would need a new rear glass without the hole to make it look proper.

Each to their own I guess

I think the gloss painted one is nicer than the delete.

That's pretty cool. I'm just afraid of anything that's billet aluminum getting near glass.

So there's a nice round hole in the glass that lets bugs & water get in... ?

I see they have one for the F25 X3. So wondering if the G01 X3 cutout will be the exact same size...

take yours off, measure the hole and give them a bell?
(a wee bit of Duct tape over the hole would do till the send you one out)
