Default Windshield nozzle "jet" Sprayer vs "mist"



So im not sure if i'm alone here, but im starting to grow tired of the 3 jet spray. The jets are not aligned and overspray all the way till the rear window leaving the windshield with poor coverage. Plus the overspray gets all over the sunroof and side windows.<br />After digging online, i found that others have the same issue with their Audi's and are opting to replace them with OEM mist (fan) spray which even comes with the optional heating and made by VW.<br /><br />Anyone else try this? here's a video of the replacement instructions and new nozzles:<br /><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sB3woOd6wyA">https://youtu.be/sB3woOd6wyA?t=5m38s</a><br /><br />Looking to source these if anyone has any recommendations.

Apparently car mfg went with jet vs mist because at speed the aerodynamics of the newer cars means the fluid doesn’t reach top of the screen

Try the swap and let us know but pls test at highway speed
