Is that even possible in Canada. On the online build your own site, it says its a standard option and cannot be deselected.

In some countries, headlight washers are mandatory if you have xenon headlights.

Just ruins the clean look of the car!

They have come in handy on occasion on my E46 m3. Although I JUST encountered the washers the other day in my e92 and those things are out of control. Shot fluid all over the hood lol.. Guess I'll make sure my headlights are off next time.

Removed mine when I installed the Vorsteiner GTS3 front fender. Got rid of washers and hoses and removed a fuse behind the glove compartment. Washers on the windscreen still works fine
