So you want to remove it or add it to a car which does not have ZCW?

Wanting to remove it as all the cars that are available for sale that I'm seeing has this installed. Wanting to get rid of those hideous headlight washers.

Lot of work to get rid of something so insignificant. Just get a euro bumper while you're at it with no PDC, no reflectors and no nozzle bumps either.

Most likely to get rid of the fucking dimples.

Apologies for the profanity, but they look terrible.

When I ordered my 12' E92 M3, I left out the CWP on purpose because I couldn't stand the Headlight Washers.


What stinks is that the upcoming F80/F82 M3/M4 will have the ZEC - Executive Package of:

248 - Heated Steering Wheel
322 - Comfort Access
3AG - Rearview Camera
508 - PDC
610 - HUD
655 - Sat Radio
LK/X3 - Merino Leather/Extended Merino

and...

502 - Headlight Washers

Booooooo

It's unicorn tears that come out of the headlight washers.

I prefer the bumper without headlight washers but I find the reflectors (even when painted) to be far more offensive.

How people even notice something so small is unreal to me... but the way it sprays out so aggressively and the fact you can't turn it OFF & ON is annoying. Some times it sprays, some times it doesn't... WTF.

+1 on euro bumper and coding... just call IND.

Good excuse to get a Euro bumper. Solves the headlight warts and painted reflector issues. Most people & dealers didn't realize that you can get no warts if you just order heated seats and split down rear a la carte.

Exactly what I did when I ordered.
ZCW = no thanks
Heated seats = yes please
I remembered the annoyance in my E39 of the washers coming on every fifth time when I engaged the windshield wipers with headlights on. It was sporadic and made a mess not to mention the potential for leaks in all that plumbing .

I thought if your headlights were on auto, it sprays the headlights, if your headlights are switched to manually off, it doesnt.

Its cheaper to mold no? A euro bumper is $2k wasted.

I wonder if you could plumb the hose to shoot at something else. Brakes? Out the side?

I guess I need to stare at my car some more to discover how terrible these things look....

I love my headlight washers. Actually I don't notice them. Prob because I rarely use my windshield washers since it's a PIA to keep a black car clean.
