On the subject of wiper blades. Why does the W107 and Porsche 911s, have wipers that wipe from the left to the right. Like someone mentioned, the wiper sys. on the W116 leaves alot to be desired. I don't quite understand why they have a flopping action to them. It leaves a large area at the bottom left side of the windshield uncleared. I thought I had read somewhere that the way the wipers lay on top of each other is for aerodynamics.
