Is it just my 105, or are the front wipers just crap? and whose idea was it to have 4 wipes, a 5 second gap, then an infernal extra wipe on a simple quick spray? After 10 months its finally driven me nuts. (it's not a wear and tear thing, they have been pretty shite since I bought it.)

Has any body got any advice on:
1. New wiper blades and arms
2. Reprogramming the auto wipe thing down to like 2 wipes?

Mine were wank before and i thought about changing em, but new blades seems to have done the trick!

105+ mark 1, something else I have noticed as well, and this has also been the case since day 1, if driving as speed with wipers on full, the right hand wiper smacks the right hand pillar \ seal, it doesn't do any damage, but makes a bloody nasty noise.

I tried adjusting it cause i figured that it was just offset, but then it just tends to hit the bottom instead.

I think I am gonna contact my dealer \ MG directly to see if they are reprogrammable, interestingly, the wiper program is listed on the 2 page list of parts & specs that was stapled to my finance agreement. If its listed as programmed, you'd expect to be able to re-program it.
