Re: Lay flat rear wiper... how? (Dutchman)
Well I'm no expert on aerodynamics, but wind resistance isn't lowered by just having an aerodynamic front end, because the air fills the area immediately behind the car after the car has passed, so basically you have to make your car's rear reasonably smooth, and VW found that by parking the wiper at an angle, the air passed over the car easier!!
And the Golf II isn't a brick, it's drag coefficient is .32, the sdame as an Audi TT!!!
