If you Google 'Boxster screen wash', this post is the first result :-)

Seriously though, you need the stuff a couple of times a year and it costs 1/10 of a full tank of petrol? go to an OPC and ask for some. Grab a coke while you're at it :-)

I have half a dozen of those each with the first dose squeezed out of them.

I used to think it was very kind of the OPC to give me a nice litre bottle of Mobil 1 in a presentation case too... until I read the invoice properly.

I think even if you brim your washer bottle before dropping it off they'll still manage to stiff you for a bottle as they'll have made room for a dose by testing the washers rolleyes

As for Mobil 1, I was infuriated to find that despite there being a not very old, unopened bottle in there from the last service they STILL put a new one in. I think if a 25,000 mile GT2 were to ever need TWO emergency litres of oil there'd be something to worry about!

The shipping cost is £10.79 and it appears that the going rate for a bottle of this is between £7-£9, the non-Porsche branded DR.OK is actually more expensive than the non-Porsche stuff, I assume this is why the colour is different, Porsche owners get it at a cheaper cost.

I got supplied this today for £7.62 and was interested to see the DR.OK.WACK label on the back:

In that case, I should feel like I've had a bargain!

But alas, no.....in two years I've never had to top the washer bottle up and don't envisage having to do it anytime soon.

Is there a different screenwash for Turbos versus GT3s?

Yep! Turbos use left and right jets where as GT3 only the right. Apparently the Turbo wash is slightly quicker but the GT3 stuff is way more fun to spray!
