That was interesting. Did anyone notice the Rinspeed cars have a single large windshield wiper instead of the two blades on ours?

I believe that only the wider North American i-MiEV's have 2 windshield wipers.

There's already one supplier in Germany offering lowering springs, but they didn't respond to my email. Now I see one in the UK, at a hair under $200/set (before shipping)

Thanks for that link. :) I would venture a guess that because the Euro versions of the car are narrower, [and hence lighter] that these springs may lower the wider NA market car even more than intended.
