Also in the Middle East. Don't know why though...not a lot of snow here. They just mess up the hood when it is covered in dust. Creates a nice muddy mess

I would've ordered headlight washers as an option for my WK if it was available in North America.

That video is old it hit the internet sometime last fall. It is a euro model....I secretly wish we had the headlight washers though, but I am happy we do not have the turn signals on the fenders.
