Looks awesome. I'm considering this mod just for the convenience of being able to lift the wiper arms whenever I need to. If you reckon your X is dirty, then I would be embarrassed to post a pic of mine for sure!

Well done! Did you upgrade the rear wiper too? You can use either E70, X3 or the Volvo CX90 wiper. Here's a thread on rear wiper upgrade.

Thanks guys! Yes honestly just being able to lift them without making them vertical is really 90% of why I did this mod!

^^X5only, here is an old pic from 2 years ago (wow my old Ractive tips were cheesy), yes I did "upgrade" the rear wiper but it was a deletion upgrade. I keep my glass clayed and sealed, haven't missed it one bit in over 2 years.

^Still loving the E70 front wipers (my rear is deleted completely with a plug) - I clean the blades each time I was my X5 and they are still going strong as well and not nearly due for replacement yet
