Windscreen

  MK2 FRS


Have just changed my dynamique for an extreme. They are the same model except my dynamique didnt have the rain sensitive wiper and automatic headlamps. However the windscreen is different on my extreme. At the bottom of windscreen there is a rectangle which seems to be in between the two layers of the glass. It is tinted a different colour as well. Any body have a dynamique or extreme with this on??? What is it for???

Its for sticking tickets on i think!!! like car park tickets so they dont damage the protective film

but i could be talking absolute rubbish of course

I was quite unsure about the combination of the extreme and platinum but I really like. Theres a few around here. My mate gets his tomorrow in the cyclone blue. Cant believe how easily the seats get dirty!!! Its an interesting theory. As long as it is meant to be there im not too bothered. I just wondered whether someone had put at the bottom instead of the top!! As it seems to be directly inline with the senor at the top of the screen!!
 


This sounds like the same patch that you get on 172s.

What (I think) it is for is the ticket that gets read for the toll roads in france. It is also the only place the radar detectors and GPS antennas will work, as the rest of the screen is sound deadened and UV reflective.

So, it can be a very useful patch indeed
 


The rain and auto wiper sensor is at the top in the middle of the screen. I have the clear rectangle at the bottom in the middle, not sure why it there though! Where does the optional sat nav aerial fit - could it be something to do with that?

What would happen if tickets/passes were stuck elsewhere on the windscreen? Particularly if traffic wardens and others arent aware of this patch.

What is an Extreme like?
 


James - The Sat Nav antenna is an extra bit to the normal radio atenna on the back, Mine has a flat plastic piece at the front, and that is the antenna.

When the manual is talking about tickets/passes its talking about ones which can be electronically read from outside the vehicle - like the token cards that are used on the continent for toll roads.

So it wont affect any traffic wardens (But wouldnt it be cool if sticking your ticket outside of the patch made it look valid all the time Oh well, I can dream..... and theyll keep on fining me )
