    I was low on wiper fluid. Used my normal orange rain-x stuff.

    Noticed that it's left spots on my paint. I can wash them off, but I don't think the factory fluid left any spots.

    Anyone know the factory or sc stuff?

    All I can tell you is that it is blue.

    Lol. Yes I plan to ask Saturday at the SC. But thought someone out there might know what they use.

    Just as a note, that the fluid that tesla uses froze up at the nozzle on me some during the winter here in Chicago. The cold weather package nozzle heater really did help.

    The best fluid I ever had was the factory fill in our German made BMW. It was clear! Apparently US laws require that it be tinted blue so it's not mistaken for water and someone tries to drink it.

    Yup.

    I've used this and this before. They work well. I've also heard of people using ONR (diluted to their quick detail ratios) or other quick detailers for wiper fluid. All mixed with distilled water.
