I deleted the rear wiper on my 350z, and sure as hell wouldn't want one on the 370z (if i decide to get one).

Judging from the pictures I've seen, it doesn't look like we're getting one. *fingers crossed*

I use my 350's wiper all the time. I wish we'd have one, but the USDM is not getting said piece.

From all the pics I've seen, there's no wiper.

You really should do a bit of research. This has been discussed MANY times.

1. It's not a brake light. It's a fog light.
2. The US won't get it. It's a required piece of equipment in other parts of the world.
3. Yes, Nissan was too lazy to work it out of the US design. We're stuck with it until body kits start coming out.

I hope it doesnt have it on the US version.
It looks a lot cleaner without.

Agreed. I do use it all the time but I don't think the US version will get it though.

Louisiana & no wiper is *almost* as bad.

You're a smart guy. Design a rear wiper for the car.

I use it on my 300zx and I've only had the car for a few months... First time I've ever had one and I'm glad I do. When it gets cold in Los Angeles, NO window is safe from the morning due.

It's been raining her over the past few days, and man that thing is great. I hope they have it on US spec cars. It's easy to remove it from any car, but it's not easy to add one!

+1 for a rear wiper blade.
