The Satis jets are on the underside of the rear lip on the bonnet (if that makes sense). I don't use any special washer fluid, just standard concentrate available from Halfrauds. I do however use Autoglym quick glass cleaner on the screen every 6 months on so. You will need to do it 3 or 4 times initially to get the screen clear of all the built up crud but after that its a 5 minute job occasionally. Use a good quality microfibre cloth to buff it up and you'll find very little will stick to the screen. You could try Rain-X, i personally found it was too labour intensive for my liking and needed re-applying more often than i could be bothered.

Also run the damp microfibre cloth up and down the rubber blade a couple of times after finishing the screen, it prolongs blade life and prevents particles being dragged across the screen causing smearing.
