We propose a time stepping scheme for the space-time systems obtained from Galerkin time-domain boundary element methods for the wave equation. Based on extrapolation, the method proves stable, becomes exact for increasing degrees of freedom and can be used either as a preconditioner, or as an efficient standalone solver for scattering problems with smooth solutions. It also significantly reduces the number of GMRES iterations for screen problems, with less regularity, and we explore its limitations for enriched methods based on non-polynomial approximation spaces.
