Recommended Wipers

If you're in the market for some new front wipers try these:

Bosch AM246S Aerotwin pack - for 26" and 15" blades.  I've just got some and the difference compared to the cheap tat that I had on is incredible.

A quick search will get you a set at around £20+ where as Halfrauds will set you back £35.

Yet to test them in heavy rain and I can't say what the longevity of them is like but time will tell.

Are these the ones where you can change the rubbers when they get worn?

I've been using Bosch since I got my car. Change them every two years. Not sure if the rubbers can be changed - never thought about it or tried. Have been happy with them on the front side. Rear window not so much. Several missed spots unless really wet.

Just fitted a set to my Peugeot minibus. Got them from parts direct, 26, and 22 inch, excellent as good as the originals if not better, £29 for pair so not cheap but needed them quickly. Normally get them via eBay at half that price. But generally you get what you pay for cheap wipers are just that, cheap but not necessarily good.

Yep,always used to use Bosch but found them expensive and noisy,had to replace them every year,now use super cheap which last 2 x years and im not paying for that silly wing that they put on the Bosch,my car doesn't go fast enough to make any difference anyway,i get mine from Europarts but i think i'll be trying Ace parts this year,Exact-spec look good.Thanks peteh80.

Well I`ve had my car 4 years now and try to change them each year- usually just before or after winter as all the crap does tend to ruin the blades faster....My service lights just come on today- best get one of those £51 service kits ordered too! lol
