    Default VX Flat blade wiper

    Just bought some flat blades from VX tradeClub and on the driver's side one it's got this extra clip fitted (arrowed in photo) which typically!! I've not seen on any others, anyone else got this on theirs at all, not sure if it's to add extra weight to stop it lifting at certain speeds or what.
    Cheers Pete

    I don't know what that is to be honest but they look like re branded Valeo's.
    How much are VX selling those for if you dont mind me asking.

    Im using wiperblades.co.uk own brand and they look identical to the Valeo's and only cost about £14 delivered next day.
    I have used Bosch and Valeo lay flats and to be honest they are good but no better than what im using now just far more expensive.

    Yeah, I didn't think it was too bad either considering Vx wanted £20 (£13 Tradeclub) for the standard type blades.
