    Default Which wipers to buy?

    Hi all,

    i have a 2008 vectra and it needs 2 new wipers on the front.

    - Do you know the size of the wiper blades that i need?
    - Also would you suggest sticking with the conventional wiper or upgrading to the new style all in one wiper thats on the Insignia?
    - Any suggestions where to get them from for best deal and quality?

    thanks

    I think its a 21" and 19" I would go for the aero wipers personally. You could try http://www.wiperblades.co.uk/ its where I always get my blades from.

    What ever you do dont buy VX ones, well not if the are made by Valeo, they are terrible. Judder, squeak, missed bit and that was before the winter kicked in, they were even worse as the cold kicked home. Back using my old Tesco Flat blades, cant fault them.

    As above. Think they were about £23 with free delivery. Have a look in the styling section for some pics I put up.

    I've used the flat blades that the dealers supply for donkeys years now (replaced every so often, not the same set for 7 years lol), can't fault them at all.
