    Just picked up my new Vectra and it has the old style wipers on the front but a new style one on the back! How come, if vauxhall are selling the flatblades for Vectras, they don't fit them on brand new ones in the first place? (Like they do with Astras)

    New car, as in brand new car? I'm sure they came with flat blades from the factory.

    I reckon your dealer has whipped them off and put a set of the older style on yours!!

    Well as before I reckon somebody at the dealer has whipped them off for themselves and put a set of the older style on yours!! I think a little trip to the dealer may be due!

    Can somebody just confirm that they do come with flat blades from new (I'm positive they do) and I don't end up causing rusty to make a fool of himself!!

    Mine came with the conventional wiper blades, but a flat blade on the back.

    Despite the plate, mine's an 07 Vectrta and didn't come with Flatblades on the front. It's got them now though.
    Why would Vauxhall put them on when they can get another £23.00 off you for the aftermarket jobbies.
    Can't see the dealers knicking them, get into too much trouble if the punters found out.
