    Default Wiper Blades

    Quite a sad subject I know. My wiper blades are shot and I need some new ones. Saw some Bosch ones on e-bay for £15.00/pair. Just wondering what brands members have found to be the best.

    (The things you ask on this site )

    I haven't changed mine yet... still using the ones that came with the car from new
    I'm holding out to see wether the facelift will have the blade type or not - because if they do I will be enquiring to see if they will fit on my exisiting wiper arms

    I've tried Halfords ones in the past - load of c**p. I've stuck with the Vx ones ever since and been happy with them. I'm sure they're about the same price as the Bosch ones you've mentioned (and I have a feeling that the Vx ones are rebadged Bosch anyway?)

    Edit: Just dug out an old invoice. £19 for a pair of Vx ones. I don't know if there is P&P to add to your e-bay ones?

    go careful though... i snapped my rear blade from its arm while washing the car a month ago. Went and bought a new bosch blade from halfords but the fitting was totally different. Had to buy orginal vauxhall.

    Dont know if the fronts are the same or not.

    dont the front blades have wiper spoilers meaning you need vaux ones.

    had genuine vaux, valeo, bosch, mafco, every wiper brand on my astra, they were all good except the mafco ones, which were also the cheapest.

    they all lasted me approx 4 years except the mafco ones.

    I found the vx ones were roughly the same price as Bosch when I had a vec b. Vx ones are good as well. Not changed them on my C yet, I've noticed they are starting to be a bit streaky though.

    You can clean them with glass cleaner & it brings them back like new for a while.
