    Default VX Flatblades

    When I bought the car in Feb 07 the first thing I did was change to flat blades as I have had them on previous cars and they are great!!

    It's now the end of may and the blades are beginning to make lots of noise and are leaving lines all ove the screen. When they were new they were brilliant - they have lasted 4 months - that can't be right surely!!

    Going with Bosch Aerotwin next on GM!!

    To be honest, mine haven't lasted at all well, mainly due to a couple of poor repairs to the screen have ripped the blades to pieces.

    The flat blades are bosch too? I think almost all Vauxhall's blades are Bosch, just different models. My flats are still going strong and they look better than the others too, so I think I'll renew... check that, I'll put some on my new car

    The retro fit ones from VX are badged GM but are also badged Valeo. Valeo are good but you can't beat a bit of bosch!

    Well in that case, I'll be sticking wil Valeo. I put Bosch wipers on before these flat one and they sucked. Didn't last long and didn't fit very well (scratched the arm to get them on!).
