    Question Flat Blade Wipers

    I've read about Flat Blade Wipers...

    " Flatblades A breakthrough in windscreen wiper products from Vauxhall."

    ...I doubt these are on my 53 plate, and there isn't really a problem with the ones I have but....what's it all about then? wipers are wipers aren't they?

    been thinking about getting some of these myself. there are one or two on here who have them and say that they are brilliant so i think they could be worth giving a go.

    Interesting you should raise that point, I took a friend and her children to Manchester Airport lastnight from Leeds, at around 4.30.. over the top near Saddleworth the heavens opened, with all the spray and black clouds it was like a wall of water, the normal wipers on my 53 plate handled it all a treat, no complaints at all!

    I'll be going back to the standard blades next time. Flat ones are OK but not worth paying any extra IMO.
