    I have also, used Bosch when I have had to change mine.

    I got over 80k with my last pair, with just the beginning of streaking.

    Have just fitted Valeo Silencio X.TRM flatblades. They're a huge improvement over the Bosch's I had previously.

    I had the GM valeo ones on for about 12 months and had nothing but problems with them smearing and steaking from new. Now I have the bosch aero twins and they'e fine...lower profile too.

    i must admit the valeo ones do need cleaning, as mine do streak abit, had them as standard on the 888 and they were fine, dont know if its because the veccy ones are bigger
