    Got mine off ebay, I think i paid about £20 for the pair,
    Have no real complaints about them other than the passenger side one has only light contact with the windscreen on the outer edge(about 1-2 inches)

    Had Vx flat blades fitted for about a year. They work much better than the std blades they replaced & no problems to date. About £20 from LMF IIRC

    Had them on my old car and didn't notice any difference so much so that I left them on the car when it went.

    A few people have had problems with them squeaking but never had this issue. I've always used Rain X on the windscreen after cleaning so maybe this accounts for both the lack of noticeable performance and the squeak.
