    Default Wiper Blades

    At two and a half years old my front wipers are starting to smear so it's time to replace methinks. I notice that they're both quite substantial items with spoilers on both driver and passenger side.

    Are replacement wipers from Vauxhall dealers identical ie with spoilers on each and how much do they charge roughly? Would I just be better getting some Bosch from Halfords instead?

    Thanks

    I think I've seen it said on the forum that the Vauxhall ones are a very good price, especially compared to Bosch or Halfrauds own...........

    Looking at the ebay example above do the Vauxhall replacements not have a spoiler for the passenger blade? Incidentally, at £19.24 incl P&P not exactly an ebay bargain is it.

    Nope.. Spoiler is only on the drivers side on our cars..and the blades are a different size..the drivers side is longer.

    Just one of the occasions where fleabay isn't the best place to purchase..

    Bish bosch, loadsa dosh. But worth the extra. Bosch blades are the dog's danglies IMO much better than the standard VX ones.
