    Default Flatblade Wipers

    Does anybody know of a good set of flatblade wipers. Some people have bought cheap ones and they have proven to be sh*t and smear the windscreen.

    Can anyone recommend me a good set, Bosch maybe

    Links would be helpful

    Thanks

    Bosch all the way http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...1%7C240%3A1318

    But I find that no matter how good the wiper, a cr_ap washer fluid gives poor overall results with a lot of people blaming their new flatblades, irrespective of the make of blade.

    I got mine from Ebay and they are GM ones and have them fitted since June 07 and have never had a problem with them and they are so much better than the OE ones that were on the car

    Flatblade wipers have been around for a while now, I had them on my Galaxy that was used for a Private Hire Taxi and I got the car when it was 9 months old and when I got rid for the Vec it was 4 half years old with over 100k miles and I never needed to replace them and they always gave superb service. I bought a new set just incase and they are still in my garage never opened and they were made by Bosch.
    I will sell these very cheap if anyone interested
