    I have the Trico Neoform. They are doing OK, but from time to time they make som noise. Have never tried with other wipers, this is my first pair of wipers on this car, and my windscreen is quite worn. For my other cars I have used some water-repellent, graphite-coated blades (brand not sold in UK), who works very nice on several cars, and will try those next time.

    I got some off ebay for £10, they went straight on have been working brilliantly ever since, I think I spend the difference between them and GM ones on beer?

    Sounds like a rational investment

    I think it was, they still remove water from the screen and they are still flat. Worked for me anyway. Not sure if it was beer, might've been slammers?

    I got a set of Tesco flat blades from my local store in Greenock.£8 for the pair.DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT buy them!!! Terrible.Smear and on the motorway they miss half the screen. Seemed like a good idea at the time but spend the extra and get branded ones.Better value in the long run IMO

    I meant the beer. Wipers you can always postpone, but the beer has to be cold, and....
