    Default Flat wiper question

    fed up messing around with rubbish flat blades on standard wiper arms, they have all been streaky and loud. firstly wondering if the wiper arms plus the fantastic flat blades off an a6 or a4 would fit on the vec. or has anybody had a decent set of flat wipers on their standard arms, cheers in advance

    I bought a pair of bosch flat blades and tbh its one of the best buys i've ever made. No noise or streaks. I would reccommend them to anyone. What brand did you buy??

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    I've used Bosch and Tesco's own brand. The Bosch were absolutely brilliant, and the Tesco ones were just as good at clearing the screen. The only thing with the Tesco ones, is that they have a universal fitting as opposed to the Vauxhall fitting on the Bosch ones. This meant that they were fiddly to fit and didn't look quite as nice. There's not really too much difference in price, so I do tend to stick to Bosch.I think I paid about £24 for the pair.

    I've got the GM ones (made by Valeo) and they do the job well enough.

    Had a couple of sets now and work great for me - need to keep them clean though or they can smear.
