Wiper Blades

Hi all,

I need some new wiper blades for my IS. I'm after the whole replacement not just the blade it's self.

Does anyone know the best place to get them from?

Halfords don't sell them, i rang the dealer and they said around £35 for both. I have seen them on ebay for £10 for both.

Has anyone got them off ebay before and does anyone know the sizes i need. Is it 22" and 19".

Thanks.

If you want something different I would recommend some retrofit flat wiper blades that look like the ones fitted to many new vehicles. After experimenting with a few different brands, I find the Bosch Aerotwin the best! Pic below for reference, but then I had ones from Trupart which unfortunately turned out to have a faulty blade on the driver side. If you gets ones from eBay, stay away from the ProVision (or similar spelling) ones, they perform horribly as they don't wipe properly on the downward motion.

BTW, I got my wiper blades from http://www.wiperblades.co.uk/, very convenient just select your vehicle and it lists all the correct wiper blades, which are 22" and 19". Oh and even the most expensive (eh... the Bosch Aerotwin :blush: ) is only £25 for the pair, the normal ones work out to be around £10, so stay away from the sdealers for these!

Did I read it rgiht? £25 PER blade (for the PIAA Silicone Sporza wiper blade & carrier carbon) - WoW! That is definitely way outof my budget and I'd rather pay Dealer price for them and replace them more often. Crickey...£50 for the pair, here I was thinking that the 'flat blade' Bosch were a little pricey @ £25 for the pair ;)
