wiperblade - anything better out there?

Post by jj » Wed Dec 13, 2006 2:39 pm

Need a new one, wondered if there was a preffered kind out there that suits? The current one is a bit smeary and misses the top of the screen......

cheers in advance chaps

JML wonder wiper IIRC. I use an S2 wiper (Vast improvement on the original) and Rain-X. Don't need wipers above 30!

From memory, as recommended on Exiges.com, I got a PIAA from Demon Tweeks which has massively improved the wiping ability even tho' only available in a size 1" shorter and supposedly straight, not curved.

Highly recommended :)

I read somewhere on SELOC that the JML is no longer available.

i bought the s2 arm - I couldn't find one that came with a blade so I threw my money away on a bosch spoiler thingy.

What a difference! I can see!!! :thumbsup

no more ace ventura style driving...

halfrauds - but to be honest, i'd get the autobulbsdirect one above if i were you - it looks the business!

The bosch one is good (not brilliant), but they didn't have the 24 inch one in stock in bishopbriggs branch.
