Pack of two which you cut to size - £3.99 :P
None in Makro Glasgow :( - they might get them in the new year with the next JML delivery (was meant to be yesterday)
They are about £4.50 + VAT (seen the sticker)

Sorry

Meant to mention that it was the Edinburgh Makro that had them.

There were sh*t loads last week!!!!

If you phone and ask for a stock enquiry......they will tell you if they are still in stock

Have a cool yule :lol:

Thought I would update this; one of these

http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/produc ... 706&page=1

as recommended, and it works a treat and even looks cool. I have done some calculations and reckon it is 37.2% better than the old one.

Job done :thumbsup :lol:

S1 wipers only...

Get an S2 arm and then any old wiper will fit (Within reason!) it will also wipe instead of smear....

can you not put wonder wipers on the old S1 blade? budget price - £5

however, I do recommend the S2 arm! :thumbsup

I have a new S2 arm with a part-worm blade on it.

If any one wants it i can bring it along to the next biggish run or TT2007

I finally got around to getting a new wiper blade and went for the one JJ commented on above: http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/produc ... 706&page=1

Not had any rain to test it with yet, but what a difference clearing the water from the windscreen washers! Plus, no squeaking now! Yay! Highly recommended. :thumbsup

Why are you all ordering 24" blades when the S2 blade is 28" iirc ?

I bought one of those PIAA silicone 24" blades before the winter. Fits like a glove on my S2.

Either that or turn the blade round - same thing happened on my S2! Turned the blade round and bent the arm a bit - easy!
