Modus Wipers: Ebay Seller Range 8 to 34!

I just want a couple of the standard 24"/28" wiper blades which are not metal-backed (Hi-Flex/Aero type). Ebay sellers quote from 8 to 34 to 40 (Bosch) a pair including postage. That's a huge range. Would the 8 ones do the job or better to pay more if I'm keeping the vehicle? Last time I paid about 28 for a pair from Wilco stores in 2011. Thanks.

Without knowing the brands or even seeing a picture it would be very difficult to advise.

I haven't bpught wiper blades in 10 years - I just renew their rubber inserts at least once a year for the princely sum of 1-99.

Quality and sellers prices vary - a lot.
I was quoted 15 by the dealer for a rear screen blade, 5 fitted at my local factors was the route I took.
Try and and get the best price on a quality brand, it's a bit like shopping around for new tyres but can save a few quid.
When sellers hear the word "Renault" they know some cars in the range have massive uncommon blade lengths and increase their price.

A year ago I got some cheap Aero wipers for my Clio off eBay . Think they were around 6 for a full set (including rear).

Still fine now & passed the MOT two days ago with them. Definitely wouldn't pay 34!

Same as JJ bought some 8 a pair one from ebay [beam type ] for my last car..couldnt find a similar deal for my clio so I paid 18 for them

Then a week later I found the same ones on ebay cheaper.. aint that always the or not I usually change them every year before the MOT..if the car passes and the old blades were still ok then I put the old ones back on and put the new ones away for a rainy day..

Wiper blades are the biggest scam when it comes to MOT's and you always end up paying through the nose to get the car through a pass.
