Wiper blades

I have just renewed the wiper blades on my Honda Civic with the Bosch Aerotwin Retrofit Flat Windscreen type. My main reason was I discovered the existing wipers which were on the car when I bought it 3 years were the incorrect size - one being too long and the drivers side too short. The drivers side was a 21" blade and the passenger side was a 16" blade whereas they should have been 15" and 24" respectively. I had renewed their rubbers each year and visibilty was acceptable.

I fitted the replacements today and oh what a vast improvement although I cannot say if it was due to the new type of wiper blade design or now having the correct sizes now fitted. Perfectly good wiping and less noisey.

I'll keep a close eye on them over the Winter months and hopefully give some useful feedback.
