I have Bosch Aerotwin retrofit 'flat' blades on my Lag, and I have nothing but praise for them - perhaps it's only the cheaper ones which are a problem - Bosch claim the Aerotwin retrofit kits are tensioned specifically for the application. They're definitely much better than the original wipers on the car which buffeted quite badly at speed (might just be dodgy tensioning.)

They're also much quieter (presumably due to their very light weight compared to the originals) and the end caps come off, too, so I should just be able to replace the rubbers when the blades go.

Mind you, they were 20, which is about 4x what I usually spend on wipers, so they'd better be good!
