What type blades you got?

I just replaced the rubbers in mine with a cheap tescos spare set kicking around in the garage... (Not sure what they were for, probably from our old Pug) Don't get much cheaper than that :lol:

They are sprung blades though...


And have you tried the Club Spares?

I use RainX, only ever put wipers in place for MOT.

If it rains so hard that I can't see, I pull over and stop till it passes by.

Off the top of my head I think our wiper blades at KK are £8+ Vat each.. then of course, if you are an SSVC member you get discount.. looks like a pretty good deal?
