E86 Coupe - Windscreen wipers

Post by parabolica » Fri Mar 27, 2020 12:05 am

Your experience may vary, but I fitted a set of OEM Bosch wipers when I bought my car and within a month they were squealing like a banshee and the drivers' side didn't sit flat against the screen so always left a half-moon of untouched windscreen right at the bottom of the windscreen, not to mention a huge triangle between the blades.

Swapped for Aerotwins and never looked back. Yes the blade sits off at the far passenger side when it's in the part position, but it clears the windscreen absolutely fine (and completely silent!)
