    just buy some refills from your local car accessory shop and swap the rubbers, should cost about 4 quid for the pair

    He said best wiper blades. Replacing the rubbers is never going to be the best option. I have Aero style ones on my S3, they are brilliant. Got them from wiperblades.co.uk. Other than that just get some decent quality ones, champion or something along those lines.

    I have Aero wipers, can't say they are great still unsure about them! As for your link I think Dog Fart brought some recently off Ebay, maybe they are the ones!

    i did indeed buy those very ones off ebay and they are brilliant, loads better than the standard ones - leaving no streaks and clearing the screen completely

    Trying to order these and thought I would give them a call - turns out they are in Worcester too and only a 5 mins drive away! That never happens! Normally, anything i want car related is on the other side of the world. Result!
