    £30 for Audi for the front two which i think it is scandalous so does anyone know of any decent quality replacements, BOSCH or similar?

    You can get them off eBay for around £10 delivered but i can't be arsed with them is the quality is poor, IE lifting blades when driving down the motorway etc.

    Thanks

    I've just had a set off eBay delivered. Not fitted them, but will today.

    They are Bosch Aerotwin. Direct fit, complete replacement.
    Was £20.
    Didn't fancy a cheapo set for £10.

    Audi ones will be made by someone for them most likely. As are a lot of parts. The sheer cost of setting up a factory prohibits making everything themselves.

    I got a set from ebay for £10 they have been alright to be fair. Been on the car for nearly 6 months now and still OK. They are no Bosch but they work fine and I would buy them again. I dont think they will last as long and I think thats where the difference comes in.. For a tenner they are fine..

    no mine isnt in my line of sight, its at the tip of the wiper blade.
    Im sure if its happening in the middle of the wiper then the blade needs changing, might just change mine over and see if that fixes it
