    Bit of a boring one im afraid... When I bought my S3 last year I fitted new Bosch blades, paid a fair bit. However, never really been too happy. I notice when driving around 40+ mph, when the wipers are on the way back to down to normal position they leave a few excess drops here and there on the screen right in front of my view point.
    Also, when the drivers side blade reaches the furthest point (near the side of the screen) there is a very slight pause and a bit of a noise as it changes direction. They're very minor issues but im finicky with this sort of thing ! I wonder whether the wipers are stopping in the correct place - possibly too high on the screen? Which blades do you guys use? Anyone getting similar results?
