    Bosch Aerodynamic Wipers

    Are these available for the mk4 astra? Seen them on a few Volkswagens.

    I'm unsure whether they are aerodynamic but these are available...

    £24 from www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk I have these on my G and they look the dogs and they are excellent at doing their job.
    Its a jam thing

    The kit jam mentions is a GM Retrofit kit. Works well, and the blades are made by Valeo. Not convinced they'll last as long as Bosch, but time will tell.

    Yeah, and the tend to almost stall the motors if the screen isn't damp enough. I've seen my wipers park half way down the screen due to the friction of the Valeos on a dry screen.
