    Wipers

    My wipers are smearing when used, think it is time for a change. I looked on autovaux but I am unsure of which wipers are the exact ones. I have a 2001 51 Coupe I am sure they have little spoilers on the blades.

    Anyone help/recommend a good place to buy?

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Had the same problem with mine, but if they arent too old you can use either a cleaning wipe or some normal vinegar and kitchen towl to clean them, you wont believe the crud that comes off them!! But that is assuming you arent looking for an excuse to get the very sexy low profile ones mentioned earlier
