Has anybody changed them in Civic, if yes, how is performance as compared to the OEMs?

Also, what is the cost and where can I get them in Gurgaon (if not then where in Delhi) ?

Just got a pair for my Palio, got them in a hurry since I was travelling to Mangalore over the weekend & the rains were very bad & my original wipers weren't cleaning that well.

Couldn't check the price elsewhere & got them for Rs. 850 a pair (24"/16"). Initially the guy didn't even know the size & gave me 16"/16", luckily I remembered a post here mentioned that the size for Palio is 24"/16".

Bought it from Need For Speed near Kadri Temple Road, Mangalore. 'm sure the guy cheated me.

Shucks, Dodo I think he charged you twice the price or did u get the Aero twins or something but those should have been more expensive I guess. . Most of us have bought out wipers for under 400 bucks.

I have been using aero twin in my lancer since last year but now it's time to change again. I think it's always better to go for regulars and change every year.Bought one regular for my skoda last week and it's perfect.
Try wurth windshield washer addictive for better wiping.

400 is overkill

All the part numbers are on the first page of this thread. In any case the names of the cars are printed on the packing. So just go to any Bosch dealer and tell them which car you have. They'll give you the correct blades. Also remember to put some Wurth liquid in the washer tank as this will make the wipers super smooth. Costs Rs.100 and lasts 6 months.

Default Me too

Replaced the wipers on my Aveo U-VA with regular Bosch (22"/16") wipers. Cost - Rs.320/-. The stock wiper rubber was starting to show age and would leave traces of un-wiped areas on the windshield. Just got a few minutes of driving in heavy rain yesterday evening. Bosch seems to do the job.

Ok, So I got cheated due to my haste.

But guys in Mangalore & those travelling to Mangalore, beware of this shop NEED FOR SPEED. Avoid it at all costs & if any Mangy guy here could do me the favor of letting the guy at NFS know how I feel about him I would certainly be grateful to him.

Am planning to get a pair of Aerotwins for my Honda City and a pair of regular Bosch wipers for my Matiz. Has any one tried these for these cars and any user experience would help me decide. Just to state, I am happy with the stock wipers on Honda City.

Are you referring to Metro - Cash and Carry. Sorry, I don't know anyone who can take me into this place.

Coming to the wipers - are you referring to the cost of ordinary Bosch wipers or the cost of Aerotwin wipers?

And yes, the Honda City wiper size is 20" and 18".
