I bought aerotwin for my adventure (from Metro around Rs740). Although initial experience was good. I see some fogging which wasnt present in my OE wiper.
I thought it should be independent of the type of wiper.

These guys are listed on Bosch India site, I called them up and they said 380/- for wiper blades of Indica.

My neighbourhood spare parts waala is selling them at 260/- but I don't know if they are genuine or not.

Can any expert guide on how to differentiate between genuine and copycats?

Default Best placer to buy Bosch wipers in Bangalore

I have observed that many BHPians are paying way too much for Bosch wipers in Bangalore. In Bangalore the best place to get the Bosch wipers are from their distributor which is on J. C. Road, just opposite to BP petrol pump. If you need cheaper than this, you can get it from Metro cash and carry if you know someone who can take you there. But in Metro only popular sizes are stocked. Just to put it in perspectice,

I bought Bosch 22" wipers for my Safari from this JC Rd distributor at Rs. 274/- with bill. Printed MRP was RS. 379/-. Later when I visited Metro I found the same wipers for Rs. 250/- something. In dealers and auto shops they would sell it anywhere from Rs. 340 to 450.

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".
Yep I was referring to Metro Cash n carry.Yes they are ordinary wipers, not Aerotwin wipers.

Thought would go get myself bosch wipers to cope with the monsoons so on my weekend trip to Pune picked up a set for my OHC from Poona Motors, charged me Rs 450 which is ok, what wasn't is 2 weeks later the wipers are leaving white trials on the glass which is just too dangerous for my weekend trips to Pune in the rains.

So I went back to him and told him about it this weekend and he told me its because the wiper system has gone bad because its not applying pressure on the glass without even looking at the car, his person repeated the same thing after a cursory glance. He didn't have much time for me so I didn't have much choice but to let it go. The thing is the old wipers didn't fog the screen or leave white trails, infact am unimpressed with the Bosch wipers, even my old wipers were better.

Definitely won't be dealing with Poona Motors either, more interested in selling than customer service and ensuring a good job is done.

Finally got myself a pair of aerotwins for my swift. But sadly it has not rained a drop since :(

Got it for Rs.1700 from the Bosch dealer in Pattom.

The 22" Bosch wiper size for the Safari seems to be outdated.
I replaced the factory ones in mine with a set of Bosch 22"s and found the driver side one to be shorter and the passenger side to be longer (infact extended beyond the windshield frame).

Confused, I had a look at the factory ones. The driver side Syndicate read "600 mm" (24") and the passenger side one reads "500mm" (20").
So, BEWARE! Don't go by Bosch's size chart.
24" and 20" are the right sizes for the safari.

many of my friends also reported the same to me. even i have faced it couple of times. the guy has got a lot of attitude as if he owns the punes best and only accessory shop ever.

well you can press the wiper link yourself so that it applies pressure on the glass. its very simple. also the wiper blade self adjusts to the shape of the glass. i had a similar issue on the passenger side wiper. just bent the wiper blade connector link a bit and issue was resolved.

i got a new bosch blade 2 days back for the drivers side. 18". costed me 140 rs. the effect was amazing. cleaned each and every drop effectively.
my old wiper used to leave a trail of water drops which used to make the night driving experience horrible

Try rubbing the edges of wiper blades with sand paper(fine one) once in 6 months as edges become oily and dirty(white water marks etc) and sometimes hard too. Even with this you don't get good output change the wiper blades . Try these days in Bangalore as it is raining sometimes

Hi Guys,

I have changed my Honda Civic wiper and second year running on the car, during rains I had this problem last year and thought it is the wipers so I changed them but the problem remains the same.

What happens is when the wipers run on the glass they leave white fog kinda effect on the front windscreen on the outside which settles in a while maybe 2-5 secs (i have already installed new wipers), but if the wipers are on interval or something, if I have to run them permanently then it will stay there as it wont get the time to clear .

My one more mate has a same problem and he was asked by Honda service guys if he wants them to do some windscreen treatment so that this is fixed. It will cost Rs. 1500.

I was thinking if anyone knows how this can be fixed by myself or any other suggestion/insight appreciated.

Can anyone help.

Cheers
