You can try bending it a wee bit by applying a little force.

Talking Finally I have the Bosch wiper Blades

Finally after so many months, i now have BOSCH wipers in my santro.


Oh wow, they cleaned so smoothly, and that irritating screach is gone.
certainly they appear to be more precise than the stocks one.
I paid Rs.280 (Rs.160 + Rs.120) for the two blades

(one is 20inch and one is 17 inch )

i picked up a set of Bosch wiper blades last weekend for 340.

They surely give what you call as "Streakless wipe"

Bangalore folks -

The entire Bosh Aerotwin range is available at Metro too. I visited the one on Kanakpura road and their prices were lower than what I've been quoted in the market.

This metro place needs membership or something right? if somebody can pick up a pair for swift, i would be more than happy to pay up also

Anyidea what the price quoted was?

Ran into some very heavy rain on the Chennai - Blr sector last night. About 30km before Vellore (at 6pm) the rain got so heavy that almost everyone had to stop. After that, there were intermittent heavy downpours till I reached Blr at about 11 pm.
The new blades performed well, and nighttime visibility was much better. I had always had a streaking issue with the stock blades.
For all that its worth, the Bosch blades certainly have my thumbs up.

I was caught up into some heavy rain in the Blore-Krishnagiri stretch today.

But unfortunately, the Bosch Wipers that I'd put on some 3 weeks back seem to have conked out. They made too much noise, refused to clean and made some streaks. Had to drive very very slowly after that :(
