Advice: Call / PM satya before hand and ask if he has the wipers available for your car. Would save you time.

Thumbs up I am just in love with the Aero Twin

Dear Forumers,

I just picked a pair of Bosch Aero Twins for my Accent CRDi.

I just love them for their performance.

Nothing else will do

Cheers

  • Very easy to install Bosch wipers
  • Silent operation - No sound when you use them. Stock wipers would produce a dragging sound like grrrrr
  • For my chevy spark, the passenger side wiper really goes to the top of the drivers glass (will upload an image soon)
  • Improves visibility as it quickly cleans the water
I would say go for it.

Where would we get the "Rubber only" part of the blades for replacement. I checked out Bosch authorized and they suggest that it comes only as a Set. 2000/- + for one set, including the arm and rubber blade.

I want to upgrade, but where would i get replacement rubber blades.

I called up Agarwal's on Friday to check availability of Bosch Wipers for my Palio. They said 'no stock'. Will check this week again.

I dont think you will get the rubber only part seperately. That wiper AFAIK is sold with rubber + metal housing together.

1600 is cool coz the one i saw in Reliance Autozone named Sliper Silicon would have costed some 1800 bucks i think.

Is the Aero twins silicon tipped?

My zen also requires 20 but the other is 17

Not sure what you mean by silicon tipped. They are all black in color. will upload the pic soon

Please check the exact prices with EVO. I got couple of things from him, so i could be 100 / 200 rs wrong.

I have been trying to contact Agarwal's (Bosch dealer, Bangalore) for the past three days. They are not answering any of the phone calls. I tried : 41326250, 22106091, 66815389 and 9844029424.

Anybody has any other contact details?

Hello Guys

I am planning to replace pair of wipers on my Wagon R LXI 2006 model. I request the following information from you guys:

1. Undoubtedly i am going for Bosch - I would like to know which is the best and latest model available so that i can ask specifically to the dealer?
2. I would like to know the difference between Single blades and double blades. How they are different from each other functionally?
3. Few days back i was in JC road and i heard someone talking about triple blades also? Are triple blades superior to single and double? Will the triple blades be compatible with my Wagon R?

To sum up on the above i would like to know which is the best and latest model of Bosch wipers (Why?) and should i go for single or double or triple blades (Why?)

Thanks in advance for helping me out!!

same here even i tried contacting this dealer but never got any response from other end. I will try and go to JC Road personally next week since i also had some other work on Mission Road. May be the number has changed. If possible i will get their updated contact details and pass it on to you.

By the way, did you try contacting another Bosch Dealer vijaya motors? following is their contact details:

Vijaya Motors
22224279, 22275552, 51144809

I myself didn't trying calling but you can try your luck. Alternatively you can also call their sales office in Hosur road. Their number is 080 - 2299 9228

Hope this helps!!

Why don't you try METRO cash n carry (Kanakpura Rd / Yeshwanthpur)? Here they have 100Rs off on MRP on most of the Bosch wipers.
