You can buy Bosch Wipers from Vikas Trading at JC Road. Their numbers are 41131727 and 41575293. I got the wipers installed from them hardly 2 weeks back and I am happy to choose Bosch as they are more smooth and efficient than my stock syndicate wipers

Can someone please help in buying new wipers for my Vista? I have done 11K on the odo and its time to change the wiper blades. They have been used for 2 monsoon already.

Is Bosch the best one when it comes to wiper blades?

What would the right size for the Vista? Both front and rear wiper blades?

Please suggest.

i10 requires one 22'' and one 16'' wipers. So just ask them for this size. I am going to pick them today evening from J C Road. Once i pick it up, i will give you the address of the shop.

Default i10 Bosch Wipers

I got normal Bosch Wipers from a place called J K Automobiles, J C Road. Normal Bosch wipers costed Rs.266.
Enquired about Aerotwin for i10, J K Automobiles quoted Rs.1650. Prasad Agarwal, the Bosch dealer, quoted Rs.1750.
Somehow, i did not felt like spending so much for Aerotwins, so went in for normal Bosch Wipers.

Will update once i fit it and use it.

Address of J K Automobiles.
17/4, 2nd Cross, Journalist Colony, J C Road, Bangalore 2

Default i10 Bosch Wipers - Update after Installation

Installing the new wipers was pretty simple as everybody know it. These wipers are far better than the OEM wipers. Worth a penny to go for Bosch wipers

Hi guys,
We have so many people using Bosch wipers. But would be interested in knowing the feedback from people who used regular Bosch/other branded wipers and then felt the need to upgrade to Bosch Aerotwins.

I recently changed wipers in my SX4. I bought the regular ones from Hella as they had the correct size. Bosch did not have the correct size, but had the right size in Aerotwins. But the cost difference was 4 times!!!

My Hella wipers are working beautifully, cleans perfectly and not sound as well. that makes me wonder are these Aero twin wipers so good / magical to worth that kind of a premium.

Please elucidate... am I missing something here?

I picked up a pair at Sachin's auto shop, Koramangala. You can search this forum for Sachin Auto and you would get the number. It is on a road parallel to the Raheja Arcade road.

AUTOSHOP in Koramangala - on the road that goes left off the main HOSUR Road just after TATA INDICOM office.

Bought a pair of nice new Bosch 19 inch wipers for the Scorpio. Rs 320/- the pair.

Well worth it I must say.

Scorp is almost 3 years old and its OEM wipers were just beginning to cause streaks on the windscreen while in operation.

These new wipers are very good.

Hi,
I think you will find the Aerotwins for your i20. see the link below for the availability of the product
BOSCH AERO RETRO FLAT Wiper Blades HYUNDAI i20 on eBay (end time 01-Dec-10 10:17:37 GMT)

The price will not not less than 1700/-

Just make sure the size is correct for your cars, generally dealers try to push other sizes and convince you to buy them... measure your stock sizes.

Before i went in for normal bosch wipers, even i had such questions. But i was more convinced that paying 4 times more was not really worth. I have used aerotwins on our accent. It does the same job like others but the durability is good. So not worth paying 4 times more, instead change the regular ones twice a year, still you save the money.
