Nope not the Aerotwin ones. Just the standard ones. The Aerotwins cost Rs.950 per blade. Blade as in just the rubber driver. You don't get the arm or the metal blade.

Thanks Sankar.
Great info and good timing too with the onset of the monsoons. For those still unclear about size specs, check out ::: Bosch Wiper Blade :::
There's a link at the bottom right of the page for wiper brochures. Contains all relevant and updated info for each make and model. Also, for dealers go to Bosch - Startpage boschindia.com and select dealer locator at the top of the page.

Before you buy please check your current blades to ensure that the length of the new one you're getting is correct. Some vehicles are not specified if it's the new model or the old eg: City & the Sonata.

(Trivandrum guys if you want to get these wipers please go to Stanes Motor Parts Ltd, CIT Road, Karamana P.O.)

Hope this helps.
