I think i got it for Rs 860.
I never tried the regular one after I switched from the stock blades .Before using Bosch I used the ones from hella and they were damn noisy .
These blades are really good. You can try these.
Hope it helps

When i went to their store , they dint have the 22/16 in the display area so sent one of their guy to check in the stock-room to see if they had in stock or not and that guy came back with one, so i will suggest you call them once before you go, to see if they have 22/16 in stock or not .

I am also planning to switch to aero twins for my Figo, the OEM that i changed did not last well at all and was not worth the purchase and labour charge that A.S.S charged me.

I see that vicky.in http://www.vicky.in/shopping/wiper-blades/is selling the aero twin for Fiesta at Rs.840 , i hope the same fits for Figo too.

Had to buy Hella DynaEdge instead of normal Bosch or Hella as three shops that I visited did not have 14" which is needed for my car. To my surprise, my car ( Honda City 2006 model) was using 24" and 14 and 1/2" wipers. Since 15 " would be extending beyond glass boundary, had to go for 14".

Finally, Reliance Autozone on double road, Bangalore had both sizes only in Hella Dynaedge, went ahead with it. So far no chance to use it in rains but normal testing with windscreen washer liquid jets does not show any improvements. it was streaking a lot. Will wait for some time to pass judgement.

Cost was little over 1100 as 24" was about 580+ and 14" was 560+.

Could have gone to dealer in this area, as contacts are available in this thread but roaming around finding a dealer place and getting parking on any day would be a tough ask, so decided not to worry about dealer discounts.

I bought a pair Bosch Clear Advantage in JC road for Rs 830, i heard from the seller that Bosch clear advantage is replacment for Aero twins and aero twins were single's and not availbel in pairs.VID also mentioned the same in the earlier posts.

The size for my Figo was 22/16 and they have been doing an amazing job, they look similar to the one's that come on Punto as OEM but much broader but strangley they dont lock with a click to wiper handles as mention on the box and for the rear i bought normal bosch wipers which are only availabel in 12 size for aftermarkert.

It will be given the manual. Or else you can take a measuring tape and get the lengths of the wiper blades

Try contacting a Bosch dealer in Delhi using the dealer locator:

How much did they cost you? And how much for the rear wiper?

I plan to give Bosch a shot this time, as my OEM wipers on the Fiesta are at the end of their life---the first pair lasted 3 years and this is the second set. Ford had charged me 700 for the pair and another 100 for labour!

And do they look different from the rest of the wipers in the market? I'm asking because I have a vague suspicion that some drivers in my apartment might be swapping my wipers when nobody is around. There are 2 more Fiestas in my complex. This apart, my car cleaner always leaves the wipers away from the body to indicate his attendance, which could make things easier for evil minds.

Don't know about the Laura.
For the Pajero I think it's 20" / 19".

I read about Bosh wiper in Team BHP several years back, and changed mine at that time itself. And I can say, the quality is relay great, an Bosh is much better than any other wiper. Based on my experience, some of my friends too changed and they are also equally happy.

I got a pair of wipers for my Fiesta from the Bosch Service Center at RP Road, Secunderabad. I paid Rs 344 for the set. Surprisingly they did not have the Fiesta listed in their list for the costlier variety called Clear Advantage, else I'd have bought those.

Let me see how this new set goes.
