Can anyone help me with a dealership in Pune from where I can get Hella DynaEdge wiper blades? I have a 2004 Opel Corsa.

Hi everybody.
I have a Beat and the wipers need to be changed.
SMS from their workshop gives"right side 24" and left side 12".
As I don't drive too often which brand would be suitable and cost effective?
Please advise
Thanks and regards

Get the normal notch wipers, will cost you around 300/- bucks a pair. Have used them extensively, and they easily last a year.

Also, I have used hella dynaedge got them for 1100/- but didn't found them worth the money.

Everybody here is talking about the Bosch wiper blades. I tried online couldn't find any websites selling them. Has Bosch stopped these?

Meanwhile, a lot of places have Hella Universal blades. How are these? The prices look good.

I had to change my wipers on my figo as they were leaving lot of streaks. Went to store and they had both bosch and hella, the simple ones but they dint have 24 inch in hella and dint have 16 inch in Bosch. So had to settle for one hella and one bosch. They perform well. Let's see how long they last.

Paid 350 for both.

They are good, my cousin is using them on his i20. He used hella dynaedge, they didn't lasted much, so changed to normal ones.

Doing good so far.

One more place to get Aerotwins in ar Sri raghavendra Motors, which, is a Bosch Service station and they stock all Bosch products.

The place is just opposite to TYCO Electronics on Graphite India- Hoodi road.

I got myself a set of 22/16 Aerotwins for the Fico at 1000 INR.

Need to get wiper blades replaced for my Superb and BMW e60. They are both OEM Bosch, the dealerships are quoting high prices. Where can I get the Bosch blades that have the same look and casing as OEM (i think Aerotwin type?)in Mumbai? Don't mind ordering online if it is a genuine source.

I am planning to purchase Bosch wipers for my Dzire and keeping existing in stock to use in winter and summer. Which one I should go for AeroTwin or ClearAdvantage and any idea about the cost ?

Clear Advantage has superceeded the Aero Twin in the Bosch range. Both have similar characteristics. You can opt for any of the one and have a peace of mind.

Just got the Hella Dynaedge wipers for my Alto. Will put them on tomorrow and get back after using them in the rain.

Anyone know the pricing for Clear Advantage from Bosch?

I had dynaedge on my car, and was forced to switch to Bosch Aerotwins as those Hella blades were making a hell lot of noise when the wipers were on and i was getting the feeling that it might damage the glass.

So hopeful you don't face any thing like that .


Also looks like Aerotwins are out of stock , was thinking about replacing my present set of Aerotwins with new ones, but was not able to find one in 22/16 size.

Also one more thing, no matter which wiper you use, after an year or so you will need to replace them.
So this time bought a normal pair of hella blades, lets see how they perform.

But i was really happy with Aerotwins.

Got Hella basic wiper blades for my Santro at a nearby Reliance mart for 320Rs a pair and I am very satisfied with the performance as I was with the previous Bosch wipers, I don't see a good reason to spend 1300Rs on wiper blades unless you want the aerodynamic effect and the modern flat design.

All that we can expect from wiper blades is a streak and sound free operation for a year.

I bought the Hella Dynaedge for my Superb from autofresh website(very efficient!) however the damn thing does not fit the Superbs wiper arm pin. What's the solution, is there there a connector pin one can use to make it compatible?
It doesn't even seem to fit my Fortuner even though one blade size is same.
