Didn't get a chance to test this, but will update the status in 2-3 days. The total cost was Rs: 300/- and installed the same myself.
Today night i tested the wipers in heavy rain and it worked extremely well compared to my stock which was making a fog effect in my mirrors even in small rains during night. Also the noise was much less compared to stock syndicate. Its worth the money that you spend.

Bought a pair of Bosch Wipers. 22' & 16' for Rs 320/- (Fiesta) and a pair for a friend's Indica, 24' & 16' for Rs 340/-. Yet to try it out in the rains. Waiting!!!

premdiv - What is this fog effect on the mirrors?

Edit: asethi - Yeah, I too did doubt he was referring to windshield. There was a discusion going on in the "Driving in the rains" thread about fog on the outer side of windshield.

It rained about a hour yesterday, avoided going out cause had bad time driving in rains with stock ones iam having, seems they are now too old to be used.

I'll be visiting a Bosch dealer today.
Will be buying wiper for Santro, will post my experience soon.

where can I find Bosch wipers in Mumbai? Preferably between Kandivali-Mira Road? I need to move on in life from those lousy syndicate wipers. Over the years their quality is gone down.

PS: I change them every 6 months and hence quoting this.

Guys - went through the entire posts pages, surprisingly there is no comparison between the regular BOSCH blades & the AEROTWINS?

Suggest someone please put in a comparison about the blades and BTW - the fog factor on windshield has got nothing to do with the blades, but the temperature in the car and outside... Experts correct me if I am wrong

AMTAK - suggest you try Borivali, which is the Chamunda Circle road/lane. There are a lot of car accessories shops out there and you can get almost everything out there.

Worst case try Choksi Motors, Milan subway as indicated by one tbhpins here, not too far i guess!

BTW - where is Mira Road do you live??
