That makes us feel so good. All those hours spent with Syndicate in perfecting the rubber blades on the wiper assembly seems well spent now.

I too vote 10/10 for Syndicate. It happened like this, I had been using the Ford OEM wipers ever since 2005. It never used to satisfy me that much. Somehow the other day when I drove the Santro in rain, which has Syndicate, it was so good that it striked me, why not try it on the Ikon? So I stole the blades :lol from the Santro and put it in the Ikon (the blades are little longer in the Santro, but still fitted perfectly in the Ikon). And Wow! It was SO good, so clear wiping and no sound at all.

I plan to buy one pair of Syndicate blades of Santro size and put it in the Ikon and give the original Santro's blade back to the Santro. Any idea how much it costs?

i also changed my fusion wipers to Bosch. Did not feel that awesome. I remember one of my friends old Premier 118NE getting a bosh wiper directly from their factory through one of their employees. That one worked like a dream. You should see its cleaning capability to believe it. I think there should be export quality products being made and maybe these are not available with the dealers at our places. Have not used syndicate. Anyone knows where i can get one in trivandrum

Because the santro's is slightly longer than the ikon's and it performs so good! i also have a liking for long wiper blades The long wiper blades of the maruti 1000/esteem fascinated me a lot in my childhood days.

Hey is the Washer Fluid as posted on Syndicate good, Anyone used it- If its water repelling then it would be great buy for Monsoons.

Bosch wiper blades are available in TVM at a dealer (forgot the name) opposite the PSC office at Pattom.
I tried them on my Siena. Worked better than the stock Syndicate ones but made an irritating clicking noise with each wipe

@ gkrishk : Was it a click or a squeaking noise?

I got Bosch for my Ikon and Syndicate for my Zen..
Huge price difference..

Syndicate costed Rs 250 for a pair..while Bosch costed Rs170 for a single blade..

Havent got the chance to observe them as the rains stopped after I got them..hehehe

Also I have a problem..Sometimes the right wipers dont clean the windshield properly..I mean you can see Arcs made by the blades..and they sound as if they are vibrating..I faced this problem on both Zen and Ikon..With Bosch's wipers on?? What could this be?
