you can get bosch wipers at any auto parts shop but you could also buy them from shetty motors at charni road. they stock bosch wipers cos i bought them from their shop in navi mumbai. so you might get it from there.

Be careful while buying these wipers. I know that logically that Bosch should be the best, but from personal experience, I have found Syndicate wipers to give me a cleaner, better wipe, with no lines.

I have found Bosch to be better than the stock Syndicate's but even then always encounter some problem or other during the rains (usually streaking). Maybe it's the OHC's wiper design that is to blame.

There is a Bosch dealer in Sewree - KB Diesels or KD Diesels. I thought of using Bosch just to check how they stack up against Syndicate.

I called them up and asked for a pair of Skoda wipers - they got back saying that it was not in stock and expected in the next 10 days.

So I promptly called up Syndicate factory an asked them to send me Octavia wipers. their man was at my factory in 30 mins and changes the wipers. It works brilliantly.

Syndicate is OE in most cars & available with all dealers.

The numbers listed on the Bosch website for the my area are WRONG! I don't understand why they haven't updated their website

Syndicate wipers are available in almost all shops in Opera House. Or try the Milan Subway for those based in the suburbs. They work brilliantly and i think that they are at par with the imported wipers and cheaper too. Bosch is also available in the above destinations.
