Found 16th Mar 2015
Flat wiper blades at £2.99 in a variety of sizes. Tried them today and they seem fine.
Good deal if your wipers have been goosed scratching ice off your windscreen in the Winter months and you do not want to pay ferrari prices for your fiesta. Just the job for washing off all that summer rain. If they only last 'til next year, you're still winning.
Seen a couple of comments in the motoring forums saying, that they are 'okay'.

They are better than "okay", I had tried 3 different sets of regular wipers and they all made loud squeaking noises. Biught these wipers a long time ago, and they are still working good.

Got some positives, but the snobbers are out too.
You know, the sort that takes their waitrose bags to Lidl...

You can get flat blades off ebay for cheaper with delivery included. £4.89 for 2 for my Jaguar X Type. They last about a year before they start to smear and streak despite cleaning but I try to stretch them to 2 years if possible (buy a set just before MOT and then next year they're 1 year old and still fine... but before the 3rd MOT I replace them again). I've had more expensive Bosch Aero wipers in the past which last about twice as long so they're not really worth 4-5x the price most of the time.

I know ebay's a tiny little store but could you pin it down a little better, rather than a random ebay deal from a random ebay dealer?
Was it fleabayfred who imports from the chungwahhh factory in nanking, or jimmybayer who imports from wangho best car part maker, Ho Chi Minh city or ......etc etc etc etc...
I'm being facetious, Imight have tried the ebay ones myself, although I got stung recently, after buying cheap cheap heatsink paste which was actually colgate. Smelled nice and minty though.
Anyway, thanks for the comment.
God Bless.

A lot of folk are liking this deal, but there are lot of boy racer type snobs who are still upset because of Germy, them being closet Germy fans an all.
