Pros: streak free every time, high speeds don't effect usage
"Had these wipers on the car for a few weeks now and I highly recommend them no streaks silent enough and no juddering on the motorway. If you don't want your typical wipers and want some flat blades without the high price tag these are the wipers for you."

"The wiper blades don't flatten to the windscreen enough and they are too bulky where they attach to the wiper arm. On some cars they might catch the top of the bonnet as they stick out too much."

"Been annoyed with the performance of my wipers for a while. Even tried using proper Renault wipers. Still awful. These ones however are excellent. Work well with no smearing at all."

"These wipers are fab. They leave the windscreen very clear and are silent as they move. They were easy to fit and look good too."

Pros: quiet operation, improved water clearance, no streaks, easy to fit
Car Make Vauxhall astra
"I fitted the 20" 19" front and 16" rear wiper in minutes and i am very pleased with their performance,
They leave no dirty or irritating streaks, give a very clear view with quieter operation
I cannot fault them. Give them a try they're worth it!"
