Wiper Blades

In need of some help from the fellow fanatics, made the stupid decision to buy cheap blades and within 2 months they need to be replaced.

Can someone recommend me some good wiper blades?

This.

Just make sure you buy RHD ones. I accidentally bought LHD ones from the states not realising there was a difference. They are shaped so wind pushes them towards the windscreen. My LHD ones worked fine until a mate with a keen eye pointed it out to me and reminded me every time he saw my car!

OEM! just replace the rubber part which you can buy from the dealer and its wipes as good as brand new

I just got a pair of evo blades from Brighton BMW paid $130 but they look very swish! They just need a minor adjustment (clip removed if fitting them to wipers that previously had older blades in them). Main reason i like them is no more sharp metal ends which scratched my windscreen on the old ones.

Do you remember what the dealer charges? I hate putting money into wiper blades because in Florida, they last about 6 months before the sun kills them. I think I would rather put cheap ones on and replace them every 4 months....

I bought Bosch Aerotwin AR728S, they fit good. Just get them from UK ebay for the RHD version. Costs about 27 pounds shipped.

You 100% on this? When I search that on eBay it says they're for a Corolla. Not doubting you just wanted to double check, when I search for E46 M3 it's around $50AUD shipped.

BMW Purists look away....

Some "adjustment" to the factory wiper frame and now the standard auto parts store $5 blade fits and works perfectly. I'm not always a cheap bastard but some things I just can't justify spending more "just because it's for a BMW"
