Have you ever found a product that does everything you want it to, everything that it’s supposed to do, time after time after time? You’re aware there’s other products out there that do the same job, and they might be just a good, but you stick with your favourites because your experience tells you to. Well that’s just how I feel about the Bosch AeroTwin windscreen wipers.
Call me a ‘closed book’, I don’t care, but the last pair I had lasted 4 years on my Discovery before they started to smear, that’s driving around 7 – 10k a year. What makes that remarkable is that we’re not just talking about the usual road grime either, as 4×4 owners, we expect wipers to shift dust, mud, and whatever else we drive through!
Because the AeroTwin is made from a one-piece rubber profile with an integrated spoiler that provides an even pressure along the entire blade, they offer smear-free wipe across the entire windscreen. Another benefit is, as they don’t have a metal frame and brackets as on conventional wiper blades, this helps to reduce snow and ice build-up during winter.
Aerotwin Retrofit wiper blades are incredibly easy to fit too, and because they hook into the conventional wiper arms they don’t require you to rummage around for the right clip for your vehicle.
They may not be the cheapest around, but I’d rather pay that bit extra for their superb performance.
