Re: 156 Wiper upgrade
My garage did the same to me at the last service because the "wear sensors" on my Valeo wipers had gone yellow. Had to drive home with a pair of brand new Bosch blades juddering across the screen. They are now on my wife's 145 (don't tell her please!) and I now have a pair of Valeo flat blades fitted to my 'wagon.
They are great but I have gaffer taped the silly "sell by date" annoying b'stard glowing yellow things that Valeo use to make you buy new wipers long before they stop doing what they are supposed to do!!
They must think we are stupid........ mind you it work on the average garage mechanic, especially if we are paying for the priviledge!
