Flat blade wipers - recommended!

After 5 years of service (not bad going) my wipers were shot and actually scratching the screen (only noticed after recent replacement windscreen).

After scouting round the forums went for these:

Alfa Spider 1995-2006

Have to say they are brilliant! Finally got some flat wipers Washer jets are also very good and fit and finish appear to be excellent. The only small criticism is that the supplied rubber hoses dont quite fit the OE clips, meaning tie wraps are needed (or if you have the patience, modify the OE clips) - but you dont notice the tie wraps.

Smooth, smear free wiping and good overall coverage from the jets. Fair price too.

As well as all that the company itself seem to be very good - delivered to The Netherlands inside 3 days for only 2.30 - bargain!



p.s. be careful with which set you go for - there are a few listed variants for Spiders/GTVs depending on model and age.

-1998 916 Spider 2.0TS Lusso-
H&S Corse stage 1.
CATCAMs stage 1 cams with Savali custom ECU remap.
305mm discs with 166 4-pot callipers.
Ragazzon exhaust mid section.
Biscione Racing 2x70mm rear section.
Polybush suspension.
17" Zender Siena wheels with 3mm rear spacers.
etc etc etc!

I've got these - vast improvement. My only problem is one wiper arm spring is a bit feeble so doesn't press the blade onto the screen as well as it should and so can miss a bit. Lubricating the hinge has helped but really need a new arm. But they are 70+ from Alfa!! can we get the arms from elsewhere (without the blade etc) or just the spring?
