Since this wiper blades come out on the market I wanted them on my car...reason you may ask:

1.The are the best wipers on the market...better cleaning and better grip due to improved aerodynamics.

2.They look much nicer then normal wipers...

Here is more info about it:

I paid 32 Euro for both.

ps: facelifted 147s and GTs are now coming with these wipers standart, BUT they are missing the cool looking wiper arms with the Alfa Romeo writen on them.

Here are two shots:

Dont wanna the risk buy them coz they cost 3x as much with the normal ones but people say them cause less 'judder'.

kgb, are this wiper blades or wiper blades AND arms? Coz it looks as if the arms themselves are different.
Looks like it`s just the blades that Bosch are selling, have to agree with ya though the arms are def different & look good.

These are just the wiper blades...the Arms are the original Alfa Romeo one's...no need to replace them or do any mods to them.

You just replace the old wiper blades with the new ones..takes 2mins.

As I said before in my previous post:

ps: facelifted 147s and GTs are now coming with these wipers standart, BUT they are missing the cool looking wiper arms with the "Alfa Romeo writen" on them!!!

They have different wiper Arms...

Price: Original Bosch wipers for 147 cost 14Euro Vs. 32Euro for the AeroTwins.

I have used them now for two days and given that it rains here everyday like hell (thanks to global climate change) I can say that their cleaning power is 3x that of the original wipers (which I replaced twice as well)...

They clean the windshield like you have cleaned it yourself when washing the car.

I am very happy with these wipers :)

I personally never favoured Bosch wipers.I tried the Champion twin spoiler and they were quite good but difficult to find. My personal choice is now Valeo Silencio. No the best look perhpas but super quite and super efficient !

looking through the bosch web site it suggests they only make them for the 156, no mention of 147??? Cant find anywhere in the uk that supply them and certainly no mention on the net-maybe will have to wait a bit

The passenger side wiper that Bosch list for the 156 is wrong anyway as it is straight (it should be curved).

when you go to the Bosch dealer you tell them that you need one 550mm and one 400mm wipers blades.

These wiper blades are made to "adjust" themselfs to the profil of the window...so no need to worry there.

BTW anyone who sells Bosch should have them or at least can point to a major bosch dealer in the area...

More photos are coming tonight...

No, the 156 passenger side blade is not straight, it is curved. The straight Bosch blade does not fit properly.

AeroTwin blades are not straigh...

Best thing to do anyways is to go to the dealer and ask them to fit the wipers on your car and see if they fit the car properly or not.

I don't know about the 147, but the passenger side blade of the 156 is curved in a completely different way to the curve you are probably thinking of!
It is difficult to describe, next time you see a 156 take a look (providing it has the correct blades fitted!!).

In the meantime I'm sticking with the Halfords own brand wiper blades that do fit.

Interestingly here Bosch say they do produce a special wiper for the 156, but I haven’t seen it for sale anywhere.
