Which Wiper Blades?

Post by Warrior »

Does anybody have any reason for or against changing the traditional framed wiper blades on a Z3 for the single blade frameless Bosch Aero's or similar?

I've had Bosch Aero wiper blades (front & rear screens) on my Z3 MC since 2013, I found them to be a bit more efficient than the OEM type of wiper blades. Also in my opinion they look better aswell.

Thanks. I'm hoping they won't collect quite as many leaves as well :lol:

I've just fitted a pair of Bosch AR20 U Aerotwins as recommended when entering car Reg number into the Bosch part finder.

The drivers side one is fine and clears the windscreen well along the whole length. The passenger side however, does not touch the screen for about 4-5cms towards the outer edge?

Any suggestions?
