2004 V70R - Bosch Wiper Blades - Primarily for Winter
Posted 06 December 2010 - 07:49 PM
Bosch's US site suggests they don't make any for my car, but I have read that many are using them. I am mostly concerned with Winter wiper blade performance, as my cheapo (Cdn.Tire sourced) summers work well when replaced annually... Other thoughts/suggestions are welcome.
ps. first real snow fall arrived last night. 6" in Northern Toronto. True powder... would rather be boarding! At least it was only snow, not ice on the windows.

Glad I went with these, better fit than the Reflex Hybrids and certainly a better view. I have also deciced to try Rain-X Windsheild Wiper Fluid this winter to see if it makes a difference. So far I am happy..perhaps that's why the blades stopped squeaking on Day 2? MY '00 is still alright with plain fluid and generic Wipers from Cdn.Tire.. Flatter screen perhaps.
Be warm and see well this winter

The stuff is flawless in the other 3 seasons. I can see great in driving rain with wipers on intermittent.

No, wait -- works like a cold damn. Anyway -- undoubtedly available all over the place, not just Canada. Works for really well me, absolutely. Also at least a buck cheaper than what it listed on this web page.
Here it is:

Temp has been under -24C all day today. Warming up slowly, blowing snow. The roads are totally shi**y. Lots of crap on the windshield from all the spray and other stuff thrown up by other vehicles. This stuff works great, so far at least.

We live in the rain out here so wipers are important as anything on the car. I even redesigned the Range Rover fitment to take Icons as the factory blades were really noisy.

oh well. My search resumes again.. I park my car outside (I know, I know)... and some mornings I have to really work at releasing the wipers and clearing the windows more than I;d like.
Anyone have suggestions for Winter Wiper Blades? will search all the other threads now as well.
Cheers, and almost a Happy New Year!
ps. Yes. I still am trying to find a local supplier of the Icon's (not the eveolutions) to try when my Volvo blades giv up next spring or summer.
