    Wipers? Wouldn't a business plan be a better ask? How's that Amazon gig?

    £75 :eek:

    That's crazy money
    My previous ones were cheapy eBay ones, were ok but perished quite fast.
    currently using goodyear ones from Costco and threy pretty good.
    Think there were about £6 each

    Funny how you all telling me they are overpriced rubbish and yet if you search on here for them, full of threads about how much WIN they are...

    Most people, with absolutely no money, probably would have delicately said "I'm a bit short of money atm, and don't have anything I really need the money would be a lot more use".

    Still nevermind, maybe you could just sell them to and use the money to put fuel in the car?

    I pay myself bi-weekly, so I am not out of money now. Problem with that too?

    I got aero ones from eBay for the Audi and 206. £7 Max for each pair and been brilliant for the last year. At £75 you could risk buying from 10 different sellers just to get a good pair (or just do well first time like me)

    Funny how if I buy them it is a big waste of money, but all the well known names on here have had them over the years but that is fine.

    YET you can only buy them from one place : the official distributor, which means everyone spent the exact same amount.

    Funny that :rolleyes:

    They buy them for £25 per wiper just like I did?

    Or please, enlighten me as to where you can buy them for less in the same size?

    I don't use them.myself. looking at the reaction though it seems you can get them cheaper, furthermore I'd never buy wipers that are that much. Especially if I was struggling with cash... Clearly these wipers aren't fit for purpose so get a refund and get another set.

    I am not struggling for money.

    Just because you can buy unbranded Chinese aeros for £8 off ebay does not mean that my Si-Tech's are rubbish!

    After a 20 second Google search I just found them at 4 online places. Prices varied by about 20%.

    Funny that. :rolleyes:

    Also back on the OP ... stumbled across this at the same time : http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/42913/piaa-super-silicone-wiper-8c-11

    If they were that good, you wouldn't be on here posting about how they aren't working correctly.

    Just saying.

    I have PIAA silicones on my car. They're great. One was faulty though. You could see it was cos when it rained, one side, the rain ran off, one side didn't. PIAA replaced it and it's fine.

    I paid about £15 per blade. They're available from a few places other than the distributors. I got mine from Camskill.
