I'm having a little difficulty locating oe wipers on line there are plenty of Bosh aero twin, but I've had them and not that impressed with them if I'm honest, so i want some Ford ones. I just can't seem to find any.

What's wrong with Bosch ones? Ive had them twice now and find them great.
David i have had a few sets of Bosh to say the least, i just find they are a little noisy at times, and tend to judder as well, it may be that mine are cream crackered :lol:

Mick, they shouldn't be noisy if they're in good condition, I hate noisy wipers too mate and found that when they judder they're probably cooked and not as flexible as they should be.

I normally change my set once a year.

I got a couple of Bosch sets from Costco ages ago when they were on offer. Can't remember what they were actually called now - it was ages ago - but they were OK..

It really wouldn't surprise me if the OE Ford ones are made by somebody else anyway, just have a Ford badge on them.

Fitted a set of Aerotwins at the weekend (front and rear). Have to say the quality of the Ford/Motorcraft ones feels a lot better. Bosch ones came with a tacky plastic adapter for the fronts. Proof is in the pudding, but it may well be back to Ford next time around!

Bit late to the party but sometimes ford can be cheaper for wiper blades, not sure what the price is as I get them from a mate who works for ford.

Well after a few months really not impressed with the aerotwin at all - get loads of spatter off the end of the long blade.
Ordered a set of ford blades now so hopefully they'll work out better!
