    I need new ones, was considering these Bosch Aero wipers. Anyone have any experience with them? Good/bad?

    I was thinking silicone would be better but cant find any for an E46

    PIAA make silicone wipers for the E46..

    Bosch AeroTwin are VERY good wipers, excellent performance, lifespan and looks!

    I've used the ebay aero wipers aswell.. were very good for about 3 months then very noisy and poor performance, not a patch on the bosch aerotwin's for £5 more per pair!

    ....I'm having difficulty finding the piaa wipers.. I know for a fact they do them though, I had some in my ebay watchlist for ages before I decided I preferred the bosch aerotwins!

    I'll keep looking..

    Hi

    I have normal Bosch wipers with the spoiler size 23" and 20"

    I thought i would try the aerotwin ones so orderd some off the net.

    On the box it does not say they fit BMW and on fitting the drivers side one you can see it doesnt touch the screen in the middle and on the right hand side end it pushes so tight on the screen that it just folds down on itself.

    I have downloaded from bosch there cataloge on wipers and next to the 330ci is blank, suggesting they dont make them.

    I have emailed bosch to find out what the model number will be and when i get a reply i will post it on here.

    Thinking i should of gone with the ones kevin posted up as atleast they are the correct size
