Need new wipers on front of the mk2.5 focus and was just wondering whats the best make to get and wheres the best price for them?

 

I think the ones i have at the moment are bosh. a guy down at the local autoshop said not to use cheap  ones and stay with bosh as they last and dont squeak or smear?? so I though i would ask what do you guys think.

 

thanks

Michelin Stealth.

Not the cheapest but last ages and don't smear or chatter.

  the last time i changed i used Bosh see my guide here for the specific Bosh part numbers:

I would like to try the Michelins but not sure if i could afford them this time around,
If you go on ebay and searh for "Bosh wipers A978S" instead of searching for "ford focus wipers"
You will get exactly the same wipers and may be cheaper because the listing is not model specific.

They still don't squeak,
Was considering removing the windscreen completely and just wearing goggles,
Would be much less surface area to wipe and save me 27.00GBP every 2-3 years aswell as not having to pay for windscreen cover on my insurance policy, its all Win/Win
