Fake Bosch Aerotwin Wipers

28 August 2014 - 09:28 AM

Bought these Bosch wiper blades for my Focus , on receiving them they don't look anything like the old Bosch blades I had. Now I know manufacturers change their designs over time, but my initial thoughts are they are fakes. What's your thoughts, has anyone bought Bosch Aerotwins lately and what do they look like? Bottom photo is the new blade.





Wheel Balancing Weights

24 April 2014 - 09:13 AM

I had a set of Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance fitted to my car yesterday for the rear to replace a worn conti and dangerous (no grip) autogrip that were on the car when I got it, bought from tyreshopper and fitted by National tyres in West Brom. First of all really notice the difference in grip and ride quality/noise, but......

I was washing it this morning and noticed there were no stick on weights anymore, checking underneath the car I see that that have used clip on weights o. The inside rim of the wheel.

Is it standard to fit clip ons onto alloys? I thought it was standard to use stick ons on alloys, although a Google showed clip ons were available specifically for alloys.

I had Kwik fit, fit clip ons once when I had a new set of tyres on my last car and they used steel wheel weights that fell off when I touched them! When I took it back there they replaced with stick ons.

I must say they seem nice and secure this time and only one small one per wheel.

Interested on your thoughts on this, is there an industry standard?

Did Anyone On Here Buy These Wheels?

30 March 2014 - 07:17 PM

I was watching some 2013 focus ST wheels on ebay and they went for an absolute steal. Any focus owner on here buy them?

I nearly put a bid in for £500 but chickened out at the last minute as I can't justify it when I have immaculate ZS alloys.

I expect the seller is feeling robbed at the moment.
