see worth the ?50 just for the looks.

can you hear that they work better too? because they press into the windscreen you can hear them wosh (when parked).

plus if your old blades were very noise (as mine were) they a life saver (was very hard to put up with noise for 2 hours +).

looks great.

I got mine today, will attempt to replace on the weekend... are their any special tools or a how to for this?

I am scared i might mess it up, and the car needs its first MOT in a week or so.

They are very easy to fit. just undo the nuts securing the wiper arms and ease the wiper arms off, then put the new ones on and replace the nuts. it really is that simple. took me all of 5 mins this morning.

litterally is as easy as that........

though a recommendation is to put a bit of masking tape on the window along the blade........this way you can align the new wipers when you put them on........though, if you car was dirty like mine, i simply used the dirty line to align with.

They deffo look alot better --- work very well and my first set of blades lasted smear free for about 20 months before I needed to change them.

I would suggest you put WD40 on after to take the nut off, then go and get whatever tools you need, to allow the WD40 to work its way in. So much easier to take off afterwards!

Also, put some grease on the bit the arm sits on, the knurled pin. Will be easy to take them off again if you need too.
