just fitted these exact ones to my D4 Sunday, bit early for full review but so far so good, no wind noise, no squeaks, easy to fit. They have some flimsy beauty covers which worried me to begin with but haven't come off at high speed use so probably all fine. Feel like they are well made to me.

and just spotted there's a Heyner set for driver/passenger/rear for £23.

Are the "aero" type not recommended for the rear ? Both Heyner set and Bosch site have "normal" blades for the rear.

Normal wiper for the rear. Presume it's due to different aerodynamics and not being exposed to anything like the forces present from the front.

update:

decided to take a punt on the Heyner set.

Thought at first they were a bit noisy BUT they appear to have bedded in nicely. Drove Kent to Manchester overnight on 3rd/4th October when the weather was particularly bad and they were great.

I'll update this again when I've had them a bit longer.

I’ve used Valeo or Bosch lately. Nothing to complain about and they’re not very expensive either. I replace them once or twice per year, depending how bad they get during the winter.
