2006 335d SE Coupe - Replacement Wipers

Hi guys,

Quick question, I'm looking to change my wiper blades before the winter starts in earnest and was just wondering what the most popular choice was on the forum?

Driving a 56 plate 335d SE Coupe.

Thanks,

Hugh

Go to BMW.

When I last changed mine I had problems getting the correct ones.

Bosch listed 3 different sets none of which fitted.

The local factors were 40 for Bosch and genuine BMW wipers were 33 or 34.

The aero wipers are expensive everywhere.

Yes they're expensive generally but the dealer is definitely your best bet.

Valeo aftermarket every time, perfect fit, last well. I'm paying around 23 per set.

If there is nothing wrong with your wipers, dont worry about them. If you find there is something wrong with them in a couple of months, BMW will do next day delivery.

I bought mine from my local dealership. I did try Bosch Aerotwins but the passenger side one was slightly too long. The OEM BMW wipers fitted fine though and were cheaper too!

Bout time I changed them, they have been on there since I bought the car almost 3 years ago, and are starting to squeak / streak when I use them now.

Think I will go for genuine BMW.

Thanks for your help guys.
