    I bought a set Last month and so far no problems . Plus you can replace the rubbers when they wear out

    I had a look at a VF at work and the wipers look the same as VE.
    So I`ll find out and mybe save VF owners some money aswell.

    Prices have been updated 13-10-2016. on the front page.

    And VF are the same as VE

    I`m not going to post this in the VF section as I asked for help for part numbers and nobody helped and nobody seems to want to save money.

    The VF model will eventually become more increasingly a second hand vehicle and then I'm sure the VF owners will be interested much like myself when I do upgrade the VE.

    I'll give this a go me thinks!

    I've been waiting for sales on these $70 OEM wipers, and I can't for the life of me figure out why I'm prepared to pay so much money!

    Thanks VS Pete. Is the dealer the only place to get these from?

    My thoughts on them.
    I have none.
    All you can do is try them.
    The seller has good feed back.

    Thanks Pete! Went to the local dealer today, had the drivers side in stock, but had to order the passenger side.
    I'll pick them up tomorrow arvo.
    Great savings!

    I've just been buying wipers from Repco when they have their weekend sales which are sometimes 60% off wipers.
    What model are these AC Delco blade actually intended to be fitted to? Seems strange they keep these in the background and sell you the $50 version instead unless you know which part number to order..

    They're for VE's, and its called 'profiteering'. A lesson learnt from the oil industry...

    I just smiled at him!
