haha damn.

A few years ago they were $16 on ECS tuning (LHD versions, you just break a clip) and I bought 2 sets. When I ordered more things a years later I checked again and they went up to $54USD. I wish I bought a heap more back then

Do you notice much difference with the 'You Beaut' Bosch Aerotwin blades or is it all just marketing BS?

These are the correct ones I gather:

Robbed?
You were raped.
Don't have a shower so the rape kit is effective.
Call the cops and ask for the SVU immediately.

I was quoted $200 to replace my wiper blades. You guys got it good

I just stared at the guy was like "No... Just no..."

Ended up buying $11 OE BMW ones from ECS.

I once had a light bulb blown one side only and had warranty and thought maybe try my luck at the dealer as I was passing by to see whether they will change it for free. 1 minute later was quoted $120 for just replacing the bulb! I said no and drove 5 mins to supercheap auto and paid $40 for a pair and fixed it myself.

Yes you got RAPED!!! not ROBBED!

Anyone know how to make the lhd blades work? I bought a set and they are sitting here. I assumed they were useless.

All you need to do is have a sharp stanley knife and slice off one small piece of plastic. I did it about 3 years ago so can't remember the specifics.

Got these from eBay last year: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/170923208...84.m1423.l2648

They are RHD so no need to cut anything.

I bought lhd from turner.
I pulled at the tab where the arm fit into the blade really hard and they popped out. Then rotated them 180 degrees and clipped them back in facing the other way. Presto! It worked.
