Just checked my wipers and my passenger side has popped up in the middle so I need 2 new blades..

Anybody got any idea where to buy them from rather than the HPCs?

Cheers!

I don't know where to get them from but mine are streaking already after just two months. Pretty poor show really. Are they crap quality or what?.

Only concern is the picture doesnt look like ours, so I hope it just means that's a generic picture.

Unfortunately I need one for Friday as I'm driving down to Millbrook....

Holy hell that is terrible!!!

I just ordered a GTR branded indoor car cover from the US, worked out around £185. Gotta be better than a plain one for £195!

I used to use the PIAA silicon wipers on my 350z's which were superb. Used to get them from one of the traders on nissansportz ( big phil)

wonder if they do a GT-R fit?

I 've never really used my wipers with rain-x. Drove in some really crappy whether n all. Must prolong blade life ten fold.

Does work best at speed though. Infact the faster you go, the clearer it becomes, which hasnt really been a problem with this car for some reason.

Apply it to all my vehicles. Absolute godsend on the works van, which can do 1000 miles a week.

RainX doesn't work so well when you do use your wipers though, does it?
The key is regular re-application, works van applied once weekly. Cars dependant on what weather has been like. Usually re-apply minimum one month intervals.

Any news on when a set will be available for the R35?

I've used PIAA wipers on Scoobs for years and never had a problem.

I'm already getting lines with the standard pair on the R35...

I have a two week old car, and the wipers smear like a two year old. They can't be worn out, and hence must just be crap from new. I do not see the point in replacing them with more standard Nissan blades, and would be very interested in any better aftermarket items.
