Surely no one on here pays Halfords to fit a pair of wiper blades....?
Really?
Genuine GM ones would be my choice as I can still get them quite cheaply at my friendly VX dealer. The next alternative for me is Champion, as they were identical to the GM ones, apart from the GM / Champion stamp near the mounting clip. I do believe Champion made the GM blades at one time.
I have either Champion or genuine VX on my Omegas, and both makes perform well and last. The rubber in cheap and nasty blades grate and chatter on the screen and it annoys the t?ts off me.

As did I when I had my MV6. Sadly, TBE has those stupid sensors, so gets the hopeless aeros.

Well, I had a new set 'fitted' by a fit young fitter @ local Halfords and all seems OK now. She made my day.  :y

Why do rain sensors mean different wipers are needed ?  ???

The Omega ones spot a spec of rain in the air from 500 miles away, so the bloody things are always going on a semi-dry screen.  So the things are shagged in no time :(

in addition, because they are always on and running on semi dry screens, the noise from traditional blades is enough to drive you insane, even before they are worn.
