Default Windscreen Wiper replacements

What is a good windscreen wiper at a reasonable price, and where do you buy them.
Put in refills but they did not last, Repco/Supercheap brands I would say are less than average.

I've tried wipers from eBay without a lot of success, they were ok but nothing special. Recently I went to Repco and found a set which were normally around $50 but they had them on sale for about half price. I can't remember the brand but they have a wind deflector built in to the shape of that helps. They have been great so far, very quiet and don't leave any streaks.

Trico Ultra are a direct replacement fit, and I have them on my NW. They work and fit same as OEM. Buy the complete assembly and it is a 1 minute changeover.

I changed the whole blades on my NS to the Tridon Curveblade and have found them much better that the originals. Bit more expensive than refills but I was happy. From Supercheap.

funnily enough i got complete replacements from Costco (Michelin brand) and they are great! I think from memory they were $12-15. I was a little skeptical but had them on for a few months now and seem to be all ok.

Default Windscreen Wiper replacements

I’ve had only good experiences with www.wipertech.com.au - bought them for multiple cars including Paj. Saves a trip to auto store only to have 20 options in front of you. You just whack in the car details and it gives you 1-2 options, the second option being the rear wiper if applicable (eg my Falcon only has the one option).They’re an Aussie firm based on Brunswick VIC and fairly regularly send out 10-20% off vouchers via email. Wipers are good quality. Customer service is excellent. No affiliation apart from a satisfied customer.
