I got the Denso ones, also from Amazon UK. They fitted perfectly and a lot cheaper than my local dealership.

Not sure why they are so expensive for wiper blades, and being a consumable item used for safe driving they need frequent replacing and should be cheaper IMHO.

Back in February whilst in my local Wilko's store, I picked up a pair of their generic windscreen wiper blades for £4.50 each (total £9). I got so fed up with my Bosch Aerotwins leaving streaks and smudges on my windscreen, I thought I'd buy them as a temporary measure. Three months later and I'm still using them! The Bosch blades have a single flexible plastic spine on them. The Wilko's ones have an articulated plastic box-section type spine, which seems to hug the windscreen much more efficiently. I won't be spending out on Bosch any more.

Just bought a set of these, first impressions are they are excellent and a bargain, great easy fit and clear well, old ones just getting smeary at 18500 miles and 3.5 years.

Good offers on Denso wiper blades at the moment which are identical to the originals. I ordered driver and passenger blades from car parts for less last Friday and they were delivered Monday all for just over £17.

Review of the VIPA blades from eBay after a few weeks, they will have to be replaced, as much as I try by degreasing and cleaning the screen the blades are so noisy. They just seem to flop backwards and forwards with each stoke and the noise has got horrendous, shame I threw my usable old ones away. They look the part but for £8.99 a pair delivered you get what you pay for I suppose.

Bosch aerotwin here for me still - first thing I replaced on the Vitara when we got it - amazed how people put up with crap wipers!

I tend to wait till I can get them on offer and get them - got the fronts for £16 with a code from euro car parts.

Might do the rear shortly too, it's ok but a started to go a bit dodgy.

Waiting for the weather to stop for day on the weekend too so I can treat all the door and sunroof rubbers also.

I just replaced my Bosch aerotwin after 2 months, so noisy/juddering and not clearing screen in places.

My Denso blades were the same as that, juddering and jumping on the passenger side and smearing on the drivers side so I took them apart and reversed the blades. Its a bit fiddly to get them back in but once you work it out its not difficult.

I've got a pair of the VIPA blades as a replacement, and if they are any good I'll get another set.

The Vitara does seem a bit sensitive to wiper blades, I could chuck anything on my old Rav4 and they would just work like they should.

Having fitted 2 sets of Densos on Vitaras as well as 2 sets on SX4's that have similar small/large wipers (and various Jimny's/Ignis/Grand Vitara) I have had no issues at all. Not sure if your wipers are marked with a part number but there are left and right handed wipers available for lhd and rhd specs
