Default Something for the current weather

New wipers but not the standard factory fit or the Bosch/Valeo/Halfords retro fit aero types these are OEM aero blades from Honda/NWB

Just to say thanks for this - saw this and ordered a pair. Arrived 2 working days and once fitted the difference between a 20 quid pair of cheap aero blades and these at £10 more delivered is night and day. No flex, no wobbling, neat and compact and they just look so much better on the arms.



Ingenious flush catch.

I'm no expert in wiper technology and I've not tried any other brands, comparing them to the tired originals is pointless but I'm very happy with how they work in the rain. Im not going to gush on about them but they were excellent in a heavy downpouring on the M1 a couple of weeks back.

It's how they look when parked that i care more about - those cheap chunky aero things might work well but they ruin the look of the car - these are completely unobtrusive.

Does LH stand for left hand? I think I understand that these are two blades for two different HONDAs that when put together will fit the S2000 ?
