Look lovely, where did you get them from?
mail order from Rowes Honda (they happen to have an online store and had them in stock but any dealer would get these in a day)

LH WIPER BLADE (CRZ 2011-2012) (76630SZTE01)
LH WIPER BLADE (INSIGHT 2010-2012) (76630TM8003)
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 ?

Correct they are both passenger side oem blades, one from the CRZ and the other an Insight.

S2000 OEM sizes are driver 16" and passenger 20".
The blades I've listed are 17" and 20", the extra inch on the drivers side is nothing to worry about, lots of people fit 18" or longer on the driver side.

The blades used by Honda are from a Japanese manufacturer I think it's NWB, you can find it stamped on the oem blades. These are a different style of blade but still from the same manufacturer. NWB only have European distributors in Holland and Greece, so it's easier to buy them from a Honda dealer.

For what its worth I've always used PIAA blades; all the other ones I've used end up squeaking whereas the PIAA ones never do. It's now the first thing I do when I buy a car is put some PIAA blades on. Not cheap but then I've never had to replace them.

I've order a set of these today and I'll pick them up Tuesday. Guess it doesn't matter which way round they go?

I bought some cheap "Autoexpress award winning" ones in the spring
They are rubbish in the rain
I think I'll try a set of these

These wipers are very easy to fit and look much better overall
Plus they work much better than my Bosch aeros which is the main thing.
