This was a very timely thread, as I needed to replace my wipers. The OEM kit was never very good in my opinion, so I've bought these and there is a vast improvement.

Thanks very much for the idea.

Michelin £27?

Are they the exact same thing?

Nice sunny day out, thought I'd order these.

Driver's wiper is shocking at the moment, so I'm driving around like Ace Ventura over the passenger side every time it rains.

hmmm - ordered a set of the Honda ones (from Si at Hendy).
The driver's one seems ok (16.5 inch or 42cm) - part No 76630-TM8-013.
The passenger one however is a whopping 25.5inch or 65cm !!!! - not surprisingly - it doesn't fit (overlaps the edge of the screen) - the part No is 76620-SZT-E01

Ninebolts said:
"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."

Anyone any idea where I've gone wrong?
I'll PM Si as well but thought I'd ask the gurus on here as well

I "rain x" my windows every couple of weeks on my daily driver and rarely need to use my wipers on full or high speed.
At normal road speed most rain (not torrential downpour or motorway spray)just bead together and run off the screen. so my blades last for years.

yet to try the honda in the rain but hopefully same will be true.

i don't like being ripped off but anything related to safety - tyres, lights, wipers its worth getting the best (all subjective i know) you can afford.

I have the wipers Ninebolts suggested
LH WIPER BLADE (CRZ 2011-2012) (76630SZTE01)
LH WIPER BLADE (INSIGHT 2010-2012) (76630TM8003)
The drivers side is 17 and passengers is 20 so I can only think the have sent you the wrong blade for the passenger side?
