If these are the MINI flat style ones, had them since the Dooper. Excellent.

Thats them. Only issue is they 'lift' a bit over the tax disc area.

The difference is amazing and they clear the water so much faster

The wiper is not fully curved so it lifts of from the screen at one at end

Do you have to change the arm to get really low without a block to lock into?

Are they more expensive than the standard ones? And will they fit my ancient mini?

They're brilliant, had them on the clubby for ages before I sold it - even the factory fit new aero wipers don't wipe over the tax disc side, so don't let that put you off them Smile

Just to add, I bought the Bosch ones in the eBay link for 18 quid and installed them today, perfect fit just waiting for it to rain later Very Happy

My mate had the passenger side wiper disintegrate on his R56 Cooper the other day, the whole thing literally just fell apart, so he stopped into Barons earlier to see about changing the wiper arms for the new straight ones. He ended up ordering the new style blades as the Parts guy told him there was only one style of wiper arm to order for his chassis number.

I want the new flat blades, but I really hate the chunky adapters needed to fit over the hooked ends on pre-LCI cars. I had the same thing with my Renault Mégane back in the 6th Form days, the facelift cars had straight arms, so I bought some from a written off model and fitted them to my MY03. Surely when I come to order some, I can just persuade them to order the new arms and blades? I can't see any reason at all why they shouldn't fit, just plug/play like the Mégane?!
