Just checked the PIAA website, and the recommended blades are now shown as 18" and 16".

Anyone fitted these sizes recently? What's the latest thinking in 993 blades? I need to order a set with all the rain we've had today!

Drove from London to Cornwall yesterday in that grim weather

The blades on the 993 have always been crap

However they do these curved ones these days and I imagine they may be a little better, not tried them yet??

Also I recommend use of Rain X on a regular basis

I thought the wiper blades on a 993 are only used once a year - as part of the MOT Whistling

Thought they are just for decoration purposes? Who would drive a 993 in rain? Laughing

Just fitted a set of conventional Bosch blades set 472. 16" & 18".

Almost forgot to remove and transfer the widget from the old blade. Had to retrieve the blade from the bin.

Blades look & work fine.

Thread revival again. I’ve just been on the PIAA website and they don’t give the option for the 993. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to order the above?

Kind regards,

Baz

I need some blades, so I asked PIAA. They said: We do not offer the blades for your model as it requires a curved blade on the passengers side and we no longer have a curved blade range.

I may be out on a limb here but I really don't like Silicon blades or Rain-ex. I have PIAA on the 944 and they smear like hell, horrible to drive at night. Bosche on the 993 and it's fine. I do use rain-ex on the rear screen (no wiper) and I don't use silicon wax on the car just good old Zymol.

I've always been a RainX fan, so fancied giving those wipers a try. But in truth Bosch are fine.

[quote="orangecurry"]I'm not near the car now, but I'm fairly sure the sizes are 18 and 15? That's what IIRC I have from PIAA, and they are excellent Thumb

I bought straight ones, and although there is a very small triangle (bottom right) that is missed, this is out of my field of vision, AND more importantly the majority of the screen is 'flat' and so is IMO best suited to flat blades.

My advice is the same - the PIAAs are still the best real-world driving 'mod' for any car, but you must stick with them as the get better and better as the silicon layer is deposited with use.
