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.
