    Smile New Wipers

    Well yesterday I installed my new PIAA wipers. I had a party while I threw out my old ones. A word to the wise: do not waste your money on those stupid double wiper jobs.... THEY SUCK!!! THey only trap the dirt and water between them and the "chrome" or the "anodization" wears off and they turn yucky colours. It is beautiful weather here in my area, but even so, I wish it would rain now!!! I really like the look of these new wipers, they are really slim and you barely even notice them on the car. the other thing is they say PIAA on them on the front, I think that will be good for at least 5HP:lol I will keep you all posted on how they work. Supposedly they are supposed to be the BEST!!!

    My buddy has been using the PIAA wipers for over a year now and he's the guy that told me that they are DA BOMB. They are expensive ($40 CDN for one!! I get special deal though cause I'm a dealer) but I think it is worth it for something like this which has to do with safety

    I just have the single tip ANCO's. They are ok for $8 a piece but could have better ones.

    i only use Bosch wipers. PIAA is too rich for my blood.
    you can always spray your winshield with water to test them.

    I know Honda uses Bosch for all their cars stock... and they also work very well. Just thought I would try these out as they were really highly recommended to me....and they should be for the $$$ My windshield is really pitted from all of the years this car has been on the road and hence it is a pain when it rains...it looks really bad with all of the wipers I've tried so far. Besides the PIAA name alone adds 5HP...right? :lol
