And as for getting the squirters pointing where they should. Now there's a thankless job. I think I used half of the water supply to our street!!!!!

4 years of S1 Elise ownership.
GGP shocks, PRT, headlamps, refurbed suspension, 2 'C' services, 1 Lakes meet, 10000 miles, one irresponsible driver in a car-park, an insurance claim and a full re-spray... and windows that go UP & DOWN!

In the last week I've put a Bosch AR26U Aerotwin wiper-blade on my MY2011 Elise RGB. The 26" Bosch-blade is identical in length to the Lotus OEM wiper blade. The AR26U differs from the standard OEM "cantilever-design" blade in that the AR26U doesn't accommodate the curvature of the windscreen at the extreme left and right edges of the sweep; the last 1.5" of the AR26U doesn't touch the glass.
Other than missing the extreme left and right edges of the screen, the sweep is both effective a noise free - with no "chatter" at all.
The design of the Bosch Aerotwin is obviously optimised for essentially flat windscreens as found on many mainstream cars and superminis. The Lotus OEM blade, having the cantilever design, is better suited to maintaining contact with the glass as its curvature changes across the full sweep.
My conclusion: The AR26U cleans very well except at the edges of the screen - and is completely noise free. Would the AR24U do a better job? I won't know until (if) I try one!
