Cool Not going Blind believe it or not...

I was out at a friend's of mine the other day and he jus acquired a 01 S80 2.9 NON-TURBO.

We were looking at the windsheild wipers and noticed the passenger side wiper..had quite a curve in it....

My 01 S80 when I got it had just straight wiper blades on it....

Is there something wrong with the blade being curved or is that what came on the car Originally...thanks for your Help and keep the sny remarks to a minimum pls..LOL

they may have been replaced with contour aftermarket wipers which are made by quite a few companies now, and are much more efficient than standard wiper blades.

some contour blades are

Bosch Icon
Rain-X Lattitude
ANCO contour

I have the Bosch Icon ( i think the name is) countour curved blades for the car.. I'm not sure if they justify the cost but they do a hell of a job and work better at higher speeds..

If you have to purchase these top of the line blades, I would recommend the Michelin Optimum blades.. I use them on my cars in Trinidad and they are top quality.. plus if your lucky you can get them at wa*mart for much cheaper than any of the dedicated auto stores..
The Bosch is also top quality if you want to go that route..

i have had Bosch icon's on my s80 for 2 years now, and they are just starting to show signs of wear. Best 40 dollars i have ever spent on my car. would recommend these blades to anyone. plan on buying new ones once i know that there is no more snow coming.
