Windscreen wipers are made of rubber and do deteriorate over time. They sit in the weather, they get dirty, they have to skip over bugs and debris on your windscreen when you use them- it’s a pretty tough life.
When you wash your car pay, attention to the windscreens and make sure they are clean, use some glass cleaner and a microfibre cloth to get the last of any residue off. Doing this will prolong the life of your wipers and ensure you can see where you are going even when it’s not raining.
Topping up your windscreen washer bottle and adding washer additive regularly will also help keep your windscreens clean on the outside. If your wipers need replacing, contact the team and we can do this while you wait.
When a car is designed the manufacturer takes great care to ensure that every part functions in harmony with the rest of the car to make sure that the car complies to all necessary regulations and operates as it should. The same goes for parts and accessories. All genuine parts and accessories go through a rigorous testing process to ensure that they fit and work correctly on your car.
You may be able to find a cheaper roof rack, for example, but will the wind noise be unbearable? Will it overload the roof of your car? Will it be safe? Only genuine parts and accessories can fit exactly to your car with no compromise as well as increasing your resale value.
