Update for anyone who’s interested - managed to get a look at the wipers today and there were about 3 definite lines appearing on the windscreen as the wiper did it’s return sweep. Couldn’t really see anything wrong with the wiper itself so I gave the blades a clean and cleaned the glass too. Seems to have done the trick, no more lines.

It’s chucking it down now here so I’ll ask the wife tomorrow if it’s properly sorted.

I bought a set (front and back) of Heyner Hybrid blades for my wife's car a few weeks ago and below are my thoughts and feedback:

Pros:

1.) Price. I purchased a full set of wipers for £22.97 (front and back), cheaper than a full set of Bosch Aerotwins.
2.) Performance. The blades work well, no smearing, no juddering
3.) Rear wiper blade required no additional clip/adapter

Cons:

1.) This is a minor con: The front wipers have a universal clip which then require a suitable clip for your model of car. I'm not a fan of the clip design, here a video on how to fit the clip for a VAG model wiper arm: 2.) Another minor con: Universal adapter/missing adapter. When I purchased the wipers for the right model car, the wipers were missing the correct adapter so I was unable to fit the wipers to the car. I contacted Heyner and they were responsive and mailed the correct adapter using 1st Class mail. The Bosch Aerotwins that I usually buy, require no additional clips/adapters and fit just like OEM wipers.

Would I buy them again? I might, depending on longevity.
