These arrived on Friday:



I ordered them from ebay but it must have been Heyner's own shop as the sender's address was Heyner UK.

Anyway, they come with a load of adaptors for fitting to different vehicles and the plastic cover over the blade, as someone else mentioned. This picture shows the new blade next to one of the old ones. They are actually about 1-inch longer than the Bosch ones.



One fitted to the car to show comparison.


View from inside showing the profile of the Bosch blade.


New blade fitted. Sits a little higher but it's not much of an increase.


Both installed.


Overall, I'm quite happy with them. The adaptors are easy to install. I like how there isn't a sort of cap at either end of the wiper blade, which helps to give it a lower profile. They seem very quiet and wipe well. I'm not fitting the rear one for now as the original isn't that old and is wiping fine. Will keep it for when the rear degrades.

Heyner wiper blades

Thanks for the detailed write up and photos. Like you say, adapter looks slightly bigger, but blades look slimmer and one of the first things I noticed was the lack of ‘cap’ on the ends of the blades...

Think they’ll get a great try out this week with rain forecast - be interested in how they perform

It’s my wife’s car so she’ll probably not even notice the difference!

It was only that I drove it last week and saw how bad the Bosch were getting. I had planned on changing them just before the winter but decided they couldn’t wait. I’ll post an update again in a few weeks.

I had the silicone ones on old Almera GTi and it put loads of tiny scratches all over the glass, have their rubbers hybrid ones on my 350z and they've been great.

I've had Heyner wipes on my van for the last four years and been very happy. Just fitted a pair to my Mk5 Astra and apart from them looking a little bulkier on the fitting they are working a treat.
