Hi all,
I have few questions regarding the wiper blade:
1.How often do you change wiper blade?
2. Change it by own or whokshop?
3. Change driver side only or both sides?
4. How much roughly?

2. Change at shop in the industrial park that sells car's spare parts.
3. Change both side.
4. I just changed the wiper last Sat at $38 for both sides

The normal blue-box NWB, now renamed to Denso (dark blue box), sold at most petrol stations iirc Esso, SPC, Caltex carry them:

I use these, since they are as close to OE replacement, one long one short price about 17 + 12 = 29
easily can use about 3-4years (daily about 120km, whole day hot sun, no shelter no mscp)

when washing car time take a damp cloth run the length of the rubber blade part that touches the glass--this brings them back to quite good condition

Mine I have been using for 3 years already. So far still no problems. I think its because I rarely use the wipers. I claybar the windscreen every week so rain droplets just fly off when driving at higher speeds. I am using those frameless wipers from giant. I think was 15+ each.

I used to get these changed half-yearly at around S$35 during servicing at BM. Then my friend recommended one brand to me (can't rem name) which cost S$90 and I've been using it for the past 3 years. So far, it's been working well for the past few rainy days.

I think NWB/Density is better than Bosch. And its cheaper too.

This I agree. I wipe the wipers til they not so blackish.

They then become like new even parked under hot sun n not lifted fr windscreen. Almost 1.5 yrs n ok. N I don't activate them as often, unless heavy downpour, since the wax on my car would cause windscreen water to bead.

My previous workhorse driven for 8 years... and i changed the wiper only once...

 

So average is about 4 years?

 

I washed car almost weekly... and clay my windscreen monthly.. it does help to maintain smoothness...

 

In my wiper reservoir, I did put some windscreen solution...
