What did you pay for these delivered if you don’t mind me asking?

Sorry didn't keep details but current price less discount is about right I think. Can get them cheaper elsewhere but delivery service and speed was of value to me.

I’m sure my local motor factors got them from Andrew Page as they do stock Bosch wipers.

Old thread, but thought I'd add my observations.
On the back of the recommendations, I bought two sets of Bosch aero twins from Wiperblades.co.uk when they had a 15% off offer at around £20 per full front set. I fit the first set in March to replace the original manufacturer blades.
Anyway, the first set of blades were better than the worn out original pair which had 18 months of use. However they were not as good as the original pair when they were new. I noticed it was a bit juddery and squeeked a bit, after about 4 months of usage they got very smeary to the point i have now installed the second pair of wipers.
This second pair was squeeky too from new, so I'm not too impressed...

I had also bought a set of aerotwins for my other car (a Mini), and have found that those squeeky and smear too and the outer reach of the wipers didn't even touch the windscreen, so being generic wipers, I guess they are not shaped exactly for the windscreen unlike original manufacturer ones.

Now I'm looking for a source of manufacturer replacements for my L494 Sept 2016 (MY16?) RRS...

I'm guessing this is the right part number?? From ebay:-

£35.99 - RANGE ROVER SPORT 2014 ON OEM WINDSCREEN WIPER BLADES - LR033023G / LR076848G

Otherwise I'm guessing it's about £50 to get dealers to do it at next service?

Could it be that you build up silicon wax residu on your windows? that would explain why your OEM set performed better, when your car was new at that time.
Silicon on your window screen -often a result from wash and shine products and /or automatic car washes- are detrimental to a clear view when the rain starts. It effects the performance of your wipers as well.
I never had a problem with Bosh Aero wipers. An excellent product, particularly at high speeds.

Try these which I think are the ones I fitted to a 2014 L494. They are one piece and simply slide and click onto arms.

Bosch Wiper Blade (Retrofit Flat Wiper Blade Single Ar20U) (Left)Product Code: 485778200

https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Land+Ro...amp;000604

Bosch Wiper Blade (Retrofit Flat Wiper Blade Single Ar24U) (Right)Product Code: 485778240

https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Land+Ro...amp;000604

PS don't know if they fit earlier RRS models - longer than the ones you are looking at. From the pics of those I guess the extra bits will be to fit different wiper arms and you will need to select the right one for your vehicle.
