    I have just received the wipertech set to replace Bosch. Haven't had to try them out in the rain yet so can't comment on that side.
    What I have noticed is that the wipertech ones are more in line with the OEM set, the Bosch ones were a bit "chunky" on the connection to the wiper arms.
    Wipertech were very customer focus on their ordering process, heaps of email updated for tracking and a personal email thanking for my purchase. I really appreciate customer service. Blades came packaged very professionally.
    Wipertech were priced cheaper than Bosch, this is not so much an issue for me as I will pay for the better quality units over the others.
    Bosch were a real pain trying to find sizes, there were no "pairs" available anywhere and I had to buy the left and right sides separately by searching 4 different auto part stores.

    My T-Roc has a ceramic coat on the windscreen, the original VW ones were ok on a few single wipes but would start to skip in heavy rain. They were still affective in clearing the water away but annoying with the skipping sound.
    Replaced the OEM ones after 12 months with Bosch. Initially the Bosch were good but started the skipping also after a couple of months.
    Now trying Wipertech to see if they are any better.
    I keep both the glass and rubber clean all the time and apply a rubber conditioner to the blades, so wear or deterioration is not really the problem.
    Strange as the other vehicle (Audi) has the same windscreen treatment and it's OEM wipers work great. If wipertech turn out just like the others then I may place some Audi OEM ones on and see.

    Went to Costco and they sell the 'Michelin Hydroedge Wiperblade' for $15.99 each (fronts only, no rears)
    (Michelin Lifestyle)

    Called VW Spare Parts. They quoted Front Set $80 and Rear $25
