Anyone have advice about which are the best wipers to buy for my Leaf 30?

I read that these cars only need to refill the rubber as is done in Japan but Amazon have poor reviews on the cheaper refills.

Is it better to buy a new set of Bosch?

Not sure about the 30 but I got my 40 wipers from the dealer, they are very odd shaped units.

Looking at them they were part of the wind tunnel design of the car, I didn’t fancy putting different shaped aftermarket units on instead and they were not particularly expensive.

I don’t know whether they sell them for the Leaf, but I found Vipa branded wipers from Amazon really good on my last Golfs.

I’d say they’re up there with Bosch.

The wipers on the leaf are a replaceable blade system, you do not need to replace the plastic parts, just the rubber.

I looked at Bosch but instead just bought and fitted the genuine Nissan left, right and rear wipers from Glyn Hopkins online store:

NISSAN LEAF (ZE0E/ZE1E) BLADE ASSY-WINDSHIELD WIPER RH: Nissan LEAF (ZE0E/ZE1E) Blade Assy-Windshield Wiper RH | Official Nissan Store

NISSAN LEAF (ZE0E) BLADE ASSY-WINDSHIELD WIPER LH: Nissan LEAF (ZE0E) Blade Assy-Windshield Wiper LH | Official Nissan Store

They are a direct placement from factory fitted and have identical same aerodynamic plastic covers, looks the part and zero noise or streaking.
