Has anybody got any experience of fitting the PIAA wiper blade to the Exige?
I’ve ordered a 24" blade but it does not fit to the shape of the windscreen very well. Do I need a “curved” blade, looking at the PIAA website the maximum size you can buy is 22" ?
Yep, I’ve tried them on an S1 before and they work very well, they just don’t sit flush to the screen at the extreme ends of travel.

Does that make sense? How can they clear the glass if they don’t touch it…
Yep it does. It’s just when the wiper is at rest that the final few mm furthest from the spindle aren’t in contact with the screen, pretty much as soon as it moves it is able to sweep the full area.
Maybe the solution to anyone wanting to keep the curved carrier could be to just buy the replacement 24" blade (which doesn’t come with a carrier) and fit that.
Thats my plan I think, order the refill and fit it to the original blade.
