Same here too :cool:
The Bosch ones are fab and work incredibly well, but so pricey for what they are. You can buy replacement rubber only for them but it's third party stuff and obviously not genuine Bosch rubber

suppose it depends where you buy them from.

They’re £30 for a pair of fronts at Halfords, so not unreasonably priced IMO.

Paid about £18 including postage for mine, from eBay. I don't think that's unreasonable at all.

Just a heads-up for any 8 owners who may be reading...

The Bosch A864S blades from the Mk.7 fit and work great on the 8.

The rear blade for the Mk.7 - Bosch A282H - doesn't fit.  It's a slightly different fitment and the blade is a little longer than the OEM one.
