    Aero wipers, which ones

    I have had fitted the aero blades to my standard front wiper arms.... although seem to remember seeing someones car off here with different arms...also the back arm was different and seemed more 'slick' than the standard one..... i presume they are standard 8P arms used but need confirmation, also, is the rear a complete replace due to the fact that the water jet is integrated?

    I remember reading somewhere that there are some issues with the wipers not making full contact with the windscreen when you fit the arms. I am sure it was only certain types of arms, but Vagparts are very helpful and might be worth calling about this

    I have Valeo Silencio X.TRM or something on mine. Think they were around 25 for the front set.

    Seem to work ok, can't say the are really and different to standard ones. I only bought flat blade ones as they looked funky and my old ones needed replacing.

    cheers Scott...... i think some people are getting mixed up with what im after....i have the aero blades.... they just look **** with standard wiper arms IMO.....stand up too much.....

    Scott are these direct fits for an 8P...... was thinking i might aswel go for a breaker jobby.... nobody ever wants wipers .... not averse to paying 88 just think 50 saved is better in my pocket than the next

    for the rear try a 02 polo arm with a touran blade, never a better combo....

    always gets a giggle when i go to the VW dealer and order front blades for a polo, a rear blade for a touran for my S3!

    I was just about to place an order with the stealer when I found these on ebay for a bargin price of 6.50 inc. delivery, so thought I'd give it a bash first.

    My car is off being serviced / checked over for the next few days, so I'll report back soon.

    I'll get some pics sorted too.
