    Haven't got part numbers to hand but it's a polo arm and it is actually better to use a VW Touran wiper blade as they are slightly longer but have same fitment

    I bought this one from eBay, plus a set of fronts from this guy, and they have been great for 3 months now. Much better than the halfrauds ones that were fitted previously...

    Cheers,
    These are ok if all you want is functionality, but IMHO with the old wiper arm they look a bit crap

    When I worked for VW the amount of people that bought new Golfs etc with Aero blades then re-fitted the older style ones was unbeliveable

    Im not a fan of the aeroblades, they never seemed to clean the screen well and the blade life was almost laughable. The principle behind them is good but doesnt seem to work out in practise! The flexibitly of them means that they dont push on the screen as hard as they should, often resulting in excessive streaking.

    Looks cool without the rear wiper, but I know how dirty the back of my car gets and I like being able to see whats behind me clearly!

    nice to see you b againb dooood!!

    Gotta disagree, ive got aero's albeit original OEM ones, they are absolutely brilliant, no judder like the older ones...

    the rear wiper is from the later Polo and the blade is from a Touran, a wee bit bigger than the polo item...you also need the plastic cap when ordering
