    The whole arm or just the blade?

    IMO there is nothing wrong with the one that comes standard as it totally covers the blade.

    However, I would personally remove it all together and fit a bung - I have done it with my A3 and my S3. IMO the back of the car looks a lot better and more symetrical without the wiper. Doesn't affect my visibility as I wash my car regularly.
