    Yes, I believe the arms are different length, the blades certainly are.

    I bought my all inclusive kit (arms, blades, replacement nuts, nut caps) from Teeside Audi, great service. They do it as a complete kit and it includes everything you'll need to be replaced for £143.38.

    I love mine, so much better than the non-aero version.

    Audi S4 quattro in Dolphin Grey Metallic, Silver leather, carbon inlays, RNS-E, 6 speed manual, electrically adjustable & heated seats, xenon headlights with power wash, cruise control, storage pack, 18" OEM RS4 wheels, RS4 ARB, LED lighting upgrade, FASH plus every bill since new.

    Yep you are indeed, unless you find an Audi being broken down. I purchased my set from this seller on Ebay, never had any issues and the postage was really quick!

    Might be worthwhile pricing it up from Audi as it may be cheaper from them..

    A little heads up on aero wipers

    I'm lucky and already have the arm's fitted, but just recently bought some new blades for £20.45 each from the dealership. The part number's you'll need are:

    8E2 955 408 C
    8E2 955 407 C
    4B2 955 425 C <-- two of these (blades)

    A note of caution - when I got mine, the blades came as a pair in one box - I've kept the reference , its 4B2 998 002 - they are handed (each blade came in its own pack, and was marked for NS / OS). I got them mixed up and wasn't impressed until I switched them round onto the correct sides. Just saying - maybe the 4B2 955 425 C's are more forgiving?

    Mine are American (same as German) and work fine, think of the logistics it's similar but the other way 'round, mine may 1 cm higher (not that I've noticed) but commenting blade/wiper on size is ridiculous as the window is the same size so why on earth would other countries have bigger/smaller wiper's.

    Here is the representation of Jake (left) vs zee Germans (right).

    Will any Exeo have the correct Areo arms?
