    They do look much better.I tried to take my wipers off to paint the corroded bit but the arms are stuck.Sprayed some WD40 on them last night so hopefully they will free up today.

    cnpaterson,I just brought some cheap valeo wipers from a local shop and pulled the rubber out and put them on my wipers.Work fine for now until i get the aero ones.

    I figured if the group buy was going to happen, it would have done by now.

    So I've ordered mine today.

    It was a good idea to do a group buy but Winter is fast approaching.
    They are a 110% improvement

    The blades don't lift at speed. Also the lack of metal work means they don't carpture and then throw splashes everywhere.

    I upgraded a year or so ago with the parts from vagparts. Definately worth it.

    Mine arrived today. I got home a bit early from work, as I had a physio appointment this evening, & just had time to fit them before it got dark. They're working fine, but I'll need to adjust the driver's side one at the weekend. It's sitting a fraction too low, and when I try to lift it, it catches on the other one.

    Five minute fix for when I'm next home in daylight.

    Yeah easy to fit, remove the nut caps, undo the nut to the arm, and then remove the arms, maybe with a bit of gentle persuasion as they can become seized.

    Make sure the wiper arms are alligned up ok and don't hit each other when wiping.

    Also be careful when installing the new arms. Make sure you install the arms with the blades attached because if the arm hits the windshield with nothing attached to it you can break your windshield. Also if your arm is siezed on the bolt then make sure you don't flex the arm back and forth to much because that can put a lot of stress on the base of the windshield and can also crack the windshield.

    Good luck!

    What with everyone on here binning their original arms for the aero kit - maybe someone out there could help me out - I'm look for a rear wiper arm to fit my 2000 A6 avant. Not too bothered about the aero look at the moment and thought with everyone here swapping the factory fit arms for the aero kit (looks nice I must admit!), someone must have a spare wiper arm.

    Local stealer wants 25 + VAT for a new one!

    Anyone help me out here?????

    Regards

    Ok so my aero wiper arms arrived today from vagparts and got some bosch blades to go with them. Took the wiper arms off not problem. Put the new arm on and begin to tighten it up and the shaft snaps on the wiper linkage. so now i've got a temporary single wiper conversion untill i get my new linkage. Bit dodgy but it wipes most of the screen.

    But they do clear the screen better

    Bad luck, mate. Think how good it'll be when they're both working though.

    Oh crap, I received my arms last week, and decided to fit them today. Vagparts have sent me the wrong arms. The arms I got have got a part number starting with 4B, I'm sure they should be 8E?

    You can see the part number stamped on the underside of the arms ie, the side of the arms that face the windscreen.
