    Hi everyone,

    I've been a 'reader' on the forum for a little while now but having collected an S3 on Thursday night I thought it time to post!

    I love the car so far - loads of grip, loads of power, stylish, fast - what more could you want? :s3addict:

    There are a few things I've got planned for it, the first of which is the aero rear wiper kit. I know that VAGPARTs sell a complete kit but I was going to get the parts through a stealer (I have a 'mate'). From what I've read it's an 02 reg polo (or thereabouts) rear wiper arm + cover and a touran rear blade, can anyone confirm if that is correct?

    Thanks all...

    fairzy welcome mate

    and yes, its newest shape polo and touran blade....... i found that it was cheaper to buy from stealers at full retial than pay vagparts and P&P..... 2 minutes to fit

    I think the rear cost me £15 ish but that was 4 years ago. The front I got in a group buy but they are just mk4 golf arms with aero blades.

    Cheers for the comments, I was 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 and post some pics too.

    fairzy let us know how u get on, I bought one a while back and wouldnt fit properly on the arm so the blade did not contact properly so went back to original.

    For the fronts i recon just get retrofit blades... think paying for the arms is a waste of money imo
