    I bought one from the seller Noel linked to, 40 Euro delivered to the UK. I did mail the seller and ask, but I later noticed that it does say UK shipping for 10 Euro.

    Take the part numbers to TPS and see what they come up with.

    I thought this was a standard arm, its the same as the one i took off, I took the lot off and plugged the hole, looks much cleaner,

    Do you never find yourself with a back window covered in snow or dirt and think to yourself "hmm, it'd be handy if I had something to wipe that off"?
    I agree that wiper-free looks very clean but i'd guess it depends on the driver what kind of balance is peferable when it comes to looks versus practicality. taking off the front wipers would also look good. go on, you know you want to :)

    what you need's a nice series of jets built into the tailgate spoiler that will shoot steam down the back window. I'll add that to my mods list :)

    It's certainly not the standard arm, although some B6's are creeping out the woodwork with them all ready fitted, I'm not sure why that is. Your build thread states:

    ..... I'm not sure you could describe this as massive by any stretch of the imagination. I think they look like they're missing something without a rear wiper, it's a bit like number plates in that without them cars look odd. In my opinion ;)

    Here's some better pics anyway:

    Cheers James :) Anyone know why the rear wipers always sit about 2 degrees lower than they should at rest. Can they be adjusted to rest in line with the bottom of the window?

    Take the wiper off and bolt it back down to the location you want it to be?

    I think mine sits straight? Do as Scott says, although I seem to remember my old one went a bit wobbly as it got older. So to speak.

    Here's some quick pics of it from further back.

    No it used to wipe fine, I only replaced it as the spring broke (see first post). What I mean is, the pivot points wore so it wasn't a nice tight fit anymore, and used to hang down below the horizontal.
