My 1998 A3 1.8T Sport came with crappy old school wipers that don't really wipe the windows and make a funny noise. Until now, if i wanted fancy areo wipers, i thought the only option was to swap to the arms and aero wipers from late spec S3's/Golfs/TT's etc. This upgrade is about £60 and a bit steep just for wiper blades! Anyhoo, i've found this company: http://www.wiperblades.co.uk And they sell Valeo Aero Wiper blades that fit the 8L A3 old type wiper arms! Now the tricky part is that you have to search the website by car and these aren't listed for the A3! Don't panic, we share our windscreen with the SEAT Leon and these are listed for that! So, select SEAT, then Leon, then Year 2000. The blades you want are: Valeo - UM621 Silencio X.TRM Aftermarket FLAT WIPER BLADE UPGRADE 18" and Valeo - UM661 Silencio X.TRM Aftermarket FLAT WIPER BLADE UPGRADE 21" The end result? What do you think, not bad for £22?
