    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.

    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).

    Yeah works for me anyway, didn't realise they were upside down and wrong way 'round until this thread haha.

    ^^^ that's probably best option, never even thought of Seat when doing mine, great find Alex.
