    I have mk4 aeros on my s3 and I have to tweak the passenger side blade to touch the more curvy s3 screen. But they work fine now.

    Leon screenis same as S3 btw

    but they still have the height of standard wipers, wereas proper aero wipers are half the height and are less intrusive visibly

    ian the only main difference i found was that they seem to operate better at higher speeds giving a better downforce on the windscreen.and i think they look better,get the ebay jobbys save your money probably work as well as the £90 oe ones

    I have heard horror stories about over tightening the bolts when replacing the arms on the front and snapping the spindle they bolt on to. Is they anyway of judging how tight they should be without a torque wrench?
