    Nah correct size, if i remember correctly it was common, new blades may not do this now but when these first started appearing the passenger side wiper would sit just off the screen in the corner so when you wiped the wiper didnt clear at the end of the blade for the first bit but as the blade comes up it makes contact with the screen. I got my aerowipers from wiperblades.co.uk but when they needed replacing i got the aero kit from vagparts (before it closed). I think the aero kit is a worth while upgrade, it was about £60 iirc, but would recomend the above mentioned replacement aero wipers over standard wipers if you'd rather not spend a little bit more on the upgrade.
