    Evening

    The drivers side wiper on my A3 Sport is missing a bit of the window every time it passes. It's been doing this for a while so I'm guessing it'll need replacing. They are the Aero wipers, so are these only available from a dealer or am I okay replacing them with Bosch Aero ones from Halfords?

    Actually... don't buy both A3 wipers.

    Use the Q7 wiper blade for the driver's side.

    It's a MUCH better fit, and sweeps the tiny little 'shark-fin' area which the original wipers miss at the bottom of the windshield, and the little inswept 'widow's peak'. It's about 2 inches longer than the original wiper.
