    As above, I'd like to know if its possible to remove rear wiper and retro fit an aero wiper and arm. I know it's possible on the 8l using a polo blade and touran arm. Surely someone must have attempted this mod. Or maybe I should just de-wiper ;-)

    Thanks in advance.

    The 8P2 already has an aero wiper look on the rear wiper? Not sure what you will gain by doing this mod?

    I de wipered mine a few weekends ago. I originally bought the 23mm rubber grommet from halfords however shortly after noticed there is a glass de wiper bung on eBay and now have that fitted. Looks like there was never a wiper there, they're prone to breaking anyway and a pain to get the wiper arm off the motor spindle.

    Someone on here has put a Golf MK5 wiper on their A3. Cant remember who.
    think that is the look your going for?

    I had to replace my arm recently and thought about swapping to a mk5 but I prefer the standard A3 one.

    Still struggling with this one - this is what the std rear wiper looks like;

    It looks like an aero wiper (even though it isn't)!

    Did you use the Gecleant glass wiper bung from Germany? Seriously considering a dewiper tbh.
