    Just need a bit of info please from other B5 drivers........
    Bought via Ebay 2 sets of 'Genuine VAG' front wiper blades suitable for the A4 95-99 (they were at a very good price!) and when they arrived this morning they are both straight........
    When I bought the Bosch blades currently on the car as a boxed set the drivers was straight but the nearside was curved?
    Have emailed the seller who has replied that some A4's had 2 straight blades but my copy of Etka seems to re-inforce my belief that my '99 should have 1 straight & 1 curved blade?
    Can I ask what you lot have on your cars as I'm not really happy with the sellers answer and want to get my facts right before I go back to him?

    Thanks

    Paul

    When i bought my car it had 2 straight blades but next pair I got had one curved one (bosch).

    I would just try them and see how they work.

    Thanks for the replies peeps, as the 2 sets delivered cost less than the (single) Bosch set currently on the car will probably keep 'em and use 'em then.......

    Cheers
