    Do a search up in the right hand side of the homepage, but you'll find most go with VAG original ones ( Valeo ) I think. I tried Bosch but they screech like a scolded hyena!!

    I've got Bosch, and with a periodic squirt of silicon spray (which also acts as a rain repellent when transferred to the screen by the wiper action) they stay smooth and quiet.

    I bought genuine Audi wipers for mine, but they're not quiet. I've slapped Michelin ones on my golf mark 5 and I can hardly hear those. Any suggestions ?

    I know its not the same but i have Goodyear flat blades from Costco on my corsa £7 each which i think is pretty Good and just as good as the Bosch ones in my opinion, but hey thats just on a corsa and not an audi

    another option to aid clearing the windscreen would be a long term rain repellant, as a keen amateur detailer i can vouch for GTechniq G1 or G5 and Carpro flyby 30.
    ive got G1 on my windscreen and it does a pretty darn good job

    Always OEM for me, for some reason everything else I've tried is noisy.

    When you guys order from audi, do you get the complete wiper or just the rubber blade pack?

    prefer genuine audi blades, bosh aero twin just does not seem as good.
    Also give your windscreen a good clean and polish, do the same to the new wiper blade when fitting.

    I have also found vinegar then cleaner and polish on existing blades gets a bit more life when you have the streaking or smearing as does seem to help but ultimately they get replaced at some point when it crops up after a while.

    I have Bosch and they're completely silent. I do try and keep the windscreen and wipers as clean as possible so that might help.

    I upgraded from standard (pre 2004) to post 2004 aero and purchased the whole kit from Audi UK.

    They work so mach better the nnon aero and I wouldn;t put anything on other than OEM blades as I have expereinced the Bosch screeching before.

    I could dig out the part numbers if anyone needs them?

    Way back in the day, I used to just get the rubbers - can you still do that with aero blades though? As to genuine / oem or others, I've just bought a replacement set (pair) of "genuine Audi" - which are, I understand, made by Bosch - - they're fine, and quiet. They are handed though and if you get them mixed up on fitting, they're disappointing! Mike.
