    Can you fit the retrofit flat blades? Or do you need the metal arm ones?

    If you want the flat blade style you will need the arms & blades from a B7 A4 :icon_thumright:

    How do I tell which ones I have? I thought there were two different styles fitted to B6's.

    I have a 2004 and here is a pic of the engine bay / wipers

    I'm hoping I have the newer style as it gives more options for blades.

    Best upgrade you'll ever make, which will pay for itself in a few years if you keep the car. Mike.

    They work much better. They don't judder. The blades are cheaper and more readily available.
