    Do the wipers need new arms as well? Are these included in the kit?

    One of my wiper arms is corroding and looks awful, if new arms are included it might bea good time to swap over to the newer wipers.

    yes they include new arms cos the new blades wont fit on old arms,

    the blades are redesigned and dont use the metal part like the old style, i think the whole idea is to work better with the curveture of the windscreen and reduce smearing and clear the screen quicker

    What about the spray jets? Can you fit the later style ones where they "mist" the screen rather than the ones where you just get a stream in one area?
