    Personally I would just go to Audi and get some originals - they may cost a couple of pounds more but I think it's always better to have an Audi receipt in the folder rather than a Halfords one for example!! I did mine the other week and worth doing!

    stick to the OEM Audi ones, can get them on ebay from dealers about £30 so not massive increase on halfords ones

    I went the Halfrauds way with mine and have to say i can only fault them on one thing, but it is getting to be really annoying. When the wipers are at the top and changing over to come back down they make quite a loud noise, its when the rubber turns to start its down sweep. Not sure if it can be sorted. Go oem

    Bought the bosch ones today in one of the motor factors, 22 euro I paid, will install them in a while and tell u what they're like. Im sure they will be better than my current ones as a bit of them actually fell off ha ha. Thanks for the quick answer though ;)

    i gave audi a chssis number from an 04 model and got some aero wipers at cost because of my work. 25 quid for each arm and 11 quid each for the blades. its the best move i ever made as far as wipers go.

    Will the 04 model arms & blades fit a B6 2001, if so do you have the part numbers of the arms & blades as I want to change mine.

    anyone got pic of aero wipers fitted?

    As for cleaning, use rainx! works a treat for cleaning as well as its original purpose.
