    LOL I missed this thread (as I'm mainly the A4/S4 thread now).
    I had a PFL S3 (2014), got the A6 mist jets which worked a treat. Took them out before part exchanging my S3 and stuck them on my S4 (similar age) with no problem at all, except the mist possibly doesn't go out far enough but it cleans the windows fine so I'm not fussed :)

    Very worthwhile upgrade for sure, I hated the 3 jet spray.

    Part numbers I got:
    4G0955987A left
    4G0955988A right

    £11 each from Cardiff Audi on eBay in Oct '18

    For example, the link you sent, the first sentence of the description is “Premium spary nozzle with xukey quality”

    Also as rafletcher pointed out, the item pics show 3 jet nozzles rather than the mist.

    Ali is great but for the small difference in price it’s not worth the wait or hassle if they are wrong.

    so whilst changing my washers to fan instead of jet I managed to break the clip for the hose . looking for a replacement and all i can find is a pair of used ones on ebay for £7 plus , does anyone have a link to the correct part no and hopefully a cheaper replacement for a piece of plastic that is no bigger than 8mm and not really technical

    All the ones people have linked have jets and mist mixed.
    The original question was are there any that are mist only and so far the answer is no.
    All the videos and links people have linked to do not show the mist ones only.

    Its a shame they cannot be found for the A3

    I think Peters last link is fan only.

    He showed us a video on the first page I think and still showed jets and mist.
    I may still buy them, but the jets really bug me, I don't know why.

    look at the first review for the item and it appears that it is jets, just advertised incorrectly.

    He posted two links. The second shows the correct picture for a fan-only version. Of course, what you get from the supplier may vary from that. :)

    Fitted the brotek ones today, very simple, it’s kind of a mix of the 2 but is significantly better than the standard ones.

    agreed. after 4 days of usage, the mist+jet combo means the whole windshield is covered immediately thus the wipers don't start in the dry bit meaning far less streaks and less fluid being used

    I have a PFL A3 8V and fitted the washers from an Audi A6 as many have done. I'm really happy with them and plan to get another set for my TT. These videos show before and after in case anyone wonders what the spray pattern looks like.
    Original 3 jet washers - https://youtu.be/70lV0dZfuVI
    New A6 washers - https://youtu.be/i-7OvqY_8IU

    Very easy to adjust the height - use a T8 Torx driver.

    100% recommended.

    Just wanted to say thanks to OP for the thread! I popped on a pair of these this morning - massive difference in cleaning, and no longer getting washer fluid down the side of the car as I did with the 3 jet ones. Well worthwhile upgrade, and Brotek had them to my door next day.

    Your welcome @DannyRS3
    I guess there is no pure mist sprays for the Audi that will fit the A3 so I will just buy the half and half from Brotek.
    Thanks for those who offered support and links.
