    Purchased these bits for my wife's 8P Sportback - will hopefully get them installed tonight or later this week. Will report back :)

    Sorry for digging up an older thread but when you put the part numbers into Google it comes up as both an Audi and Volkswagen part. I was in Volkswagen today and the sales guy said the parts were not interchangeable and never even checked for me. I have a VW garage nearby so its easier to order from them than audi. The one from the Tiguan looked about exactly the same length as the original wiper and the golf or 8v part looks shorter.

    Get one of these https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/142038902252
    It’s cheap and cheerful but it’s spot on. I got one for mine and I thought for that amount I couldn’t not get one and try it, I were going to just throw it away if it were no good but it’s exactly the same as an Audi original wiper and looks and works brilliant

    I wonder if the q5 one is more like the original in length. The same company might stock the same part for that on the cheap

    Just get one of them above. It’s cheap enough, brand new and is exactly the same as the aero wiper that comes on the 8v Audi A3

    I recently got A4 B8 arm and blade to my A6 C6

    [​IMG]

    Great mod and upgrade as the blade is longer than original was.

    [​IMG]

    Been told, that I can with A3 arm as would be similar but already seen what I’ve done elsewhere

    Righto ordered a q5 one for a tenner and we'll see what its like. It's only a bit of plastic and audi wanted 52 quid just for the arm itself.

    Because it's the same length as the original one. The new s3 one is a bit shorter.

    These ok for sportbacks too? Are they all the same or do I need to look for a specific wiper?

    I just used the jet from the 8p and it works perfectly as well. The aero wiper Looks nice and sleek. It's amazing now having done this that you start noticing just how many a3's there are with broken rear wipers
