Re the wipers, is it the same set/part number for the 7.5 as it is the 7?

Each time I check compatibility (eBay, Amazon etc) it comes back saying not compatible.  :shocked:

Set ref A864S is what I bought and they are more or less identical to the OEM ones I removed except for the Bosch branding.
Thanks, and the rear is A282H?

Yes, as per watchdogs comment, A282H for the rear.

Boring fact; the Bosch rear wiper is actually very slightly longer than the OEM one.

Does anyone actually use the rear wiper? I haven't used it once on my new car and only used it twice on my previous GTi and both times were by accident.

It's a dust collector and window scratcher when you accidentally turn it on covered in dust. Rear wiper delete cleans up the rear end nicely
