I've found the rear wiper pretty handy for keeping some semblance of rearward visibility, especially in the winter months when the back of the car seems to be constantly filthy. It also helps for batting off frost and ice when the heated glass is taking too long.

Does anyone actually use the rear wiper?
When it rains, which it does a hell of a lot in this country?!?  :huh:

I did a 4hr round trip on Sunday and the rear wiper was on for, I'd estimate, 95% of the time clearing the spray from teh car (and cars around me) as I made way way through the motorway network.

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

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

Boring fact #2; The last time I bought a rear wiper for mine from the dealer, the parts guy, who is the usual geeky, head full of numbers, expert, told me that the GTI version is slightly shorter than the other Mk7 hatches, because of the spoiler. Didn’t think about it at the time, but doing a quick measure, A282H, which is 280mm long, will fit fine. Must be one of those things that just crept through and stuck!

A couple of minor improvements to the interior; standard clutch foot rest cover courtesy of ebay and some covers to hide the isofix brackets on the back seat.
I didn't even know the covers were a thing but thanks to the wealth of knowledge on here I discovered their part number :cool:

Bling new footrest & covers from the dealer:

Before:



After:



You've all seen this before, perhaps not quite as grubby :whistle:

Foot rest seems very close to the clutch pedal in the last picture, have you driven it yet?
