What wiper blades?
« on: 28 March 2021, 09:36 »
What wiper blades do you have?

Mine a streaking and juddering a little and wondered what you have.

I used to get Bosch Aerotwins but are there any other out there that are better?

I put Bosch Aerotwin's on mine last year and have been very satisfied. They're much better than the standard one's VW fit at the factory.

Just looking at getting a set of AeroTwin for my Mk.8 but the Bosch website doesn't list the 8 and when selecting the A864S which go on the Mk.7, Halford's reg-finder says they're not suitable for the 8.

Is anyone able to confirm if the A864S will fit on an 8, please?

If these wipers are really that good maybe change the car! 😝

Measure current blades and compare to these. Just went out and got set, much better 😄
