Bosch wipers ordered.
My cars 3 months old, done 1500 miles and the wipers have been garbage since new.
Poor show VW!
Can you stick a link up to the ones you ordered mate?

Cheers

New wipers fitted.
Talk about chalk and cheese.
They are a 100% improvement on the crap VW fitted when new 3 months ago.

Incidentally, the main blade seems to be 1cm longer than the factory main blade but it works perfectly fine.

That’s because the size of the VW blades are 25 & 22 inches as I stated on page 1 of this thread

The Bosch items are 26 and 21 inches

Ironically, these were the best VW OE blades I've experienced . My last 6 VW cars were crap.

I must be lucky, my car is 2 years old this March and just about to hit 15,000 miles and the front blades are fine.

The rear blade is shot though. Ordered one from the link on here but they’re out of stock at the moment.

Snap. Rear is rubbish, fronts are fine. Goes back in March so I'll leave it for now

Just changed my front and rear wipers after 2.5 years and 50k. Thanks to the excellent feedback on this forum. In the end purchased the Bosch aerotwins from Halfords at £20 per wiper - front 26" driverside and 22" for the passenger side. They came with four different fitting brackets, bracket number 4 seemed the best equivalent.

Halfords didn't stock the bosch rear wiper so went for their equivalent for £12. Not too fussed about this as I have a lease car which will be returned in a few months.

2.5 years on and front wipers are original and work perfectly. Had to get a new rear wiper blade (Bosch) after someone helped themselves to mine and left me with a busted clip blade in its place! Unbelievable when the replacement was less than £8 with free delivery on interweb!
One tiny niggle I have is that almost every time I use the front washers there is a dribble down the rear window. And I am sure it's not 'fat fingers' using the wiper stalk. Must be my OCD as I then have to wash/wipe the rear window too. SAD!
When the time comes to replace the front blades it will be with Bosch aero.

On my last 2018(18) Tig, the fronts were fine.....but on my new 2019(69) they were AWFUL.....VW have clearly changed supplier or are using cheaper materials.....poor show.
