This could become a popular mod.

Nenad forgot to add that you have to replace the whole motor, since the wiper sits on the opposite side of the pivot when resting and is offset.

Most probably yes. What is diferent in them, so you would like to have them on B5?
They have a thicker heavier wiper arm. They appear to make a cleaner more thorough sweep of the windshield. I'm looking for less streaking.
So has anybody tried this, that we know of?

O.K. As far as I saw on Audi pics, we ARE speaking about Aero blades. In this case you can do it with no problems.

lipper- are we speaking about those wipers or not?

If you interested in the Aero retro-fit, I believe drewparts sells everything you need to convert your current wipers to the aero wipers, you will need a new arm and wiper assembly. They aren't that great in my opinion, they are very quite but in the cold, I have trouble with them freezing up.

Yes! I like that rear wiper a lot (almost as nice as the Acura MDXs)...
I think I'm going for it since my OEM wiper was broken by a hungry car wash... :oops:

How can I get a "R" logo like this one?



thanks,
"R"enato

Whatever comes on the Audi 4.2, not sure about the blade itself.
:D You are tough guy. Do you have any pic to show us. As far as I know those are only wipers aside classical ones in VAG range.

It would help if you were more specific - all things lead to the Aero Wipers and as I stated, drewparts.com sells the kit to replace them. It's the whole arm and wiper, not just the wiper. I have them on my Passat and so does everyone late 02 and up.

Whoooaaaaa...Very confused...are we talking about a replacment for the rear window wiper or front? I have seen conversion kits for front wipers never rear.

I have a variant and HATE the rear window wiper looks very cheap. Does anyone have a part number for the wiper.

I'm looking for the Windshield Wiper Arms from an Audi-
The Arms appear to be thicker, and from what I've seen, the Audi Wiper arms seem to sweep in a more consistant manner. I'm hoping to eliminate streaking.
DO THEY LOOK LIKE THE AERO BLADES? I believe nenad has been asking you this question over and over and over and over.

I put them on my 00 and they're a lot better than the stock ones.
