    Fitted my aero wiper conversion today vw part # 1J2 998 002, what a revelation, I can actually see where I'm going now....

    When i ordered these yesterday the guy at my local vw dealer said "these are very good I got some on my car and their brilliant, you'll be impressed"

    Yup I concur, they clear the screen so much better than the original wipers, even when they were new 12 months ago, they didn't clear water as well as these aero's do....

    A result there me thinks, and all for less than £25.00 the pair, for genuine vw wipers..... :D

    Now we need Bosch/Valeo to make an aero rear wiper. The Fabia one is a bit too bulky for my liking.

    This is a great, easy cheap conversion. And it works better than the originals too. Top work VW.

    just bought mine, VW Bristol didn't know about these either. There is a list on the packaging of other models they will fit. Good thinking by VW. Look much better than stock and as cheap as other manufacturers.

    Spot on

    Just fitted mine, ordered mine from VW Slough and had them the next day. Haven't fully tested them in the rain yet but did a cheeky dry wipe and they seem to be okay....
    ...BUT....
    ...has anyone noticed that the passenger side wiper doesn't make full contact at the end when it sits? Is this normal? Hope this wont make any whistling noises at speed. They look great otherwise from the outside and I just have to get used to them from the inside as it looks like they sit a little higher or maybe just because they are solid and don't have any frame work like the originals.
    Can't wait till it rains.

    Depends on what looks you like, they are all an improvement over standard. I have Aero conversion front and Fabia rear.
