I know this has probably been discussed in depth before but am having probs searching so.......

I have the rear one and find it gives a much cleaner sweep that the old style wiper blades however I have heard wisperings that the front ones are not much good? Is this true?

I need to replace my front ones as they are knackered, do i do a straight swap or go for the aero ones? I do think the aero ones look better but would also hope they function better as the ones atm arent great with flies etc, normally just smearing rather than cleaning.

Also where is the best (cheapest) place to get them from, have searched ebay but to no sucess, may just be my incompetance [:cool:]

I have put a set on mine only about 1month ago from a donnor part exchange vehicle. [6]

They are better at higher speeds as they are designed to stick to the screen due to the spoiler design.

I have found a slightlly better clean but that's probally due to mine old blades were a bit old.

Do it.

The R32 comes with Aero wipers on the front as standard (not the rear for some strange reason). Anyway, they are way way better than normal wipers. They stick to the windscreen much better and work just as well at high speed as they do around town. They also seem to deteriorate at a lesser rate - i.e. even old ones work pretty well with little streaking.

Plus.....Aero blades are cheaper than normal ones !

Thats my next mod and i believe you can can them from vagparts.com for about 50 squid plus VAT.

Do we still get 10% discount from them? - its been a while since i used them.

Anyone know any place you could buy them for less?

I was under the impression that aero wipers only came in with the MkV but I saw a load of MkIVs (inc. R32) at my dealer on Sat, plus previous-generation Polos and some Boras with aeros, I guess they came from the factory this way, can't believe they've all been modded. Didn't like the look of aeros at first but now I know more about them and their function, think I might go for it. Like the ones with Bosch logos [:D] Might as well say, "Nick me!" [;)]

I've dealt with Shaq before and the guy's a diamond. Didn't think he'd been around too much lately tho...

Also, cashflow is a little tight this month as i'm moving house, so was really lookin to slap it on the plastic.

I might get these next for my car. They do make the car look newer too I think.

Ive been quoted ?55.48 + ?7 delivery = ?62.48 from Shaq, but thats not a GB price.

I went through vagparts online shop and they came to just over ?69 delivered.

All I'll say is that since I fitted them to my wifes golf the ear ache has stopped about how bad her wipers were compared to my aero's......and they look better too.

Buy them from shaq....Kool VW best prices and good service, it might make him groan[:'(] a bit after the last group buy though!!

Definately do it, I changed mine out, and what a difference!!! Got mine
from VAG Parts, fitting can be tricky if you don't have some pointers,
like the removal of the old ones!!! You may already be aware of this
but if not give me a shout.

Aero wipers are cool,....but and this is the only but,...they are a little fragile.

I have the VW original ones (not Bosch) and already they are splitting and this leads to lines of water not being removed.

On the plus side they are 100% better than the standard items I removed.[:D]

I have put these on my Bora and I am 100% happy with them, well worth the money.

My dad has them on his Superb and he says they are terrible?

I guess it boils down to personal opinion and the vehicle.

Cheers thanks for the opinions guys, does anyone have the part numbers to get these from a dealer, so that i can try them and see how much they are? I often find that because you avoid P&P that way they can be cheaper.
