I prefer the Polo/Golf Mk5 aerowiper:
It's so easy to fit too.. literally (asuming the wiper comes straight off) you could do it in just about 1 minute ! and it looks so much better too ! And works great.. mine was in constant use on the way to work this morning.
Tylerama - is it a straight swap? I'm going to order one from VAG parts, but want to check it's an easy swap (not being very good at car DIY [:I] )
Yup.. it is straight on. Squeeze the cap a bit to release the caps.. that hinges back.. then you can get at the nut. once this is off you may have to twist it a bit as it has a soft metal ring that bites into the thread/splines of the shaft.. this may be a little seized and difficult to loosen.. but it will eventually come off. Then just put the new one on, tighten the nut, replace the cap.. eh voila !
