    Hi, the TT setup looks very similar to the cheaper wipers from the aero wiper GB except they need no mods... Is the TT setup better? The aeros make a very clean sweep, but then it causes a fine spray right in the line of sight to appear on the way back down..I think its water trapped where the blade and arm meet or something..

    I haven't seen the GB wipers so I don't know. If they're just the regular ones you can get from the dealer, then yes the TT ones are better.
    There are a number of changes on the TT ones not immediately obvious in the pics.
    As for mods, I'd hardly call snipping a bit off the blade a mod, a 2 minute job. For the extra wipe area these give, it's well worth it. As I said at the start, this is still 'work in progress' ;-)

    Has anyone tried the MK5 Golf arms and blades, I believe the blades are the right size, just wondering if the arms would be OK, apparently they are cheaper than the Lupo ones

    I've finalised the install now and it looks ace :-)

    Can't get the pics up as my camera lead is at work, so Monday will reveal all.

    Once I find a suitable blade for the passenger side, I'll post it up, but I didn't mind hacking one as an experiment.

    Blade x 2 - 8N2 955 425E

    I will check the VW arms (MK5 etc) next time I'm at VW. Most manufacturers use them now and most seem to also use the same mounting spline and nut size. So who's going to volunteer to go round all the different makes of dealers with a tape measure? :-)

    Stoney, flusted - Yep in answer to your Qs ;-)

    The passenger blade trimmage is just what I did but if you can find a different blade that works, all the better Still working on that.

    More shots.....

    Any instructions on how you went about it?

    My passenger side arm catches, so would be interested to hear how you solved the problem?
