    Don't know the part No. but you'll need two different length wipers. 19" and 24".

    Whats the general view of the flat blades, any these good?

    Been using champion, these IMHO have been poor this time. used them before without any issues for years, but its time to change again...

    just wondering what most use on here? any known issues with swapping to flats..

    cheers

    I use the Vx flatblades every time and find them considerably better than anything else I've tried.

    I've got the tesco flat blades and they work well imo. They took a little bit of mod-ing as the driver side one slipped of the clip a couple of times because they're set up for left hand drive cars, but since then no problems. They're usual £6 each but regularly on offer for £3 each.

    You need a 24" for the drivers side and a 19" for the passenger side

    I've got a set of bosch aero blades on mine,had them since april and still good as new

    standard bosch blades sp19 and sp24 (if wanting spoilers just an an s on the end)
    Bosch aero blades twin pack ar607s

    we sell an oe spec aero blade and have done for the past 5 months they are made by streetwise which comes with a years guarantee and tbh for the money they are a pretty decent blade
