    Be interesting to see how you fare with them Andrew, I've got them on my Skoda and they judder and jump a lot, wouldn't choose them for anything other than cosmetic appeal personally, let us know how they are in about a month.

    Keep em clean by using some vinegar or window cleaner on them, does help a bit.

    Same as my Dads Passat, but on My Vectra I can't fault them. So smooth and quiet!

    Having worked for VW in the past, I remember when they were introduced on the Passat! They were raving about them in the service dept, but didnt do retro fit ones (from what I recall....)

    When I drove a brand new 04 Plate Passat (with 5 miles on it!) to a customer in the rain, they were shocking!! Smearing and juddering accross the glass, not like these!
