Are the wipers the same for the B7 as the B6. I can't find any listed for the B7. Any thoughts on the best suppliers. Also in Canada they fit special winter wipers, I think they are made from silicon. Anyone heard of these here.
Thanks.

Bosch Aerotwins for any car I've owned.

They are not the same I found !
I had a ripped wiper couple of months back, and had a spare used pair from my B6 I thought I'd put on for a while (Bosch 580's I think ?)

Thought it best to get new, so popped along to Halfords, 35, no way - though their guide states same for B6 & B7.

So, went to Euro Carparts, much cheaper,more professional, and its a new type.
Essentially, the bracket is about 30% narrower on the B7, heaven knows why, as windscreen identical grrr!

Euro Carparts much better bet, more up to date info, and cheaper.

Europa25 that's helpful. I hate halfords and would only use them if stuck.

I 2nd Euro carparts I have ordered from them quite a few times now I also find that putting in the reg number is very useful as it only shows stuff that is suitable for your car.
