I have just bought a pair from Euro Car Parts, £22.76 in their black friday sale. Use adapter 4 to fit.

This is my first VW and also the first ever car where i had to change the factory-fitted wiper blades right from the start. With all other cars I had (all bough new), the factory-fitted wiper blades were much better than any aftermarket variants. I'm speaking about Toyota, Mazda, Volvo, Ford and Opel/Vauxhall.

Not sure if this is a general VW issue, but the factory-fitted wiper blades are absolutely horrible, to the point they make the car unsafe to drive if it's raining/snowing. Besides the horrible noise they make, they judder, leave streaks and generally fail to clean the windshield.

Thanks a lot for recommending the Bosch. They are still rather poor compared with the factory-fitted Valeo blades I had for example on my Camry, but nonetheless, they are light years ahead of the ones VW fits by default on Taigos.
