Anyone got recommendations for a B8 Dynamik? I'm starting to get smearing on my windscreen so i think it's time i got some new ones - they've been on since i bought the car.

cheers

TPS or direct from Audi service desk at any dealer.

There are even a number of OEM Audi dealers on Ebay which is even easier to purchase.

Went for the Bosch option on mine, got them via work for little over £20 :)

I have tried Bosch on both Audi's and BMW's over the years, they always seem to end up squeaking. I never put them on my Mercs though.

i've gone for the Valeos, were about £8 cheaper than here. i've seen a few comments about the Bosch being squeaky so i thought i'd avoid them.

I've always gone for the brand that VAG uses at factory, a word on the use of OEM, this just means that when a company selling you parts wants to provide provenance, they might use the term "OEM" - where this goes wrong is when for instance a company sell Bosch parts, Bosch being an OEM to VAG, it does not follow that the Bosch part you are buying as an aftermarket service part, was a part that VAG ever bought in from Bosch for factory fitment. For example, I don't think that VAG buy in Bosch brake pads or ignition coils, but they do buy in some Bosch parts. I have never ever bought Quantum wipers as they are just a "three versions almost fit all" and not OEM, I've always bought the correct VAG part from dealer, on-line, or where they have used Bosch at factory (Polo/Ibiza) from Halfords. Now if I was convinced that I knew that my S4 wipers were Valeo or Bosch, I'd just them from ECP or Halfords etc.

How are you getting on the with the Valeo's? About to replace my original 3 year old wipers (which show SWF as manufacturer, which I believe is the same as Valeo)

It is all about that BEARD!
Tps is easiest option.
