Curious, but during the time you installed the Tyrolsport brace was Unibrace not making the XBQ?

A few weeks ago I did my 75k mile service. Well actually I did what was left of my 75k service. Over the last year and a half I have been slowly doing the bigger items of it like the haldex service. So at this point all that was really left was a cabin filter, oil change, and some other minor items. One of those minor items was the rear wiper blade. I have always hated the blade on the rear arm of our cars. It's the old metal style blade holder and the blade is stiff and never fully cleans the rear window. I also don't like the look of the arm and hate that no matter what the arm sags. The bolt is tight and I've even tried to remove it and set it higher, but it always end up miss aligned. Here is a picture of the old wiper arm and how it used to sit
I ended up finding a seller in Europe on eBay who had a rear wiper off an 8v A3 so I bought the wiper arm and cap from him. I also got a Bosch Euro rear wiper blade for it as well. here is a picture of how it looks now.
I like the look of the 8V wiper better and since it is able to curve it actually cleans the back glass pretty good.
Let me know if you guys want some part numbers and I will post them here. Also the washer jet from the 8P rear arm work with the arm off the 8V. That's about it for car right now. Winter has already shown its face here in Colorado so it looks like the only laps I will be doing will have to be at home on my racing simulator.

Ok guys here are some part numbers for the 8V rear wiper conversion.
I did not buy/use the OEM wiper I bought a Bosch euro wiper from Amazon instead. Here is that part number in case you want to go that rout.
Bosch rear wiper blade
Hope this helps. Also I will try and post some picks of my racing sim later this week.
Not 100%, but this may work, too.
