    Not off hand, but they are different to each other.

    20" with spoiler for drivers side, 18" without spoiler for passenger side.

    The Bosch set Halford's sell for the Mk4 is wrong. I had to buy the two Bosch blades seperately.

    I highly recommend Bosch blades - I've fitted them to all my cars, even the two new cars I've had. They don't wear out after 6 months, they wipe properly, and they don't thump the screen when the wiper changes direction.

    Ditto. I also noticed that Halfarts have it wrong in their book for Bosch but for their own brand it does say 20S for dRiver and 19 for passengers. I pointed the fact out that the 2 entries in their book contradict each other but I don't think that the spotty faced youth understood what I was saying :roll:

    I also recomend Bosch wipers, much better than Halfarts own brand and Vauxhalls offering

    re: Windscreen wiper size

    I agree about the Vauxhall wipers, mine judder across the windscreen despite constant cleaning of the blades and the screen, time for a new set I think!
