Hi, New to Audi Ownership Wiper Blade Issue

Post by 215m3 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:47 am

Hi

I have purchased an S4 and was advised by the previous owner it had B7 wiper arms to allow for the use of the aero blade. I have searched on google to see if there were any pictures to show the difference, but could not find any.

How do I know that I have the B7 wiper arms? Can anyone post a picture?

Thanks

Welcome.

I've never heard such a thing. That could be the case with A4s but I believe all b6/7 S4s have aero blades. Mine's a 2004 B6 and has them.

Was it bought privately or through a trader?

Traders know a bit about most cars but some have said things to me before that I've known to be incorrect. What year is yours?

That's a very early one.

It's possible the first batch came out with the non-aero type like A4s but I've never heard of of that in all my years of ownership and forum usage. I wouldn't call the aero type B7-specific either since, as I said, they were used on B6 models.

If they in fact didn't have them from the factory it's a definite bonus because the aero blades work really well. I bought some Bosch aero blades for the standard wipers on my wife's Suzuki Swift but they weren't very good. I think they work better with a more hefty arm specifically designed for them, like ours.

Do you have any pictures and details about your car?
