    Can I fit Bosch wiper blades on my Polo?

    Seasons Greetings,
    But can anyone tell me if I can fit standard fit Bosch wiper blades on my 2005 Polo?...I've fitted wiper blades on Ford's, Nissan's and a land rover and they all seem to have a standard long U shape to fit new blades to.
    But my Polo has a classy looking fitting that I've not seen before and before I 'Splash' out on some new wiper blades I thought I'd make sure I'm not making a horrible mistake.
    Any advice or just plain reassurance appreciated.

    Thanks Wolfsburg. I did that, but heard of a few people getting incompatible parts that way. I was really coming here for some reassurance from a polo owner that the standard Bosch wipers would fit. but they probs just will eh.

    I had changed to Bosch wipers on my Golf from new and changed them again after a year or so again to Bosch but I wasn't impressed with the quality. Put it down to my imagination - until I removed them and fitted an O/E set.
    Such a difference.
    What price clear vision?
    I know the O/P query was about fitment, my comments are on Bosch quality.

    Just my opinion.

    There are plenty of motor places you can go to or Google to see which wiper blades makes they stock.

    Not ignorant. Nobody is born with knowledge.
    Original Equipment.
    Genuine VW in this case.

    Take a pic of your wiper fitting when you go to eurocaparts to avoid mistake. Ive always used VALEO blades
