I've got the D2 OEM blades on now (supplied by TPS), complete with the curvy lefty. Too early to tell how they perform, but they do seem to work well so far.


Got mine via a trade contact. How are you guys buying from TPS; aren't they trade only?

TPS Glasgow will sell to private individuals over the counter. I mean, a sale is a sale .

Ah, thanks. Good to know!

Although 200 miles is a bit far to go for a pair of wiper blades


Perhaps I should try the local branch.

Visiting a counter for car parts will be an interesting trip down memory lane. Hard to remember the last time I bought something for the car that didn't involve a mouse click!

Milton Keynes branch does sell to public but prices without trade discount are comparable or higher to Audi prices. Couple of times that I have checked it has always been cheaper to buy from Audi Northampton with their discounts and shorter distance to travel for me as well.

I have an account. But i've been reliably informed that Portsmouth TPS will sell to general public too.

I bought these for the D3 and they worked a treat. Can't remember if I got them from ECP or eBay
