Thumbs up Wiper Blades

If you fancy saving a few on wiper blades, I can vouch for these as a good alternative to genuine blades.

Don't fit the D3 by any chance do they?

No, afraid not. The fitment on the wiper arm is different.
I had a D3 for 5 years and resorted to buying genuine audi wiperblades. I had tried a few different aftermarket ones on the D3 but they all ended up returned or in the bin after a few days of wet weather.

Oh well. I shopped around before buying mine from Audi. They're good wipers, but at 50+ they really ought to be!!!

Bosch Aerotwin A016s fit the D3, but are slightly smaller than OEM at 22 inches long. Work well still
