I've been on a mission to make my hatch look cleaner/smoother and to accomplish this, I debadged it and removed the rear spoiler. My only problem now is the horrid rear wiper. Im curious if anybody knows of any wipers that may look a bit nicer (maybe off another car etc) that would fit on my car?
Pics for views.. (the emblem is being shaved when it goes into the shop next week to fix rust spots)



Picture before spoiler was removed

Cullen used to sell a "smooth" wiper. It looked a lot better.
Everytime I pull behind a Toyota Hilander SUV, I gaze longingly at it's wiper because it's nice and smooth too. It is angled upwards like ours, and it might fit. Chances are it's too long or the bolts wouldnt work with our motor, but I haven't gotten out and measured. Maybe check that option out. Gooood luck!

Well you could put the OEM plastic cap back on the washer nozel and nut. I think that would make it look much more appealing. You could also do the MK2 rubber thingy and totally remove the wiper. Both of those would clean up the hatch nicely

Re: GTI Hatch Ideas (baomo)

In the year i had my rear wiper, I never once used it. A little RainX and there's really no need.
But I've heard that the BMW 5 series wagon has a really smooth wiper...
