    Z3 - Wiper blades

    Please tell me the standard/recommended size of the wiper blades on a '99 (Facelift-ed!) 2.8 Roadster. Mine are currently both 19", but I've read somewhere that they can each be different.

    Thx

    I think I had 19's on my 99, but I see turner offers 20" models as well. Either way they are symmetrical.

    Not sure of the lengths but realoem clearly shows two different part numbers for left and right wiper blades.

    61 61 8 389 573 - Driver's side
    61 61 8 353 297 - Passenger's side

    Go to autozone and theyll take it from there.

    They're 20" on mine.
    But they don't properly hug the windshield on the passenger side at that length, 19" is probably more appropriate.

    What would most likely work best would be 20" driver's 19" passenger's. But everything I've read has told me to use 20". I've got the OE blades in front of me and they're the same length.
