I wouldn't be too sure.  Although it seems to be a Japanese concept, 
Germans too have used "change for change sake".  I used to work at a 
Honda motorcycle shop, where the rule was: every model year is a little 
bit different so as to eliminate interchangability, and, as everyone 
knows, universal parts fit nothing.  That's why they are called universal.

If you would be so kind to do so...
We just got a pretty nasty storm here in Ohio, and the jets froze again, 
despite use of a washer fluid that is supposedly good to -20 deg.

BTW, Bosch makes the best wiper blades, but just like everyone else, the 
refills are total trash.  I normally hate refills, but I thought Bosch 
would be able to handle such a manufacturing task.  I was wrong.  Replace 
the whole thing or go blind...IMHO of course...
