This is what I do as well. I usually get the replacement inserts from
the dealer. They're called Autobahn. Most aftermarket VW accessories at
the dealer are label thus. Is this a spinoff of Bosch, or a different
company? They seem to be decent blades and last about 1 year, and fit my
jetta, my dad's 4k, and my mom's Legacy (no, really!).
