I've never found a winter wiperblade that worked well on an Audi windshield 
wiperarm.  I've used to wire 'em onto my 4K cars.  I've been using Bosch 
blades since they came out with a two-part rubber compound that lets them 
have a more flexible attachment of the wiping part of the blade, despite 
the cold.  They've seemed to work as well as the typical US rubber-shielded 
winter blades and they attach to Audi arms in the normal manner.
