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!).
