Gen1 & 2 are the same, I've swapped between ours with no issues, the only thing I have done is put the 19" blade on the drivers side instead of the passengers....

BMW MINI recommended changing the wiper blades every 6mths if you have auto wipers!

Phil, they're on the car now, that's the important bit Smile

Uncle Dave - they never went in my car as I couldn't get the mats off the hangers lol, they're in the garage somewhere.

You may as well sell them although they come off the hangers ok, you may lose a nail or two and suffer a few cuts in the process Wink

Had another look at this today & my passenger ones decided to perish in my hand Sad The rubber split right off so had to get some quick so went to my local parts place & got some fitted. Ugly fat clip,Not cheap & not sure on the fit but well see. So may still need some decent ones

Wiper blades.com ones have been on Julie's MINI for 2 years and not fallen apart, normally give them a good scrub and like new again....
