2008 Astra XR
Default Rear wiper?

What are you guys doing for a rear wiper option. Replaced the front wipers today with Bosch OE's (22" and 19"), but they didn't have the rear wiper option in the chain parts store that I was in. Ideas?

Eventually I'd like to replace the whole arm to fit more universal blades. In the meantime I ebayed one Bosch rear wiper shipped from UK for $16.

I just order from the dealer, the rear is more expensive then both front wipers but you only need to replace it every 3 years or so
