)Wipers brand has expanded its line of premium Contour(® )profile-type ("beam")
wiper blades to include coverage for the 19-millimeter bayonet and side-pin

ANCO Contour "N" Series blades are available for late-model Volkswagen Beetle,
Jetta and Passat and several Audi models equipped with 19-mm bayonet
