Searched... no luck.

Question: Why would the 2012 S model Hardtop have 18/19" wiper blades and the 2012 JCW have 20/21" wiper blades??

Note: This thread is only about the difference in length of the wiper blades... NOT how they attach, NOT the brand choice, NOT type of blade, NOT the material.
I DO know that there was a change in attachment points from around 7/2012+.... (J-Hook vs. Bayonett)

BUT... Why a diff in length??

My guess is the 2012 JCW selected is somehow on here site crossing over to the Coupe' and not the hardtop? Which has that size.

trico as a source for quotable info on this car and thread starter. Really?
Order from ECS or WMW or FCP and you’ll get correct parts. Regardless, not sure the 18 to 19 thing matters in the end for your car.
In a different context, take away the 1 on a Saturday night and see the additional right swipes on the indrs
