I am looking to replace my wiperblades as the factory fit ones are awful. But I noticed that the wiper arm is a bayonet style one, there is no hook style wiper arm.

Is this a new wiper arm style? and where can I get new wiper blades from. I tried the Bosch Multiclip ones and they do not fit.

Hmmm, tricky. Flat-blade wipers are certainly a huge step forwards from the stock blades, though your tax disc may complain that it can't see properly as that bit of screen won't get wiped.

BMW/Mini do sell flat-blade wipers for the Mini and they call them 'Evo' blades, so it might be worth asking your dealer's parts department if they can supply them with a bayonet fitting.

Do you know if this is a new style arm for the more recent version of the mini?
It's a surprising for BMW to change to switch from hook to bayonet at this stage of the R56's life. For a May 2012 car, the RealOEM parts list is still showing the same hooked wiper arm and part number that my 2009 car has (item 2 below, but of course the diagram is drawn for LHD!).

Summat odd going on.
