GTV6 wiper blades size

Hi to all,
I just bought a GTV6 (owned one a while ago), with windshield wipers that look a bit short and have a poor coverage of the windshield. I remember that I replaced the ones I had on my old GTV6 with blades longer than OEM which gave me better coverage and worked great (relatively, with a regular dose of RAIN-X and on the "speed of light" setting that only GTV6s can deliver). What I can't remember is what that (maximum?) length of the blade was that I used. What length(s) are you using on your GTV6 and what brand? I am looking at 18'' Bosch Super Plus, but not sure if they will fit and how they would perform.
Thanks,
Darko

P.S. I am in England, and decent wiper performance i pretty much a must.

From High Performance Driving :
"A 21" wiper on the driver's side and a 19" on the passenger's side works well to cover the most swept area on the windshield of the Alfetta-GTV series cars."

And here I was thinking I was the only nut who would ever go to the trouble of having two different sized blades for better coverage on my old Alfetta GT!!
I think I used a 20/18 split - either way - vast improvement in swept area over stock!
