Bosch replacement wipers

Can someone confirm if the below wipers fit a 2001 986 base? my car is a RHD ... i believe the first one fits the drivers & the second one fits the passenger. Can't figure out if LHD and RHD are different.

http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-22-CA-3397006508E7W-Clear-Advantage/dp/B007TG7I0I/ref=sr_1_2?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1427639134&vehicle=2001-2-18------------1-0&sr=1-2&ymm=2001%3Aporsche%3Aboxster&keywords=wiper+blades

BTW, anyone have a link for a replacement key shell? i tried one from ebay (it was made of plastic, rather than the original rubber). it ended up messing up my key push button inside (that connects to the circuitry). I only have 1 key left - and want to replace the shell with a rubber button covers (just like OEM).

Well, I use
Bosch 3397118906 Wiper Set Aerotwin AR550S - Length: 550/530

Very happy with them, much better than the original wipers.
Passenger side is lifted a bit on the outer side due to the strong windshield curve/bend.

thanks .. so indeed the driver and passenger are different sizes? (22" and 21" ? (550/530)
cos it defo looks like the driver side is longer.

however, im getting quite confused, as ive seen other posts that say that both wipers are 22" when they replaced with Bosch aftermarket ones.

I have these as well, i agree much better than the originals. I have also had the cheap version of this style wiper and they were crap, from now on i will use Bosch, so i would recommend the Bosch wipers.

i went with both of mine as 21", it was easier as i bought the wipers as a twin pack, works perfectly.

Went with two 22A ICON's on my 2003 Base and they fit fine. Definitely better than the stock wipers.
