For 2015 eGolf, Correct. I bought the ICON 260E & 180E for the front, and A282H for the rear. My ICONs came with 4 different adapters or attachments. Use adapter/attachment #4.
Thanks to your reply I was able to solve this. I went to O'Reilly Auto Parts today and found the Bosch Icon wipers that include the full set of adapters. For some crazy reason, Bosch has sold these wipers packaged two different ways. Even stranger, it seems that the first ones that I bought, without the adapters, may possibly be the newer packaging. Both versions of the packaging can still be found on the market today.
Here's an example of the correct Icon 18OE for the e-Golf, with adapters:

and this is the one without adapters:

The Bosch part number for the correct one is 3397013015, and the UPC is 77212 15222 3. Both the part number and the UPC for the one without the necessary adapter are different, even though the packaging for both says Bosch Icon 18OE.
All of the above also applies to the Bosch Icon 26OE, but the numbers are obviously different.
In regards to which is newer, the packaging for the one with the adapters shows a copyright date of 2014, while the one without the adapters shows a copyright date of 2016. Does this indicate that they originally included all the adapters, but then eliminated them? I'm not sure.
