I made mine by cutting and welding the linkage too, mega simple!

My mate has a monostyle job, part of the linkage rubs on the airfilter for the heater!

PVD sell the monostyle ones.

Plus if you mention Monostyle in a mag feature Phil @ Monostyle will send you a cheque for 10.

Phil is a top bloke, he even fitted my wiper for me

I've got a Monostyle Single Wiper. The linkage on the first one I bought snapped, I rang Monostyle and they took my details and said they would get back to me, but they didn't, so I went to the garage where I bought it and they said they would fit me a new one free of charge and charge Monostyle for it, fair enough. So I pick my car up with new wiper fitted, and 2 days later a brand new linkage comes through the post from Monostyle as a result of my original call. So now I've got a brand new Linkage sat in my garage.

I had one on C13 & on the Punto.
Apart from looking better i wouldn't bother as both of mine were crap in the rain especially heavy down pours
