Exclamation Wiper arm hitting the hood

Hey guys, the driver side wiper arm on my 97' E36 is not level with the passenger side and goes off the windshield when using it. I tried to adjust it, but it won't let me open the hood if I do it. I broke it trying to bend it straight. So, I bought one from ebay and is the same thing. It has a weird twist right at the spring loaded elbow that comes up and hit the hood if not adjust it high enough.

Any advice on how to fix it?

The problem was I had the wrong wiper arm. It varies by style: coupe, sedan and convertible. I went to the local shop to compare them and the convertible have a little bent in the middle that brings it parallel with the hood. Problem fix and I'm happy.
