Hey,

Looking for some wiper blades or my car. I went to Canadian Tire and they didn't have a listing for my car, so I called the BMW dealership and they didn't have a listing for it either. I found some blades on the internet, but located in the states, but I want something local. Any ideas?

I live in Windsor by the way.

I live in Windsor by the way.Are you looking for the wiper refills (rubbers) or the entire wiper blade assembly? You can buy the Bosch replacements (wiper assembly) from Parts Source the only thing is the refills are not always available and are different from OEM.

Read this thread so you have a better idea what you have before buying.

You can get bosch refill inserts from autopartsway.ca

or if you want to change the wiper, you can try Bosch Icons. I have them one some of my cars, they work well, but others have not had such luck.

If you were to change the whole whiper assembly from OEM to Bosch, would the wind deflectors still mount, or would it be a problem?

A BMW dealer does not have a BMW part? That sounds a bit off... are you sure you did not stumble in to the Mini side of BMW? :)

The dealer has a part listing for the rubber inserts ($18 each I believe) or the whole blade assembly itself (about $36 each). I bought the blades so I can look those up for you if you want off my invoice, if you need it. Or you can check www.realoem.com

I go to BMW Waterloo btw.

Good luck.
