Which Wiper Blades do you use?
 
Few weeks ago I changed mine to bosch

http://www.boschautoparts.com/NR/rdo.../0/Icon540.jpg

I think this doesn't work well on my car because I hear some vibration between wiper and windshield.

Should I change back to original style wiper blades?

Also I don't know where is my wiper wind deflector... do I need this??

The recent wiper comes with wind deflector but old style wiper doens't.

I am using Bosch Icons too. They are fantastic in my opinion.

Wind deflector comes with wipers, driver's side only.

I hate the icons. They are the worst wiper ever. Same with those "reflex"s they sell at canadian tire.

Valeo wipers. :)

Gamite 11-25-2007 07:57 PM

using the icons, no issues so far. Boots, why don't you like the icons?

I used the first version of the reflex, they were garbage.

I like the Bosch micro edge.

I use the Michelin frameless wipers from Costco. Can't complain for $12 each.

I find that most frameless wipers ice up to easily in snow and cold weather. For winter, I perfer the old style: heavy frame with rubber boot surrounding it- but any faster than 100km/h and they start flapping like crazy.

Frameless can go up to max speed on the autobahn and still wipe perfect.

icons are only about $20/ea

Ditto on the Bosch Micro edge, great wipe no chatter or lift.

where? lol
does it look good on your E34?

Frameless wipers suck. I had them on last year and while scraping off ice from the windshield I contacted one of them and bent it out of shape. Once bent, they cannot be straightened back to normal. They're only good for three season driving IMHO.

My friend had the icons on his car, and in the rain they would always miss spots.

Then again, maybe the pair he bought were defective.

Bad experience with the Reflex here on two different cars. On one car the blade is so long that it chatters and lift at the far tips. On the other car they never contacted the passenger side properly and left big streaks on the windshield.

Went back to the cheap CTC metal blades, $6.99 each or so. Replace when worn. Rinse and repeat.

summit425 11-25-2007 11:57 PM

I am using reflex one right now and passenger side works good but not on driver side. It makes noise like when I am using wiper where no liquid on the surface. sounds like ta ta ta

I might change driver side only back to old style. BTW., Do I really need a wind reflector on the driver side?? Cuz I think I threw OE reflector away..
