wiper blade insert replacements
 
I need new wiper blade rubber replacements. Is there any place other than the stealership that has them for the e39?

If it's the rubber insert you're after the price is not too bad from the dealer. Alternatively, you can get the inserts from autopartsway. Checkout the type of wiper blade assembly that is installed on your car before buying anything.

^ thanks man. It's been awhile since I've bought the replacements inserts. I did purchase them from the dealer last time but cannot remember how much I paid.

some require new inserts and some require new blades with inserts. The price varies accordingly...

The wiper blade assemble sells for $65 at Town and Counrty BMW. If you read the link in my post (above) you will see why I had to replace the assembly last time.

I'll tell you what - I tried rubber inserts from every seller out there on ebay, online parts places etc. I thought it was time to change my windshield because the wipers just did not clean etc. I then went and bought the inserts from the dealer - worth every penny. the difference is huge.
don't waste your time on aftermarket crap. these you are better off buying from the dealer
