PIAA Super Silicone Wiper Blade Refills

Just wondering if anyone has used these with their OE wiper blade assembly? Hoping I can just remove the old rubber and stick this in (Car in question is my 2007 X3 3.0si) My wipers do a horrendous job so I'd like to replace them while I'm doing my last minute winter preps. I read that these silicone wipers work really well so I'd like to give them a shot. Prices seem to vary online but I'd like them this week so will probably check around locally.

EDIT: If they won't fit or I can't find these PIAA ones, Canadian Tire has Bosch Evolution Wipers for like $15 each. Heard good things about them too, I can pick up a pair plus one for the rear if anything.

Regards, Stephen

Haven't tried PIAA silicone, but the Bosch Evo wipers are great. Pricey though, so pick them up on sale.

That's what I use on my X3 and they work great. They go on sale every fall for $8.99. trying to find a replacement for the rear.
