Wiper Blade recommendations

Any recommendations on a very good blade? I am looking for something with good 4 season capabilities.

I second the request! I have 10K miles on my car and my blades suck! I haven't been able to figure out if it's the Meguiar's window cleaner or if its just the blades....anyone else having issues?

I thought my stock blades sucked from day 1 also. That is one of the VERY few things about this car I could complain about - and one easily fixed too.

thanks for the recommendation - do you have them on your Box? I bought some Bosche Icons for the wife's car, but they don't make any to fit the Porsche.

I have Michelin wiper blades on most of my cars and for the price, I think they are great!

Hi,

You might want to look into this Wiper Blade Sharpener, extends the life of worn wiper blades. See it at: http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_id=23

Hope this helps...

+1 for sucky stock blades.
You would think that if the german engineers can design such a precision machine, they can at least spend some time on the wiper blades.
