I have used them all... The icons blow them all out of the water. Nice clean whipe, no noise, and NO skipping around. Worth the money to me, its rains in orlando pretty much everyday in the summer so i use them alot.

I've currently got some cheap German brand on my car. They've got a spoiler and a little yellow spot that eventually turns black, which reminds you to change your wipers.

They work perfect in conjunction with rainx wipes. No skipping/streaking/noise/etc.

I need new wipers for my Sentra... whatever is on them is crap! They skip like hell at 85MPH and streak in light rain.

Well, that makes sense. If I lived in Florida, I'd probably go for the absolute top-of-the-line too. Crazy weather down there!

How can you justify $40 wipers? It can't be that these last significantly longer than any joe blow brand. I guess if you have the excess cash flow than it's justified. I think I'll stick with the $3 Meijer crap.

got them before they came out as demos, $40 for wipers is expensive unless you need to use them a lot.

Bosch is copying Valeo's




I've got the PIAA's also. Mine are about 2 1/2 years old and still going strong. No streaking or squealing.

Maybe my wipers will stay put when driving fast on the highway. Just curious if anybody else has tried these. They better last a long while if they cost this much.




i just bought these as well...they are the ones that are completely rubber right? i like how they conform perfectly to the windshield....no noise, perfect wipe - and they even have these nifty covers that hide the rusted hooks where you clip them on.

overall, i am very satisfied. Considering i have only replaced my wipers a couple of times since i've owned the car (5 years) i'm not worried about the price. We'll see how they hold up, but as of right now i am very satisfied.
