new bosch icon wiper blabes
#1302900 - 08/18/06 06:36 AM

I just bought new bosch icon wiper blades. It cost $40 for a pair! Anybody ever use these? They look cool, and they have integrated spoilers. 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 have just the regular ones for about 20 a pair and love them. they do last longer (IMO) and work well. i always use rainX with any wipers. its always 200% better for me that way

I have had them on since December. So far have had no issues with them. I think they look sleeker and work better.
Better as in they have a more even pressure distribution due to the internal spine.

I have the PIAA wipers and its been almost a year and a half now and they are absoloutly amazing, they keep getting better and better. They have the spoiler on them as well which is why I purchased them in the first place cause I was having problems after 50mph. I love 'em

Bosch is copying Valeo's

I drove 85 mph through the rain yesterday, and these wipers were great. Are the valeo's or piaa's any cheaper. I don't care for the brand. As long as they work well and have a spoiler I will be fine.

I just replaced mine with the Bosch Microedge which cost a little less than $20 for the pair. So far they are performing quite nicely, and I have no complaints at all. I just couldn't justify paying double that price for the Icons.

Same here. No way I'd pay that much for blades. Hope they last forever!
