And so begins the personal customization of a sweet ride!
BTW I read a great article in consumer reports recently that evaluated windshield wipers. Bottom line?
Rubber or silicone, their all about the same. 6mo life max.
From Consumer reports web site:
When new, we saw that all of the tested windshield wipers (Anco, ACDelco, Bosch, Goodyear, Michelin, PIAA, Rain-X, and Trico) provided very good or excellent performance initially, but most quickly degraded after a few months of regular use. Depending on the model, deterioration showed up on the windshield as streaking (leaving lines of water behind), smearing of the water (instead of clearing it), or missed areas of wiping. Because we found that a wiper blades will typically provide very good or better performance when new, with performance dropping off quickly, most blades should provide adequate performance after about six months when they should be replaced.
