    If you purchase from FCPEuro you'll never pay for another set with their lifetime replacement warranty.

    I highly recommend PIAA silicone blades! I have a set on my 4runner which sits outside in the sun all year round and they still wipe like new. I've had the same set since 2020.

    I just got a set of the Bosch replacements (link)

    I wanted to keep the original frames and get replacement inserts but some of the plastic pieces (guides, etc) on the frames were broken so I went with the blade type. Although I still prefer the look of the original frames, I have no regrets with the Bosch ones. Wipes well, cost effective.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the PIAA silicone blades; everyone has mentioned how long they last! I might look into those next.

    Edit to add: The Bosch set is cheaper than a pair from Costco (9.99 each usually), and imo works better for e46. I had a 6-8" circle that the Costco wiper just wouldn't wipe, and unfortunately it was directly in my line of sight.

    Edit 2: the weird wiping action I experienced with the Costco wiper might have been due to the guide on the left wiper arm that should have been removed.

    I'm also using the PIAA silicone wipers. The set that came with the car from the previous owner lasted well over 2 years. Tried rubber again, and now back to silicone. The other nice thing is that the silicone sticks to the glass and acts as a water repellent. No more rain-x!

    Funny you mention Costco, I just went there yesterday and got a set for my wife's Jeep.
    I was going to get for the 330 also, but FCP is on sale, and like someone else said they have a lifetime warranty, not that its worth shipping them back honestly, but For $15 you can't go wrong. Spend over $50 and get free shipping.
