    Har har

    I just use the OEM ones I bought from Pelican Parts. With Rain-X on the windshield, I have no issues so far.

    Get PIAA wipers. They are silicone based so they last the life of the car. They are amazing at repelling water too. I had them on my old Ford Escape for years and they worked great. Highly recommended.

    Removed Bosch ICONs for OEM wiper blades because the Bosch ICONs were totally shot, streaky, tearing and popped on direction changes. You can refill the OEM blade inserts for $11.

    I'm a big fan of the single blade style wipers (run rain-x latitudes or whatever on my F-250) but for the ZHP i'll just refill the inserts. Way, way cheaper and given the airfoil on the OEM wiper, BMW actually put some effort into the design.

    I've gone thru a few pairs of ICONs. Work great! Actually BMW has replaced the old style wipers that have replacement inserts with ICONs for e46s. Luckily the inserts are still avialable for now.
