    Check a 20 inch wiper blade. I've always run 22s and 20s on my e46.

    "Generic retail store wiper blades sizes are commonly recommended at 22" (drivers side) and 19" (passenger side).
    The actual factory OEM sizes are somewhat longer at 580mm (22.84") and 500mm (19.69")."

    From the E46 Bimmerwiki

    I'm about to buy a set of those for myself.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of how those single blade wipers (Icon etc.) look. I prefer the stock look but those Piaas look pretty good, close to the OEM look. Here is another one that looks close to OEM....

    I just ordered a set of OEM refills for mine. I've just had a Napa brand refill in mine since I bought it and they worked great but they're starting to get hard. Thought I'd give the BMW ones a try since I was already ordering an aspherical left mirror.

    Barry, Those are the wipers I have on my car right now. If you go to BMW and try to order these you can't because they discontinued them. Which supersedes to the ICONs.

    Thanks Mikey. Ya, I thought I had heard that before. If they ever discontinue the refills too I'll just go back to the Napa ones. If I ever need to replace a whole wiper I'll probably get those Bosch ones.

    How do you guys fit the ICON's? Are they PnP?

    from past experience the brackets on most off the shelf blades didnt fit the arms.
