I have Bosch Excel wipers from local autoparts store. Much better than stock ones.
^^^ What AznGA said. :D
Bosch make just about the best wiper blades out there. I wouldn't have anything else on my car.

I'm quite pleased with my PIAA wiper blades.

While I was in D.C. I saw an article in the paper about this new type of wiper blades that they came up with.
Normally, wiper blades only have 4-8 pivot points (where the springs are or whatever that press the blade to the window), but with these new wiper blades there are over 1000 pivot points.
What this does is make it so that the entire blade is always in contact with the windshield, instead of only a few points.
I don't know what they were called, and I lost the article. Do some research and try finding them. I know that's what my next set of blades will be.
