the stock focus wipers suck ass... they make so much noise.. i need to clean my window with soft scrub to get all the gunk of it

where i am i always get a film on my window from salt...and then when it rains...it just, i dunno, almost mixes, stock wipers wouldn't work for junk, go to www.newedgeperformance.com and order the piaa's, they r 43 bucks...i hadda pay 32 for my bosch pep boy's pos wipers (the salt eats away at them living on the ocean)...def worth the extra few bucks

PIAA wipers last longer and grip the windshield better than anything else I've used.

yeah i think im gonna get the PIAA ones from tony d. any ideas of what i could put on the blades to keep them from collecting ice?

Is there actually something you can put on the blades to prevent that?

You need to get that rain beading stuff I forget the name of it but it works good as hell

The stock wipers do suck, and they are made by bosch. You can see the bosch logo on them if you look real close. I seem to always have some type of film on my windshield, and the stockers don't touch it. I use "invisable glass" to clean the w/s, it is by far the very best glass cleaner made.

Euro, here in the great white north they sell "Winter Blades" they are heavy duty, and more robust. The whole blade frame is covered in a silica rubber compound, this keeps the snow and ice from building up on the blades. They are butt ugly, but get the job done in the snow and ice.

Which link? The one for my web-site? Yes, I know I have been trying to figure that out. But, if you like, click the little www icon at the bottom of the post frame.
