Rain X Latitude
Expense but worth it.

I haven't had very good luck with frameless wipers. I've tried two different brands (Rain-X and Bosch I think) and they both left streaks. It's a shame because they look really cool, but they don't seem to function that great, so I'll be going back to traditional framed windshield wipers next time.

I have had my car for 5 yrs, only been thru 3 sets of wipers. 1 set from the factory, the other 2 being the rain-x brand. I had the car for just over 3yrs in Tacoma, Washington where I saw plenty of rain and never once had an issue. Idk maybe I was lucky or something. But I run the rain-x on both my subies and as long as I keep the windshield and the blades clean they work great.

It doesn't matter, they all suck.

I'm having to buy 2 sets every yr. I think the manufacturers are giving us the big one either way.

I've had no luck with the expensive blades, I'm with Mosc on just buying the cheap one and replacing them more often.

so stock its not even funny...just kinda sad :(
