      Any recommendations for good wipers, my current ones are pretty old now.

      Definitely only go OE for the rear. I tried a few aftermarket ones and NONE of them fit correctly.
      I've used Bosch wipers on the front and they've been fine. I don't think the OE wipers cost much more than the Bosch ones though.

      Bosch don't fit properly on the front. The OEM blades attach much more securely to the wiper arms.

      OEM: $41 for a set from ECS
      Bosch Icon: $44 for a set from Autozone.

      OEM all the way. I've been down the Bosch Icon road, and wasted my money.

      i have the icons now, got them on sale, but the attaching thing, while it works, sits annoyingly higher then the low profile oem thing.

      they wipe the rain away just fine, but look funny.
      Audi is the girl who was really cute in high school, but now puts on way too much makeup in order to try and hang out with the hot girls.
