x3, they do great in all conditions was all I was pointing out. They have done me marvelously, also apply some Rain-x to your windshield. The stuff really makes a difference.

rain x even the non lattitude wipers work well, along with the wiper fluid and it works wonders in all conditions

That's just wrong.
also, please tell us what you tell the salesman at the dealership, when he asks you why you want to test drive another 2011 when you already own one? and, how do you "switch out" the wipers from your truck to the new one, if yours is at the dealsrship, because you left it there, after you drove the "New" one home?
If your going to make up a story, make sure you think about what your saying.
and don't say "someone drops you off or you drive another car to the dealership" because I'm not buying that.

A good quality wiper blade is only one part of the equation.

Over time the windshield pits and wears so that wiper blades, no matter how good, won't work as well as on a new windshield.

So, take some of the other good advice offered in these threads and treat your windshield with Rain X - it will drastically improve your vision in the wet by allowing the rain drops to bead up, and in many cases just run off.

All this advice may seem "pricey", but in most cases, you get what you pay for - and you'll also pay for what you get.

Please tell everyone you're joking so someone else doesn't read this and make a fool of themselves by going out and actually trying this.
