    I've run sale specials, Rain-X, Bosch, and PIAAs. I continue to use the PIAA for a reason.

    I also use Rain-X and the Rain-X washer fluid. The washer fluid extends my application interval to six months (vs three with normal washer fluid).

    They're decent? I tried the Rain-X versions of those bracket-less wipers a few times around when they first came out. Kept telling myself the concept made sense, I'll give em another try. And every time I had an area of one of the wipers that wasn't contacting the windshield enough from day one. Different areas too.

    Not so with the Bosch Evos. My old braket wipers always left water lines were the brackets were, but the Evos are always nice and even. They work great.

    I know my rainx blades were crap after a few months on my lancer. Bought my wrx with anco and they lasted 2 years roughly.
    Best blades I've seen though come off newer camrys...If they can fit I'd throw them on...Cause they last for at least a year or 2 roughly 60k miles or more...and I can get the inserts for free at work

    Dang, just realized I'm still using these blades! I'd say it's time to change them but it really isn't. They still work as if they were new.
