Default Wiper thread...

Yea, boring, I get it, but just spent $70 to replace the oem wipers this morning. Good news is they work great! Bad news is they look like ****!

Went with Rain-ex something or the other.. I kept the oem wipers. Anyone know if I can put ďrefillsĒ in them?

Iím sure itís my OCD, and Iíll probably get used to them, but these new wipers draw my eye! Big bulgy things... yuck... I canít stop staring at them...

Nissan Canada used to sell rubber refills. They stopped doing that and just sell generic, auto parts store brands.

I just got Bosch Icons for the Murano. They look good and work great and last long time. Expensive though.

That's what happens when you move out into the boonies - everything costs more.

I use rain-x latitude wipers and they last me a few years before I have to replace them. They've been marketed as being able to contour to the curvature of the windshield and I can attest that they hold up to their function.

That’s what they are! I should clarify that I don’t like the looks of them from the inside of the car. I saved the old arms and will get refills.

Yea, they really do look like chit. Apparently the ďinstallerĒ didnít put the plastic caps on the knuckles. Iíll see what they look like when the trim is added.

Right now, I canít stand them...

I walked in to Advance and looked at what they had. Walked out and went to Nissan. I may have bought brand new wiper blades. I can't remember. I rarely drive my car in the rain these days. R888r tires will do that to you. If it is raining, I take my truck.

Only wipers I'll ever use are PIAA Super Sporza's, which are available as refills. Note that the refill channel which slides into the blade claws is "wide" as there are two variations with wipers "wide" and "narrow". I can't recall if the OE blades have wide or narrow claws to hold the refill.

I did the same (drive truck) with another (non daily) car I owned with R888's but had a 2nd set of wheels/tires for travel and rainy season. If the Z is clean I'll still drive the truck rather than knowingly get it dirty, thereby initiating another chore by having to wash it.
