Bosch Icon Windshield wipers - 5 stars

I installed these a few weeks ago and by far this is the best $45 I ever spent! No more shuddering wipers...just smoooooth, dead quiet operation. Anyone's X5 that suffers from the noisy, studdering stock wipers needs these! And, they look much better!

Driver's side: Part No. 424A
Passenger side: Part No. 422A

Parts America has them with free shipping:

Note: one the driver's side you need to remove the retaining clip (that held the stock wiper) from the middle of the arm...takes 5 seconds with pliers.

I wish these fit on my 330xi.. All that seems to really fit is the stock Bosch wipers.

Can you pick them up at an auto parts store or do you have to order on line? From everything I've read, I'm sold. I'm going to get one for the rear also.

Hard to find, those Icons are...
The "locator" does not list "Icons", as a specific prod.
and the 5 auto parts joints here in the Naples,FL area do not
carry Icons. I've been to all 5. They have the microedge but
not Icons.

I've read they are great...maybe someday I'll find some, lol!

Too bad, I picked them up at my local Kragen Auto Parts. You could also order from www.tirerack.com the Valeo Ultimate Wipers which works just as well.
