I *think* LCIs are different but pre-LCI OEM are Valeo Ultimate, cheaper through Tire Rack or Amazon than dealership. Supposedly there are specials occasionally, waiting on one to pick up a spare set because they're still not cheap... working fine for me so far.

Do make sure your windshield is clean when you replace the wipers. I actually went so far as to wipe mine down with acetone when I replaced mine, then washed as normal, but they don't skip!
Another tip: lay a folded towel under the wiper arm you are working on in case the arm slips out of your hand without the blade attachment.
