Just go with the OEM blades, here's where i got mine: http://www.**********s.com/OEM-BMW-W...es-E90-E92.htm definitely worth the $50 to know your blades will fit properly and won't streak like the cheaper brands.

what is this rocket science? go to Wal Mart in the Automotive Area and pick up some Bosch ones there 14$ each, theyre the best wipers ever, they dont have metal/plastic like most wipers, its just one piece of rubber. and i believe its the OEM on BMWs.

$54 plus $14 shipping, $57 at local dealer, $14 at Wal Mart....give me a break fellas not all of us graduated from Princeton with a degree in mathematics....

So can someone tell me where to get the wipers?

Seriously online, it's showing left and right are in the 50's each, wtf? And btw I just replaced the wiper transmission linkage for my Nissan for $38 online, it's $455 for the BMW, sweet!

Probably an error in the catalog b/c the part# is the same...

61610415881 - Wiper blade COUPE, CONVERTIBLE, Left

I would assume that part# is for a pair, not left or right individually...still $47.90 plus shipping....

Incredible price for two pieces of rubber. Just to go with the theme I think I'll buy a $20 cup of coffee today.

I just wanted to bump this thread and say all the free anaco did not fit my car correctly.. I tried autozone bosche OEs which say they fit but they don't. Ended up shelling out 80 for wipers at the dealership :C Now the wipers sound like they are going across sandpaper.. I don't know if the anacos scratched the window or what I don't see any. Maybe the wind shield is just dirty.

why don't the bosch OE ones fit? there are multiple reports of them working fine.

passenger side too long?

i think all the blades touch the rubber molding now unless you can get dead stock.

When you buy a BMW you have to expect that some of the parts are expensive. The OEM blades are the best since they do not squeak or smear if windshield is clean. If you need to go to WALMART then trade in the car and get a KIA.

your logic is astounding.

I can give you a great deal on a blinker fluid change if you'd like.

The little cover on the blade that clips on doesn't fit..

I have an 09 328i... I dunno but the only ones that fit correctly are OEM.. Even tho they are made by bosch their OEs at autzone don't fit.

the covers are supposed to be popped off according to what i read


it would be good to know for certain because these goes on sale often and you can usually pick up a pair for $35

I did they don't fit the adapter on the bosche blades and all the other aftermarket blades is just too wide for the cover to pop back on correctly.. Honestly, I am sick to my stomach paying over 80 dollars for wiper blades.

Just a little update:

I installed the Bosch oe wipers on my 08 e92 and they work and fit fine. Nothing on the Bosch wiper assembly needs to be removed. Actually, doing so causes the wiper to slide around.

The passenger side wiper sits on the rubber molding a bit, but OEM ones do too.

Just installed a pair of Michelin Stealth on my 128i from Costco. They came with 4 different adaptors, one of which fit the arm perfectly. Total cost: $24 CAD from costco (vs. $90 CAD at the dealer).

So far working great!
