Bosch all the way. I've had them on all my cars. Eventually they wear down as a wiper blade will do but they are pretty solid up until they need changed.

I tend to order the OEM Subaru blade inserts online. I ordered the last ones from Ebay, and they've been great.

I've tried all sorts of blades on various cars I've owned and I just went back to OEM.

Main issue was most aftermarket would not follow the contour of the glass at the edges and I hated that.

Put on another notch for both Bosch Icons and PIAA Silicones for me, used both, and both lasted 3+ years each.

Only in AZ would it last 3yrs!! I usually swap out the blades on my daily drivers every 6-12months including the Bosch and Piaa's you mentioned. I tried those as well in the past.

We bought Bosch Icons but for the price I was wondering if they are worth it or something is better. According to Todd, they are tops.

I'm using the Rain X Latitudes. These work pretty well, no complaints really. I've heard the Bosch Icons are the best, so I'm thinking I'll try those next time just to compare the two. From what I've read those are the best two options.
