But if you really want to get fancy check out this place

SSEi95 got a set from there, I don' know if he hooked them up yet.
Nope, not yet. Got the C3 for the winter now but I will probably hook them up over this winter when I work on the car. Install kit seems very straight forward and simple.

Although they probably do a nice job, they're too expensive for me. I switch to Winter Blades. They're an improvement over stock blades when driving in the snow and ice.

OEM replacement elements seem to be the best imo. I use the Anco winter blades during winter.

I just installed on the Malibu and going to on the Bonneville, a set of wipers that doesn't have any actual plastic or steel arms. It is a flexible wiper blade. I can't think of the company name right now but will check and post it later. I had to drive through real crappy weather this week ( so much ice on the car I couldn't open the gas door), and these wipers worked great.

I was really surprised to see how well they worked even at HWY speeds.

They are not a cheap wiper but they work.
