I have been seeing commercials pop up for the new RainX Blade the Latitude. I had Bosch Icon on my s2000. Was going to order the Bosch for the porsche but was curious if anyone here is using the RainX Latitude and has feedback they can provide... Thanks in Advance. PS: this is something i can and will be installing myself ; )

I am using the new Michelin Blades (I think they are called "Arches", not sure) on my Ford Explorer. These are the best blades I have ever used. Great on snowy days...no snow & ice build up, since the blade is just a single solid piece. No openings. And, no "lift" off the glass at highway speeds. Not cheap. They were about $18 each at Wal*Mart.

I find it interesting that a company that makes a product designed to essentially minimize the need for windshield wipers, is now marketing... windshield wipers! :D That irony aside, I'd be curious for some user reviews as well.

seems the michelins are very similar and using the same design/approach as the bosch and RainX which are more or less the same price as the other 2.
