Trico Neoform: cheaper than other more mainstream brand names (here’s looking at you Bosch) but is built very well with a great connecting mechanism that works with all kinds of cars. Also the connecting mechanism and mount have a casing built on top of it that extends further than other brands so the entire look of…
Valeo Ultimate Beam Blades. These blades are durable as heck! You can easily get 18months out of them with no problems or issues. They are whisper quiet with no chattering or even noise when the wipers switch direction. I have been using them for about 8 years on all our cars and will not use anything else.
I really like the Trico NeoForm. They’ve continuously held up through the extreme heat and extreme cold weather cycles we have here, they wash without streaking, they’re quiet, and they are easy to clean.
Rain-X repellency. Used to have Bosh Icons on everything, but these have proved superior. These leave silicone polymers on your windshield, but not on your paint as far as I can tell.
Consumer Reports did a test a few years ago and the Rain-X Latitudes were the only type that provided great cleaning action and also lasted longer than 6 months before starting to streak. I haven’t used another type since I read that and they can power through an Iowa winter no problem.
Ford Motorcraft - There were a set of these on my wife’s E350 when we got the van back in November of 2015. I have no idea how long they were on the van at the time, but they finally stopped working great about 4 months ago and that was good enough for me to put another set on. Here in Norcal blades usually last a…
Scrubblade either heavy duty or platinum.
Michelin 8500 Series Stealth Ultra Windshield Wipers
PIAA Super Silicone
They don’t dry rot like standard rubber blades. The silicone blade is gentle while being effective at squeegeeing off water, like the silicone water blades used to dry off your car. The blades seem to be much more durable than rubber and I hardly ever need to use them at night because they leave…
Probably an unpopular opinion, but the best blades for me are the Clear Plus brand cheapos. They have plastic bushings in between the articulating metal frame, and they are hyper cheap. I used to sell nothing but Ancos, but their quality of late hasn’t been great. I have installed literally hundreds of the Clear Plus…
PIAA Si-Tech. No streaking and no skipping like I was seeing with my Icon blades or OEM blades.
Right! Run a garden hose and empty it into your driveway and let it run into the street and then eventually into the storm drain like everyone else!
Will it grill?
Motherfudger.........good thing I fell asleep last night. I was literally going to order the Powercore II, dead set on it after I finished watching some Hulu then bam waking up to this deal lol.
I look forward to the Kinja Deals selling random car parts to put in your backyard next to the above ground pool
Just bought four of these for my Corolla.
gah, that picture for the back shaver always gets me.
I got it at the same price as you and also love it. It gets under the couch and under my dresser, and other places my regular vacuum can’t reach. Plus, I hate vacuuming, so this is great maintenance between my probably embarrassingly long gaps between ‘real’ vacuuming.
(It does require some babysitting, so I don’t…
Holy crap am I excited for this. I’ve been wanting to get a robot vacuum for a while now and the stars aligned on this deal and a fresh $200 Amazon gift card that my employer just gave me.
I bought this when it was on sale the last time ($187, I think) and it has been great. If you’ve been considering a robovac and haven’t pulled the trigger yet, don’t hesitate.
