Nice. I buy mine from Amazon, but I have prime so free shipping. Bosch Icons are terrific.

Yea not to bad. I have prime to, but it stills 18.xx each on amazon. With the advanced auto parts sale I got them for like 17.xx and 15.xx. Not a huge difference but still a pretty good bargain, I also used the 15% off coupon. I didn't realize they had the 20 off 50 coupon or would have saved another 10 bucks. O well.

This is what I quickly dug up about Bosch Evolution vs Icons:


The Bosch Evolution is a new wiper blade from Bosch which is different from the Bosch Icon. It was designed to give better performance than a conventional style wiper blade at a price less than the Bosch ICON, which is the top of the line wiper blade at Bosch in terms of performance and durability.

If you were to visually inspect the two blades you would notice that the Bosch Evolution looks a bit different because it has a different style connector and it has a symmetric wind spoiler.

The rubber on the blades is also different. The Bosch Evolution uses a precision-cut natural rubber wiping edge and the Bosch ICON uses Exclusive fx dual rubber technology. The top of the fx rubber features a flexible soft layer where the rubber connects to the wind spoiler which reduces chatter. The harder wiping edge on the fx rubber offers superior wiping performance and 20% longer performance life vs. other premium wiper blades.

The BOSCH ICON wiper blades also offer a more precise fit to the windshield with a different amount of tension between the drivers and passenger side wiper blades to remove additional moisture from the windshield (less streaking).

Both are bracketless wiper blades, and Bracketless wiper blades are designed without metal or plastic brackets, joints or hinges, offering design and performance improvements over conventional wiper blades.

Both blades are created to be a great value for the price.

Ah! Understood. I actually had no idea they had a different model. Here I am thinking I have the Icons! LOL. I've got Icons on my Audi (know for sure they are) .... and i can't tell a difference. I wonder if there is a comparison somewhere.

I have not had good luck at all with any blade type of wiper. They all seem to not last any where near as long as the old style. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but...

^Buckeye, IME the beam style are a bit more sensitive to wear and tear from snow and ice. But if you flip them off the glass while parked during snow storms, and scrape ice from the windshield and wiper before use, these Icons are some of the best out there.

Thanks J for the heads up.
