I used the Bosch Icons for years and they are excellent. I just had a minor tear in the drivers blade. Car is only 4 months old and BMW will only replace the blades once per 12 months...

Thanks. That is excellent advice and I did come to the same conclusion this morning. Worked like a charm!

Saved file is only about 5K so any FAT32 USB device will suffice.
