I do not particularly care for the connector on the Bosch Icon wipers. In fact I'm inclined to return them. Flimsy connector.

I put Michelin A/S 3 on my 2009 528 I and I love them. Smooth, quiet, good in the wet, fair in snow. Great all around all season tire, IMHO.

I don't care what the F10 lovers say, the E60 is the most gorgeous car on the road. The multiple "look backs" after she's parked just never gets old.

The Bosch Icon blades have a funky connector that I don't care for. Costco does not sell a battery for the E60. I've used Akebono Euro ceramic pads with great results.
