They are a royal pain to install correctly, never fit the armature like the originals, and rarely match the quality. It's what dealers all use for warranty replacement.
I know, they put a set on my car (free!) and the first time it rained I couldn't wait to get them off. Free was too high a price for them. I'd suggest to anyone who wants some premium blades which are totally quiet (including in the airstream on a dry day), get a set of Bosch Icons. Installation takes a minute per side. Thank me later.
Icons are wonderful but tend to streek after about a year. The Evolution I've found to be much better.
