No kidding, BMW dealer wanted $99 for a pair of blades. Inserts only no longer available on BMW cars.
So I bought Trico-force for under $30/pair; hard to say but they develop small streaks, maybe cause I have some chips on the windshield.

I need to check if Good-year blades at Costco now has E60 fitment, they are super cheap when Costco runs *****one-get-one-free, like $7 for the pair.

Yes, the adaptor was included.

I just put on a pair of Michelin blades from Costco for about $11 each. Wipe fine, but the connector area sticks up higher than the OEs did. This is going to bug me since it's right on the 'horizon' at the base of the windshield.

Mein Auto: 535i
Am opening an old thread but wanted to advice from the gurus. I have a 08 535i and would like to use the PIAA wipers. I have 2 options:
1. Buy the complete wiper set from Amazon - PIAA 97351 Silencio X-TRM Black 26"/23"
2. Buy the inserts from Amazon - PIAA 94060 Silicone Wiper Blade Refill, 24"

First one is 70 bucks and the second is 20.

Question is can I fit the PIAA inserts into the stock 08 535i wiper blades and would it perform a well as the low profile set? (am worried about width here as 24" at 5/16 of an inch where as 22" is 1/4 inch as well as length). According to Amazon the original stock sets are both 24" Bosch 3397118955 Original Equipment Replacement Wiper Blade - 24"/24" but some folks have reported different lengths.
