BMW part# is pretty good, last summer at end of F30 production it was $10 per pair shipped from online parts desk from BMW dealer!

The next closet one is Valeo brand, they have same pointy adapters(same as BMW brand) that the Bosch brand does not have.

The difference is that the pointy adapters sit flush with the wiper arms and do not stick up above hood line, hence less wind noise than Bosch.

OE or Valeo (Valeo is pretty much OE supplier of blades to all Euro vehicles).

I used the goodyear wiper blades from Costco when they were like $3 a pair and came with all the adapters that fit BMW too. They sat a little higher than OE, but for $3/pair, I was more than happy to live with the fluid hitting the blades some times. They performed remarkably well.

I ordered a set of OEM blades from https://www.bmwpartscenter.com/. It was $25 including shipping.
