My 2005 330CiC needs some new wipers. It's been raining non-stop here in North Carolina lately and my current wipers are well overdue for replacement. Sun finally came back out and I sent time giving my car a nice wash.

First. Can we still purchase just the rubber inserts? I think I read on the forum that most dealers no longer sell. I think I also read that some rubber inserts for other car brands fit? What's the truth? Any suggestions?

Second. If no inserts, what are the preferred wiper blades of our E46 experts which deliver good performance at reasonable cost?

Thanks!

Yes, brick and mortar shops want to sell the expensive re-usable stuff. Inserts are available, I think particularly from Valero. Search on AmaXon

Just be aware that the wipers are 2 different lengths....IIRC, the driver`s side is 22 inches, the passenger side is 19" (or possibly vice versa).
