i've actually upgraded the 05 blade's(regular multiple pressure point ones) to the 06 oem aero dynamic blades. those of you who are switching out your 06 blades for after market ones, i just wanna let you know the oem ones are NOT cheap. for the front pair, the cost was over a hundred bucks CDN. i've had them for over a year and only now is the squeegee begining to wear out. so all i need to do is replace the rubbers and i'm good to go again. i also apply rainx to the all the exterior glass twice a year, which greatly helps shed water at higher speeds.

Exclamation ICON blades

Many have recommended ICON BOSCH blades, so i got them. Now, I’d like to share few observations after one month of use.
- Expensive ( nearly $50 for both)
-They look cool. The aerodynamic solid blade design pays off!
-Hot summer day + light rain --- VERY loud blades. They make a popping -knocking sound when they change directions. The sound amplifies when the rain is light.
-Heavy rain- good performance, not as noisy, almost tolerable.
Overall -- it is an OK blade giving the noise I have experienced, Ii will NOT buy them again. I am yet to try it in snow or cold weather..

Will try rainX or 2007OEM next time

Just my 2 cents...

I went from OEM to Reflex and they are not that great. There's no back-bone on the wipers and on the driver's side being so long; the wiper actually flaps over making a terrible slapping noise when I use it.
Rain-X is excellent. In certain conditions; you can drive without using the wipers. The rain just rolls off the windsheild and the wipers actually seems like a distraction.
You can use them on the side mirrors too!
I will have to look into the Bosch blades around here because I haven't found a good replacement yet....
OK; I guess I'll edit my response since the post above mine

Installed Bosch Micro Edge on both the FX and the Murano. Lasted only 4 weeks on the FX. My wife could not tolerate them, well too noisy. So went back to OEM, purchased refills and everything is great again.

I can just barely tolerate Micro Edge in the Murano. Same reasons as gs465 described.

I am glad I still have the OEM’s in the garage…

No more aftermarket experiments for me….

RainX makes all the difference in the world. Not only does it reduce the need for using the wipers, particularly at highway speeds, but it definitely makes the contact between window and wiper more 'slippery', resulting in a better wipe, less noise, and no film/haze. It also makes it a heck of a lot easier to remove bug doo from the window.
