Mine are nearly 4 years old and stock wipers too. It's just a case of looking after them.

I used to work for a company called Trico and they made wiper blades and motors for window wipers for all manufacturers. The exact same wiper blades used for car brands were also packed as bosch but with a bigger price tag. False economy if you ask me as it's all made on the same production line just packaged in a different box.

wanted to share this:

apparently there is a big difference between old style metal frame design vs single plastic frame design
