Windshield Wipers

Of all the parts of my car that I feel comfortable installing, windshield wipers give me the most joy.

Actually I would say I have a love/hate relationship with my windshield wipers. They’re never as good as the first day you get them. A slow, downward trajectory, like riding a slip’n’slide that isn’t wet enough.

However, I have great hope for my recent wiper purchase. Instead of going for the seemingly generic brand they sell at Checker Auto Parts, I spent an extra $10 each for the Bosch Icon wipers. I am in wiper heaven.

They could  be described as a slightly al dente spaghetti noodle. That, in and of itself is cool, because there is none of the typical metal bracket features. Just a sleek rubber and plastic noodle.

Minnesota winters are tough though, so I’m withholding final judgment until the snow flies. But so far, my new windshield noodle friends are living up to their billing.
