    A trick that makes your wipers last and make them work alot better is to put Rain-X on the blades itself. You take off all the crud but then you give it the squeaky clean finish

    Can't really say.....I haven't tried them. I had a friend that tried the regular RX blades, not the latitudes, and he hated them so, yeah can't say for sure how they'd compare since I haven't owned both.

    Bosch regular blades are better, trust me, I had the regular weatherbeaters by rain-x and man they were SHIT, they squeaked or squreeched and smeared and blured the windsheild, thats when i had enough lol
    The latitudes in my opinion are the best kind of Blade for that style of blades (thats my personal opinion) but bosch makes better regular blades, my brother has bosch and has not complained yet
