I had a set of Bosch Icon blades that were still wiping just fine after nearly three years. I know you're supposed to change them once a year, but there was no reason for me to do so. At my last state inspection, the shop showed me a 1" tear in the passenger blade, so I let them put on a pair of cheapo blades. That was a poor decision. The normal-style compression blades freeze up in winter and don't wipe properly. I will be buying a new set of beam-style Bosch blades shortly.

Before I answer that question, let me check the lottery results tonight. :D
If you were to win the lottery, I highly doubt you'd be tooling around in a Colorado. Just sayin'... :act024:

Ian, I'd like to use the Bosch Icon blades. There appears to be a number of different Icon blades to choose from. Can you give me the correct Bosch numbers please for my 2017 Ridgeline RTL-E?
Thanks,
Stephen
I have an 07. I have no idea what blades are meant to be on your 17. If you go to any Walmart or auto parts store, they will either have an electronic gadget or at least a catalog of some sort to tell you the length of your blades. If all else fails, it should be in your owner's manual, too. If there's someone here with a G2, can you chime in as to your blade lengths to help?

Just as a bit of an update, I ended up leaving the cheapo blades on throughout that summer and fall of 15. I swapped them out for a set of RainX beam blades before that winter and I'm STILL using that set. They wipe well and don't streak. I also don't drive much and my truck spends its winter nights in a heated garage.
