I am thinking of getting Bosch Clear Advantage or Evolution
CA will be 30 bucks for all 3.
Evolution will be 35 for all 3 - 2 Evolution with rear CA.

I think I will go with this. I loved Costco for the good quality wipers, may have to ask some friends if there are Michelins for $16-17 a pair.
Adapters / Connectors for Gen1 should be ok as eBay says it will fit!

Using Aero Blades via Amazon (or Ebay). Pretty good for the CX-5 imho. Stacks up well in video posted.

Kaps^ I went with Aero over the Bosch Clear Advantage due to fitment issues in the Amazon reviewes for Mazdas. No fitment issue for the Aeros though!

I decided to try the Bosch Clear Advantage. Watched a video review of some guy testing a variety (from post #42 above). Bought all three on Amazon. Been quite happy. Looks like the wiper arm (for the front two) has a taller stand off which I would think cause a little more spring pressure from the wiper arm. Was able put them directly onto the car without changing any adapters. Back window wiper is different of course.

Have you had an opportunity to try them out in cold snowy or sleety conditions?

I'm in Colorado. So far so good. I will admit the weather has been mostly nice and the snow we're getting yet, at this point, is heavy wet snow. I also park my car in a garage overnight. I think this design is more flexible than the OEM ones and easier to clear off any ice/snow.

I have the PIAA wiper blades. No streaking whatsoever.

I purchased PIAA super Silicone Wiper Blades last year. Made in Japan. High quality. I FINALLY got to test it yesterday during rain. Wow. No streaking, perfect fitment, and I believe you can buy replacement silicone inserts as well.

Just got in front wipers yesterday. The OEM Denso's were icing up too much. Went back to my old standby : ANCO Winter blades. Unlike some other 'winter' blades these have the linkage totally enclosed with rubber with only the rubber wiping edge exposed. Cheap too, only about $10 each. Tried beam type blades once but marginal wiping in center as if it didn't conform to windshield in that portion.

On the subject of wipers I see people extending them straight out from the windshield. If you've ever had wipers lift off the windshield due to weak springs (stretched) you may not want to do this.
