Same here, they work.
They work, but the previous set fit better. The passenger side needs to be curved to sit properly. Since the Icons aren't curved, the last ~3" of the wiper blade don't actually touch the glass. You can see how the oem passenger side blade is not straight.

Lol, I only did the drivers side as that's all I needed at the time. Now I need the passenger side and noticed it was curved (wtf) who sells a curved blade?

Two nice days in a row finally motivated me to take both the 911 and the Mini-S out for a good warm-up and exercise period. Stopped to get a little quality 91 Octane premium fuel with NO ethanol at the local Hy-Vee. For the first time ever, I had fuel burp back out of the filler neck. Good thing I always carry a bag of microfibers and some cleaner / detail spray. :evil:

Tomorrow the winter weather advisory starts: We went from 55 at 2 PM down to 32 in about 90 minutes. It’ll be 14 in the morning with snow starting around noon – 3-6” forecasted. More Saturday night. Clearing Sunday, then another storm early next week. I guess it was nice to have a brief window to get the non-daily-drivers out for a drive. Hell, I even ran the lawn mower for a while to keep it going. :lol:

So Frunkenstein...don't be in too big a hurry to get back to KC. :lol:

My ‘99 is Vesuvius Gray Metallic- which supposedly was a special order color back then. It gets a lot of comments & seems to change color with the light. It looks different in daylight, overcast, fluorescent lights, etc.
