Hey guys, I too just realized that the new wiper arm on my 2010 was dealership only. I'm pissed because i went out and bought Pilot Chrome Wipers for the car before i realized the blade wouldn't fit. Do you guys know any other companies that make chrome wiper blades that will fit my I & L Model wiper arms? Thanks

Any chance you traded in a Honda or a Subaru for your Stang...

I can attest that the Motorcraft blades they are selling are not the same exact ones that originally came with my 2008. They work, but are a little different.

Is that like buying Motorcraft gas, having Motorcraft air put in your tires and Motorcraft windshield washer fluid put in the reservoir? I could afford to have a dealership charge me ridiculous $$ for parts with their label slapped on them but some things are simply... ridiculous.
