^ I don't have to worry about that.

nothing today, but tomorrow I'm going to wash/wax/clean for the first time this summer. I've been to car washes all winter and spring because I've been living in the dorms. I'm also going to try to get all of the pits out of the rims and restore the headlight lenses too. Should be looking brand new

What's the code number for the blades? I'm always turned away from places saying they don't carry any for the E46, and the dealership is a rip-off

Well they're not cheap, but I used the bosch icons. 424A for driver side, 419B for passenger side. Cost me about $50 total =/. My previous set lasted me about 2 years though, and probably would've lasted longer if the guy who installed my windshield didn't mess up the mounting clips.

Thats what I have, they are ok but pop in and out of the clip when I run them continuously. Still havent figured out how to bend the clip to get them to stay in. They look sweet sitting on the windshield though...lol.
