Discovery about windshield wipers

Hey everyone, yesterday I installed the Bosch wipers from Autohausaz they are supposed to be the same as OEM. But when I put them on the passenger side one didnt sit flush against the window, there was about 3 inches of the wiper off the window. I was confused but I said screw it and walked away from the issue. Today when I went out to my car I noticed that the wiper is almost completely flush with the window maybe 1/4 of an inch off, now a few hours later it is completely flush!

So if anyone is experiences this with new wipers do not do anything right away it should mold into place. Sorry if this is common sense just though I'd share as I couldn't find it anywhere on the forums.

Oh and e46 are self healing..

No E46's are not self healing unfortunately LMAO. I have referred to my car as a German version of Christine and call her Christalle. I wish she would self heal instead of being a high maintenance little spoiled ***** sometimes. Thank god my girlfriend is so the opposite.
