    Rained yesterday and found out my wiper blades are wrecked. Searching for replacements. Seems like the stock OE blade is a hybrid. Anyone using newer style "beam" blades with any success? Silicon or rubber blades?

    I put some beam style Rain-X blades on my wife's car and I really don't feel like they work that well. Ok on the up swipe and poor on the return i.e. leave a trail of droplets. Implies that they don't have even or sufficient pressure across the windshield.

    I searched the forums and did not see any recent recommendations for Ferrari's. Obviously concerned that they might lift with increased speed (up to a point in the rain).

    For reference:
    Front driver's blade is 28"
    Front passenger's blade is 17"
    Rear blade 16" (option on some FFs)

    I don’t like the look of the bulky adapters on the aftermarket beam blades, the original hybrid looks best to me. If you want the original but don’t want to pay Ferrari prices, they are Denso brand and you can find them online.
    LH - Denso 160-3128
    RH - Denso 160-3117

    If you really want to save money, you can buy just the rubber insert. Toyota uses the same wiper brand for many of their cars, I found that the 2015 Toyota Sienna uses the exact same 28” Denso wiper and the Toyota parts desk will sell you just the rubber insert. I think the insert was around $5 from Toyota. I haven’t found a Toyota that uses a 17” Denso.

    Very helpful. Think I will get the Denso versions as you advised. Reviews are not great for the beam style particularly for longer lengths.

    I haven’t found a car with a 17” Denso yet so that I could just buy the insert, only the 28”. The part numbers I posted above are for the whole wiper assembly and if you search for those p/n’s online you will find it for sale from various vendors and not too expensive.
