    I thought Tesla replaces these as needed as part of the service for free?

    They do as part of the Annual Service. But the stock ones didn't do me any good, after applying RainX on my windscreen they had issues with chattering as they wiped.

    This sounds interesting, seems like they offer replacement blades too. Which ones did you order for your S ?

    I always just got the "Si-Tech" blades as being slightly more affordable (still like $38-$40 per blade! :) ), however i notice that they offer the "Aero Vogue" option which is more aerodynamic and reduces wind chatter...

    Here's the link: PIAA | Wiper Blades

    edit: Apparantly only the "Si-Tech" blades work as shown in the pdf here: http://www.piaa.com/Shared/applications/2016-PIAA-Wiper-Application-Guide.pdf

    seems like the Aero Voque option is not available for the MS. Only si tech. is that what you have ?

    Agreed. Put these on both our M-S's and they are fantastic. Far superior to the OEM blades, with the exact same look.

    Correct, I've only used the "Si-Tech" option and didn't see much need for the "Aero Vogue" version...
