Have any of you upgraded the stock wipers to silicon? I have the PIAA silicons on my FJ Cruiser and love them...just not sure anyone has the size for Acadias.

It seems to me that when the salesman was going on about all the great features of our car, he brought up the point that the wiper blades were silicone...?

Bosch may make them, but they don't seem to be listed in the Bosch replacement catalog online. Nor have I found them listed in any other manufacturer's frameless catalog . The only places I have found them are from GM - either the dealer or a GM parts supplier such as gmpartsdirect.com. That will probably change in the future as the frameless blades are becoming more popular.
