The Bosch wiper blades were OEM on my 9-3, and they may be OEM on the 9-5 too, but they don't seem to be branded as Bosch. During the summer time, I've had excellent results with the OEM wipers on both my 9-3 and 9-5. However, the wipers do need re-stripping every year (usually), and they don't work quite as well when they are re-stripped. During the winter time, I've had the best results with getting the "sleeved" wiper blades from Canadian Tire, even though the driver's side blade doesn't have that little "wind spoiler" on it. I guess the extra weight of the sleeved blade serves to keep it well on the windscreen.
