    They fit decently on the first GEN, not perfect but definitely not a bad fitment either. The gloss black finish is nice too. They do have amazing wind buffeting reduction capabilities, 100mph and it’s buffet free with both windows all the way down. Little miracle workers!

    I’m so glad so many people are benefiting from this simple little mod! I still have my original wiper blade version on and have seen speeds up to 170mph with no buffeting.

    Re: NO more wind buffeting -- Best $30 and 30 minutes to spend on your R8!!!

    It saddens me to report that the TRICO Flex blade is no longer manufactured as a solid piece. It’s now a hollow slide-on plastic shell. May work the same at first, but probably won’t stick as long as the old ones since there’s a lot less surface area for the tape. Does anyone have any other wiper types with a solid aero piece they have used?

    Correction to previous post...

    Found the correct wiper blade. Same part number, same description on the box, but aero piece is solid instead of hollow. Must get the wiper with the solid orange and black label - no silver where the length is written (see previous post). Looking forward to no wind buffeting!

    MAR8 mod-1 installed and tested! Works like a champ!

    I think it looks as OEM as any other accessory - mostly because my triangles are matte finish. Might be slightly more noticeable on gloss or carbon. Definitely a must-have mod either way. Thanks Mike!

    You wouldn't happen to have a link to purchase for the orange colored correct box? Thanks in advance!

    I picked them up at my local Advance Auto Parts store. They are on Amazon, but the ones you want (without the silver on the end of the label) look like they are only offered as a package with two blades based on the photos. I opened the package and pulled the aero piece off right at the counter to make sure I had the right one (the second time).
