I heard you can make decent money by linking stuff from Amazon like this. When you link it, and someone clicks and buys it, you get some money from it. I don't think it's much, but if you have a thousand videos, it'd add up.

I purchased PIAA silicone wiper refills after viewing Scotty's review. He said silicone wipers work better and last longer. I disagree. I had to return the wipers for poor performance. The wipers did not wipe the water off the windshield and left streaks providing poor visibility. In my opinion, they're not safe to use while driving. I purchased rubber wiper refills instead.

Very interesting. Silicone was invented for sealing the windows on the space shuttle I believe. If it's good enough for outer space, it should be good enough for here on Earth.

Used PIAA silicon blades for years. Can’t beat them! You e gotta clean the windshield and then use their wipes to clean the windshield before you use them, but it makes them work better and last longer! It’s worth the money as they last 2x-3x as long as cheaper brands.

I coat my silicone wiper blades with 303 protectant. Since I started using 303 many years ago, I have never had to replace any wiper blades. On my 1991 Honda CRX, I drove for over 15 years and had over 800000 miles on it without having to replace the wiper blades. I first used Armor All for a few years since 303 was not available. When the 303 Aerospace protectant came out, I started using it and was quite a bit better as I did not have to apply it every week as I did with the Armor All....only once every three months. I also use 303 on my tires. I have had tires with over 175,000 miles on them with very little tread wear and still pliable enough for a smooth quiet ride....all because I used 303. I do not get any payment for recommending 303. This stuff just works.

I did bought PIAA Si-Tech blades. Rubbish. Terrible vibration when those are moving. So bad that blades actually contact to each other. Never have any that kind of problem in this car. Attachment to Wiper arm is loose and let blades move about inch top of the blades. And those did cost twice than normal blades. Worst blades in this car.

I could see why Scotty annoys some people but he seems to know what he’s talking about. I have seen where people disagree with him about certain things but if you listen to what he is saying it makes sense. For example, somebody got mad at him because he was putting MB (Mercedes Benz) down. I could understand their argument that there are great running MB’s all over Germany and elsewhere but Scotty was talking about Americans and their MB’s and I have to agree with him. There are always going to be exceptions to the rule but most of what he says seems to be truthful. Scotty’s personality and they way he talks has a lot to do with people disagreeing with him, I think, as he can come across as someone that some people just don’t like.

You can also install a "wiper up" to relieve pressure on the wiper blades hence prolonging its useful life. I recommend the Seiwa brand because it's made of good quality plastic.
