For those of you who have changed their wiper blades have you gone OEM or someone like Bosch?

Sounds like Bosch it is. Are they a straight replacement or do you need to mess around with the adapter where the blade clips into the wiper arm.

They come with an adapter, but it is very easy to assemble and fit.

I've bought direct from BMW and the drivers side is already shuddering/noisy a little and its only a year old.
