Smile SL R230 Wipers - great design

Having 10 " of rain in 4 days in Asheville created need to replace wipers on my SL65. Rain to continue all week...

Bought new ones at dealer and installed before I left in about 3 minutes...easier than I thought it would be with my first Benz.....

Have to say, easiest pair of wipers I have ever changed including Bosch ICON, which are easy, who also may make the original equipment MB wipers for this car because they look very similar in blade design, etc......

I lifted wiper assembly up, then just turned the wiper blade upside down, slid it off its "pin" and reinstalled new one sliding it on the pin and turned blade upright to face window tools required, no snaps, clips to disengage or anything.....really nice system......

Price at dealer was $ 20.00 each after 15 % MB Club discount....less expensive than the $ 23.00 ICONS at Advanced Auto Parts,etc...thought it would be more....
