It looks like one long wiper blade as opposed to two in this video. Anyone disagree?
If this is true that is terrible. I should be able to replace a wiper in 5 minutes. I should not have to special order it.

Wait until you try to find spark plugs

I think I might have to see if I can buy a spare LAWB (Long Ass Wiper Blade) at the delivery center when I pick up my CT!

Why would I do that? The car has no spark plugs. It does however have a windshield wiper that will need replacing at some point.
you will need to order blinker fluid anyways, just order them together😉

Have you checked out the "Tesla" aisle at Autozone? They have washer fluid, fuzzy dice, and those little tree fresheners. But that's about it. 🤷‍♂️

Even for my mundane cars, I buy online at wipers123.com.

I special order blades for my Mercedes because typical auto store blades are designed to use various interface adapters to work with different arm designs; they never work as well as OEM design parts. I keep a set on hand and reorder when I use the on hand set. “Special ordering” is easier and takes less time than driving a mile to my local Autozone.

I can't say I've ever changed the wipers on a Mercedes, but the OEM vs the blades I can buy at O'Reilly's, AutoZone, etc seem to work just as well on every vehicle I have used.

Yep, that's where I buy the blades for my Yukon, too.

Maybe after a few years of production and a million Cybertrucks on the road, we'll be able to find OEM-style BAW blades at NAPA!

I have had the original wipers on my M3 for 5 years. Not one streak shows when needed, still great. They sure know how to make/source them haha. I haven’t had to change ANYTHING on my M3, not brakes, never had to refill wiper fluid either. It’s crazy. 100,000 miles. Actually, Only the stock tires, which lasted me 80k miles. I live in SoCal, so mostly highway and no crazy weather.
