Windshield wiper recommendation for 2000 S70?

Does anyone have some wisdom for wiper blade replacement? Mine are looking pretty rough, trying to avoid buying the wrong thing. Was considering these?

Ha that's hilarious about the iguana.

Re: How to evict the hamster living behind my glove box?

Aha thanks for the tips. Those led me to this, good ol Robert DIY:

How to evict the hamster living behind my glove box?

There's a noise behind my glovebox in my 2000 S70 that sounds like a hamster on a habitrail. It's not there all the time, and it happens even when the car isn't moving. It doesn't vary with engine RPM. When I first heard it I literally thought a mouse was stuck in my glove box. I don't imagine anyon...

Re: Sweet s70 turbo on Craigslist

I've never used Carfax before but always mean to. Possible to post the Carfax deets on that car if you have access?
