EXT: Upgrading Wiper blades from newer Hondas

I've had this idea for a while now. It seems like it's working well.
I like the beam style of blade. It seems to wipe and perform better.
But, Rain X or Bosch run $20 each, so $40 every time you want new blades.
After some research, I realized that the newer Hondas had this I beam style, with replaceable inserts. I had the blades leftover from my moms old 08 Accord, and the passenger side works well.

Le video:

Drivers side:
76620-SLN-A11 for the "beam" $27.88 Rubber included, good to go
76622-SLN-ALL for the "rubber" $5.75

Passenger side:
76630-TA0-A01 for the "beam" $free, already had it
76632-TA0-A01 for the "rubber blade" $5.28

I'm particularly proud of this one. Nice and cheap and a good upgrade.
37.5 MPG, AC on, cruising at 80.
30.0 MPG, AC on, aggressively driving around 90.
27.5 MPG, no AC, cruising at 90 with occasional gridlock. 40 degrees Fahrenheit

Lots of DIY videos specifically for our car

Get some awesome wipers! <-- It's a DIY
