My hope is to just replace the inserts every 6 months. I guess when winter comes around we'll see if I made the right decision!

I updated the main post with prices.
This thread also has the benefit of saving the parts numbers. I had originally
just looked for the correct size inserts and found the part number. When I took
it to the dealership, he could tell I pulled them off a fit

Edit: Re read your post. I'm hoping this is a permanent arm. It would be nice.
