You can get the refills you need at Advance Auto or even on Amazon. You'll need Trico 47-800 8mm for the driver's side and Trico 47-600 6mm for the passenger side. This is the cheapest and best way to go imo, and this is from many years and MANY different brands and types of blades.
I did this on my first replacement and kept the OEM wing on the drivers side. Doesn't work nearly as well as the PIAA Forza Hybrid Silicone blades. The aero on their units blows away that craptastic wing Subaru stuck on there. Pricey option with the PIAAs but they work better than anything I've used (Bosch, RainX etc).
