Just ordered the piaa si tech. The m and f adapters will work. Piaa hasn’t updated their fit guide yet for the 2019.

Wha are the recommendations for the rear blade? I was kinda thinking using the Piaa Areo Vogue or Super Silicone 12in. Anyone know if either will fit?

The PIAA Si-Tech 16" & 26" blades (PN 97040 & 97065) fit our cars perfectly using the included adapters.

The Trico 16-17B and 26-17B also fit great and are what I used before putting the PIAA ones on today.

Keeping the window on the rear hatch clean seems futile so I haven't put any effort into changing that one from OEM.
So, I decided to order a pair of these PIAA wipers; the 26" went on easily, but the 16" did not include the "F-clip" needed to fit the car! it was 'old stock' from before this wiper arm was available. Now what am I supposed to do? I can tell you, don't trust Amazon to send you the right part you need!

Thanks @pogofx ! I went online to order some from my local parts store but they didn't have them in stock. Amazon did though.

Well, good luck with that! You'll probably get the same 16" blade I just returned because it was from before the F-clip they require was included......

Those should work. I copied those links from my previous Amazon order. They were identical to OEM when they arrived.

That's frustrating. I ordered mine through Amazon back in June and got the correct current version for both, but I've gotten plenty of obsolete and expired things shipped to me through Amazon in the past so can't say it's surprising.

The ones you linked worked perfect for me. Popped them on in no time. A year ago I had to fiddle with adapters/clips but these went on without any effort.

I read somewhere that the PIAA gets bulky w/ the adapters - sorta counter productive to all the aerodynamics claimed. Anyway, I just went and ordered OEM (since they've been upgraded). Also did a coating on the windshield which basically does what the PIAAs do, except, I still get the ruggedness with the rubber blades for snow/ice here.
