Bosch has always made great quality products.Make sure they are actually for an 08 Civic Si as they dont take regular windshield wiper blades.And what kind of person gives windsheild wiper blades as a present for Valentines day.Here is your best bet. Honda Factory Replacement wiper blades.

Bosch Icons are really good. I bought some myself and i gota say it really cleans everything off the window with little or no streaks at all. The newer civics window wipers are also some what similar to the Bosch Icons.

I've used both and both are good although the Rain-X seemed to last a little longer. After awhile the Icon's started to show dozens of really thin streaks but the Rain-X seemed to last a couple of months longer before doing that. Still better then regular wipers that start to show those really thick annoying streaks when they wear out.You may want to look at a wiper called Valeo as well. The same type of wipers but a little cheaper. I have these on now and they work just as well.All of them worked well in the snow.
