Default Weather strips

The weather strips that go down the a pillar to the hood cowl, where the wipers sit,on my 08 are cracking at the bottom by where the wiper meets the a pillar.
Has anyone replaced these or have a price for them?

Mine are cracked even though my car is garage kept with 45k on it. Eventually I'll bite the bullet and buy new ones.
Kinda annoying but if that's the biggest problem the car has had it's also hard to complain.

I noticed this on my mine as well. I always park in a garage even when I am at work. However, I can't say what the previous owners situation was.

Is it held on by glue or does it slide in and out of a crevice? In other words DIY instructions/pics. Seems like an easy fix but just want to make sure.

Nevermind. Looked at the picture on sewell. Held by tabs but it says recommend replace tabs too. Even though it says ISx50 06-13, we are assuming it works for the F?

Would also like to see pics of the cracks. Mine has a small crack on each side right at the base, but everything else looks perfect. It doesn't look like worth $100 to fix unless I'm putting in a new windshield (which would be a good idea - mine is very pitted and has lots of tiny starbursts at night).

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.
