What’s the benefit or use of a 650mm vs 500mm vs regular OEM blades? Was buying replacements at an online Acura store and did not realize there are theae options which I had none in my prior vehicles (non-Acura). Thanks!

650mm = Driver's Side Wiper
500mm = Passenger Side Wiper
350mm = Rear Tailgate Wiper

Thank you! I did not realize that on the description.
Side question: For your vehicles, do you DIY, dealer or local shop maintenance and repair?

I DIY for almost everything other than that covered by warranty. Once that's over, I'll continue to DIY everything I can. I'm skilled enough to know how to most (fluids, filters, brakes,....), smart enough to know when best done by dealer (tranny, AC,...).

Be sure to order the inserts and not the whole wiper blade assembly.
Yeah just the inserts bc i had experience where Honda won't replace the entire assembly since some shop replaced it instead of replacing the inserts.

I wait until Costco has a sale and buy replacement blades for $5 each. Not as good as the OEM but who cares. It takes 30
Seconds to remove and replace a blade. I do it once a year when I replace the cabin filter.

Just go your local parts store, like Advance Auto, and pick up a set of Bosch Icon wipers, most auto parts stores will even install it for you for free; and the Bosch Icons are superior to OEM blades.
