......does this stuff really make a big difference to the rain water removal?, do you need new wiper rubbers? any detrimental effect on Ali bodywork? any thoughts gratefully received, regards Nigel.

My experience is that it works well in heavy rain. Once turned the wipers off on a motorway in a BMW with Rain X and could see really well.


Seems to work less well in 'messy' rain and in light rain. Also I found it smeary but don't know if that's cos I applied it incorrectly.


It certainly reduces friction on glass (you can feel it) so you may even get a slight aerodynamic advantage too (switches off bull**** mode).


I'd keep it off paintwork/ali etc. Don't know if it would harm it, but would rather not find out...
