Hi all,
Just read about this
https://www.halfordsautocentres.com/car ... windscreen

looks interesting and I'm interested in giving it a go (although I hope I don't get charged for 2 windscreens! :bounce: )
My wipers are so lame, I use Rain-x all the time but this seems more effective from what I've read.
Anybody ever tried it or had any experience?

It is very good, and seems to last a lot longer than rain-x. I bought one applicator which was enough for the front windows, less than a tenner delivered from eBay iirc.

So it’s £9.99 to buy it off ebay, or £25 to get Halfords to put it on for you?

I’m certainly interested at a tenner rain-x is great but doesn’t last long.

Rain-x do an antifog for the inside too which was a game changer for me, makes wet weather visibility so much better, particularly on the side windows where the heater doesn’t get to.

So how hard is it to apply it yourself?
