Given how poor the windscreen wipers/jets are on a series Landy, I tried the old Rain X I had left over from my old MX5 days.

The result is a significant improvement in wet weather, again would highly recommend it, and think it actually improves safety.

All you do is clean the windows, vinegar and newspaper will work!, get them dried off, apply the Rain X liberally (windscreen will look smeary/greasy), leave it until dry, buff off with a soft cloth.

Not too sure how long it will last, but on the MX5 I used to apply it every month over winter, and over the summer once every 3months or so (or whenever you get it cleaned Smile) was

Used it today, and didnít need to use the wipers, the rain water just beeded off.

Don't use the flat Series wiper blades. I use sprung ones and they do a much better job. I got them from P.A. Blanchard.
