Pros of this product is that it really works and what is claimed is true. This product will sheet bead and the rain water will blow off at speed. Cons, removal of the coating from the glass can be a real pain but its not the end of the world. Do not get discouraged if you have some ipa handy and cotton terry towel handy it can help especially since the windshield has 3 coats going on there. My results were great and in my first rainfall i drove and the water on all the glass was whisked away by the speed of my subaru. I don't know how long it will last as its only been on there for about a month but it makes washing and drying the car during washing a lot easier. Id definitely get this on the glass as it can also save your life. If you cant see this size is good enough for one full car and maybe one windshield after.

This is the longest lasting and most effective glass repellant I've used to date. I applied it to my mini coopers windows last year, and its still holding up like it did on day one. I drive about 20k miles average a year too. Application can seem a little tricky at first, but just follow the directions on the labels. Hardly used my wipers during the time, only in extreme downpour conditions and heavy snow. I applied the entire. Bottle to all of my windows so I had several coats on each. If you do only one coat on all windows, you'll have plenty extra

I will recommend G1/G2 with only one caveat. In terms of application, G1 goes on very easily and is applied very much like all Gtechniq products: a few dabs on to a gauze pad, which is then applied directly on to the surface of the glass. The residue is allowed to haze over and then the product is removed with G2. In my experience, removal of G1 residue has been challenging at times either because too much G1 was applied or there was not enough G2. I am told that G1 residue can be removed with IPA, however. This is one drawback of the product. In terms of how G1 functions, it functions very well. I have had G1 on all my windows for over 1 year, and the beading and sheeting is still exceptional. After 1 year it is not as fantastic as it was after first application, but I find that around 30 mph, the water starts to blow off the windshield and what's left is easily removed by the wipers. I have noticed that after a year I am starting to see some vibration/skipping of the wiper blades that is helped by using some windshield washing fluid to lubricate the window. This may be an indication that it is time to reapply. Nevertheless, I would use this product again as I have found it to be very good and it stood the test of a very terrible Chicago winter (2013-2014).

I just put it on yesterday so I haven't seen any rain to comment on it effectiveness yet but I can say that this stuff is a pain in the you know what to remove. You can to scrub your window hard with a microfiber to remove it, even after using the residue removal stuff.

Great product. Easy application, and works great in the rain. Driving at night in heavy rain, never used the wipers until we came to a stop. The only downfall is it's very hard to remove. I'm hoping it was my error in my first application and can improve the second go around. If this really lasts the 30k mile boast then it's very much a must have product.
