By mistake, I applied Final Coat on all my glass surfaces including my Panoramic Roof, (Duh!!). It was left in the garage and then I tried to strip it all off with Gyeon Q2M Prep, but when that proved to be not strong enough I used windex and buffed the silicone away. Nice 2hr mistake.

On all the windows, during the application of VG1 Window Coat at about 70 degrees, I found that if I did too big of a patch, it would dry and not buff out unless I applied more product. So the smaller ft x ft with a quick buff off worked best for me.

As for the Panoramic Roof, however, something weird happened. After application, I had the impression that I had a million pits in the glass? It being a relatively "new" car, I wasn't sure if that was the case or not. With lights off while using a LED flashlight, I ended up taking a razor scraper and peeled off the millions of spots that accumulated on all the black glass wiping it off after almost every pass. This revealed the smooth glass underneath.

Seems to do a good job during the rain but its only been a short time so can't say too much yet. Easy to apply. Only disappointment is the sprayer came broken so it made the application process a little more challenging.

Unlike some of the reviews, I found this easy to apply and remove after two minutes of rest time. Still need to see how performs in the rain.

I found this to be the single most difficult coating I've used. This flashed in 20-30 seconds, not 2 minutes. Very very difficult to get off. Basically, I had to go back over spots and reapply the product then wipe immediately, like 5-10 seconds.

I bought this windshield hydrophobic coating to use instead of the Gtechniq version as the Gtechniq version is very labor intensive to put on and take off. In my garage, I polished the windshield with glass polisher and a white foam pad. Next I used carPro's eraser to take off any remaining oils on the windshield. Finally I put on the VG1 product. Let it sit for 2 minutes then took it off. Removal was very difficult, I put on two additional coats.

3 days later it rained and I tested out the product. It performed ok, but I did have some judder with the wipers when only a mist was on the windshield. Honestly I will use Gtechniq in the future and will probably polish off this VG1. It's a pretty poor performer.

The first time I used a coating for my windows, I used Gtechniq G1. It worked very well. Over time, however, I began to notice skipping of the wiper blades. I was still getting excellent protection from G1, but the skipping was really annoying me. I had to put a sealant over the coating just to eliminate the skipping. After 1 year went by, I polished the glass again and applied 22PLE to the windows. What i noticed was the same level of protection -- extreme beading, sheeting and water blowing off the glass when going about 35 mph (even less!). However, there was no skipping! It's been nearly 1 year with 22PLE, and it is still going strong without any skipping. This summer, I plan to correct the paint and redo the windows, and I'm positive I'll be using 22PLE again. Definitely recommend this product and I would buy this again.

Great product. A little difficult to use but compared to other coatings out there it is much more user friendly. Just a tad more difficulty in use compared to aquapel but great results and last longer!

I bought this product because I wanted something that would last longer than Rain-X and was easier to apply than Gtechniq Clear Vision Smart Glass. Applying was very easy and a little product went a long way. It took about 1 minute before I buffed it off and I had no problem with left over residue. I do this on my client's windows as a thank you for your continued business and it is one of the first things they tell me when they see me again. I have had the product on my personal car for about a month and it works great in the rain. I started to notice results around 40mph and do not have to use my wipers as frequently. I have also noticed my windshield also has stayed cleaner longer. For the price, easy of use, and great results, I highly recommend this product.
