    Griots window polish review

    Unfortunately 3 weeks ago when I got my new 350Z it had already been sitting on the lot for about 5 months supposedly (according to the dealer)neither black nor base Z's sell well . The dealer was cool about it an even took a $100 of the price and gave me a free t-shirt and hat. It really wasn't a big deal I was able to get it all cleaned up with some polish and wax. However the windows had some nagging water spots (from rain I assume) that wouldn't go away. So I ordered Griots Window Polish (not to be confused with the lighter less abrasive Griots fine window polish). This stuff is absooutely amazing. Not only did it get all the water spots off, but I've never had car windows so clean. I give this stuff a 10/10. It's really a must for anyone who has trouble with dirty windows.

    yeah its really only needed if you have bad water spots/oxidation on your windows. If your cars garaged and taken care of properly you should never really need it.

    The you could definitely use it. The only down side is its somewhat overpriced, but it does work really well so I guess its worth it.

    It said it can be used with or without a buffer. I didn't use a buffer with it and it seemed to work just fine.

    I have some annoying water spots in the top corners of my front windshield. Maybe I should try this stuff? Where did you order?

    for light water spots they say to use the "fine window polish" for heavier spots use the "window polish"

    Do you think that this polish would be abrasive enough to work on windows pitted from winter driving?

    I think its pretty abrasive stuff. It might not get rid of it all together but it will help.

    Hmm that'd be nice if it did work. I'd opt for that route rather than replacing a windshield.
