    Better vision in the rain

    My new WRX has a new best friend. It is RAIN X. Rain X can be put on any window surface and it will send the water beading off. I had never heard of this product until a few days ago. I put it on yesterday and drove in the rain today. I almost didn't even have to use the wipers at all.

    If you have never used it you put it on like wax. Then polish it off.

    This product sure helped in the rain. I think you can buy it at any auto parts store.

    I have Rain-X'd every vehicle I own. It awesome. It even helps in the winter with snow and ice, being it doesn't stick so well so it is easier to scrape off. Buy it. Use it. You'll love it.

    I don't know if Rain-X still make the interior formula that used to come in a black bottle and stated it'd keep interior windows from fogging. That is to be avoided at all costs! The yellow stuff is OK but nowadays sprays are available that'll do the same thing yet not require that much rubbing, if at all (I used to spray then use the wipers to wipe off, no problems).

    fog stuff is still around but i did not have any luck with it when I used it the other day. I used the rainx on all of the windowns and mirrors and worked like a charm.

    Same here. Never drive without it. Be sure to use it on the side & back windows as well. I have been using it for many years.

    The bottle that I bought cost about $10.
    With the small amout used for each window this bottle should last me for years.
