1. You will be positively amazed at the performance of the product - the advertising is no exaggeration.

2. With Rain-x on your windshield you probably won't want to use your wipers (turn them off - no kidding). The only times that I use my wipers are at night when there is glare from oncoming headlights/streetlights (and even then it's a brief on and off) or when there is a light drizzle mixed with road grime.

3. The "windshield wax" may not be available anymore, but is far superior to the "original" rain-x. The wax is easily visible when applied (the original is as clear as water, and hard to see). The wax also buffs off without streaking with very little effort - the original streaks badly, and takes all day to buff out (I don't think you ever do get rid of all of the streaking). Unfortunately, I think the "wax" is off of the market because people didn't read the instructions: If you wipe it off with a damp cloth before buffing (per directions), it is simple and effective. If you don't wipe if off with a wet cloth before buffing, it creates lots of soft eraser-like crumbs to dust off of your car - the wax will perform just as well, it's just less convenient to use if you don't follow the instructions.

4. If you know where I can find rain-x windshield "wax" please let me know - I want more.
