I have found that a light coat of rainx helps out some.. mostly at night.. but it gets those annoying suckers off of the blue mirrors rather nicely...

BTW There is a wash and detail forum that should be rather helpful for you....

This topic might be better answered in that forum... I say a move would help....

Good Luck

Les

New to the forum. 2nd time BMW owner:
2001 330Cic - white with tan interior - sport pkg
now 2003 330i - Orient with grey interior - sport pkg - bought it 3 days ago. Traded my 2003 C240 mercedes. Love these cars!


As for window spotting, I have the same problem - its due to minerals in the water.
I use "Invisible Glass" by Stoner....available at any autoparts store. I buy mine at Autozone. Great stuff and truly makes the glass so transparent. I have on occasion had to check to see if my side windows were up or down. Different story on the front windshield due to pits - sand - highway debris, etc.

Happy cleaning.
John

if you don't mind the smell, cheaper version is to use Vinegar; it's worked for me in getting those really hard to remove water stains off my windshield.

Agreed, and the smell can be covered up with regular glass cleaner or Stoners.....The acids in the vinegar will dissolve the lime deposits...

another vote for a Vinegar Bath. Vinegar will also remove most water spots on the paint as well.

If you cant remove them with a glass cleaner such as Stoners (brilliant product btw) then use any car polish, use it on the glass the same way you would on the paint.

I'd use a polish with some cut in it.

but as a last resort, a bathroom clean which has been designed to remove limescale will get it off easily... but keep it away from the rubbers and the paintwork.

Ok, I have tried MANY products to have spotless windows, all kinds of glass cleaners, specail cloths, microfiber,professional products (not the kind anyone can buy), etc ... But the ONLY thing I found that worked is a cloth made by Black Magic made specially to clean glass. All you'll need to do is, put the cloth in warm water, dry it by hand, and clean your glass with it.
