    Best Glass Coating?

    I've always used rainx and generally don't have an issue. Sometimes I see some fogging but it's rare and I notice it also can be noisy with my wipers. It doesn't last more than a month really and I've been in search of a longer lasting replacement.

    None of the coatings in the store seem to get universally good ratings, aquapel maybe the longest lasting, but expensive considering only single use applicator.

    I’ve been happy with the PBL Glass coating. Easy to use and holds up well.

    I use McKee's but I also prep the glass thoroughly. I use clay and Griots polish and McKees Glass Restorer (using DA) prior to McKees Glass Coating. Once I stopped cutting corners and did a thorough job the coating has been really good. If your glass has any flaws whatsoever any coating is going to be disappointing in my experience.

    that's good advice. I'm already planning on getting some polish as I've never polished my windows... and honestly they look great so I never bothered. Claying them too is now taking it to another level haha. What a disease this is...

    Optimum Ooti-glass has been the best for me. 6-12 months depending on climate, maybe longer. Optimum actually has a glass cleaner which adds to the protection also. Actually I believe if you use the cleaner on a regular basis it will give you good protection on its own.

    I agree with everything above. Clay, polish with something like McKee’s Glass Restorer and use the PBL Glass Coating. Then forget about your windows other than basic cleaning for a long time.

    Re: Best Glass Coating?

    I have the Gyeon View on one car and the Dr Beasley’s pro glass coat on another. Prep is key with any coating for sure. I don’t like that Gyeon requires that you put some product on your wiper blades....what if you change them out but have no more product? Stuck with skipping wipers I guess. The Dr Beasley’s is good, in action it acts like rainX but better. Dr Beasley’s also has a maintenance product that goes into your washer fluid reservoir which helps keep the coating fresh. I like that part of that one.

    I've gotten a year out of Aquapel when applied with good prep. That makes the cost seem pretty reasonable to me.

    I have had great results with McKees37 Glass Coating. As others have stated I always clay and prep with McKees37 Coating Prep Polish.

    For ease of use go with McKee's. Optimum is good but requires a little more work when removing. Not to mention it eats foam pads even after they are cleaned. It will perform a bit better than McKee's.

    CarPro FlybyForte is also straight forward to use. Apply and let it flash off. No need to buff off any residue.
