    Duxback - Has anybody got any experience with this stuff?

    Was scouting about the net and came across this stuff for car windows.

    Has anybody used it? Any good?

    Seems quite pricey for the length of life it provides. I've seen it in someone's sig with S3, but can't remember who.

    I use Rain-X, and whilst it's unlikely to be quite so effective as this product it still provided better visibility than a regular screen.

    Duxback lasts ages, also stops ice sticking to glass. Audi just had all windows (Double Dux) done and is my 4th car to have it applied to. Water beads around 30mph, ensure when applied it doesnt smear otherwise it will need reapplying, as per Duxback Cust Service (outstanding BTW)

    Halfords Autocentres (was Nationwide) applied mine at Harrogate.

    Can't fault it despite cost, Dad's car is still beading well over a year later.

    Gets my vote over Rain-X & rain wizzard etc far better product.

    You will also need the pretreatment glass cleaner from Duxback & an experienced techie to apply it. It doesn't go on as easy as Rain-X and really needs an experienced hand to get the best results.... Spoken from someone who tried very carefully and still failed. So now you know.

    Used it on mine, very good product. If your driving over 40mph or so you rarely need to use the wipers.

    When I had the Audi done a younger guy applied it and wasn't done correctly so Duxback offered to cover costs but Halfords redid the whole car FOC. They blamed cold weather & and residual gunk on the windows from the factory as they'd never treated a car with 12 miles on the clock before. Personally I think it was down to how it was applied, after chatting with Duxback & the more experienced guy who had done my old V50 & Dad's car.

    I used what we called in the aviation industry - Repcon. Fantastic product with no fling off, no smeering and was guaranteed to remain on fast jet windscreens for months. If it was good at 500mph in the air then it was perfect for all driving conditions. I think I may have some left in my garage.

    Dunno about you but don't think my A3 could muster 500mph Also at altitude you ain't gonna get much road grime flicked up from the fast jet in front.
