    Self cleaning car - all my prayers have been answered

    After wasting numerous years of my life that I'll never get back in the pursuit of a clean car, it finally looks like the boffins at Nissan have come up with a hydrophobic coating that will repel the majority of crap the filthy British roads and countryside can throw at them.
