I know someone who used one for 2 extra jets on a mk 3 directed to the left aimed directly for hairdressers in soft tops :mrgreen:

It's here, I'm going to fit it to the Focus which already has heated jets, and a heated screen, so in theory, it will always work.

I need to find the heated jets for the Mk7, and fit those, before fitting another one to this, or maybe I'll fit the budget version instead :lol:

Good stuff that, works a bit like Rain C as well, the rain beads and runs up the screen at motorway speeds, don’t even need the wipers!

This https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/gtechniq ... ealant-kit is good too, it’s lasted 18months so far and seems to work at lower speeds than Rain X etc

Looks good :D
How far does it go Mike, i.e. is 15ml only enough for one screen? How often do you need to apply it?

I’ve done two windscreens and four side windows and there’s still some left. Gtech seem to be quite generous in their estimations.

Hotshot is performing well, although the Prestone screen wash is the colour of piss and makes it look like someone has relieved themselves on my bonnet. Yellow snow :mrgreen:

You’d think there’d be more room under a Volvo bonnet than a Connect.
