Default Dangerous rain is dangerous!

Hi guys!

Iíve moved to south east Asia (Singapore to be accurate) and you should see the rain hereÖ If youíve watched Forrest Gump and you remember the part in VietnamÖ well thatís pretty much accurate.

The problem with the rain is that it pours so much that it makes it actually dangerous to drive because the wipers are not be enough.

So Iíve heard about these water repelling coatings, but Iíve got no experience on it and being new to Singapore also means that I donít know who to ask, thatís why Iím asking you today.

Do you guys have any products that work for a long time (I donít want to have to reapply it every weekÖ) and that does a decent job at pushing the rain out of my windscreen?

I feel you brother, I lived from 2013 to 2017 in Asia and the rain there is no joke...

During my stay I tried quite a few of them from Rain-X to virtually every type of waxes available on the market and even a few coatings...
The best results I ever got were obviously with pro-applied coatings...
There is one I really wanted to try because it was a local product but I had to go back home so it was not worth applying... It is a window coating developed by IGL.
They claim that it works up to 1 year even under this type of climate and, god, if this is true that's amazing...
Please pick up my quest to find the perfect protection against rain where I left it ahahah

More seriously, the standard proven method is to seal it and wax it, I don't have any particular recommendation regarding the brand but there is no way you can have something that works more than a couple of month...

I've also heard about people pouring sealant or other protectant in the windshield washer tank! Never tried and I don't think it will provide good results but well maybe worth a shot.
