Kammler, good advice. Not many people know of this product, and it is a great one for what it is intended for.

This product looks like it is the answer to my prayers - I hate having dirty glass on any of our cars! Gary - does it have your reccomendation? If so I will not hesitate to get it.

I bought the complete kit and I've used it a couple times. It works well and now I've noticed very few water spots since. It is kind of a hassle to use but the results are worth it.

Hey GTsteve... is it better than the RainX products. I've used rainX for a few years and love it.

I've also used RainX. I think that the 3 part Diamondite system fits in a completely different catagory than RainX. This system will remove the spots and contamination which RainX does not. The final product is advertised as a "chip guard" that is supposed to resist rock chips. I know that RainX does not make that claim.

RainX actually works better at repelling water which is what it is designed to do. I may try putting RainX over the Diamonite when it starts raining this winter. (do you believe that . . . no rain in the Northwest).

Diamondite has worked as advertised for me.

Not trying to be a smarty pants but I find it hard to believe that anything will prevent rock chips

Here is the Diamondite site. Go here and read their claims and then you can draw your own conclusions.

I don't believe everything I hear or read either. That is why I decided to try it myself and see the results first hand. So far so good like I said.

Like Steve says, it is a little difficult to use, but I do recommend it for this problem. I have had cars with severe water spots, and even clay bar would not remove it. This stuff did. Also like Steve says, after you clean/remove you should seal the glass. If you look at glass under the micro scope is far from smooth. It looks like the moon, rough surface that can (and does) trap dirt particles. I use a sealer that I think is better than rain X, I buy it in gallons, and get a pro discount, so I can save you some money if you want to try some. It was formulated for cars in volcanic ash areas to seal the glass, and keep the ash from etching the glass. I found it to be great stuff. Gary
