BUY THREE THINGS FROM THIS RANGE AND ONLY PAY FOR THE MOST EXPENSIVE TWO. 1% QUIDCO TOO IF YOU PRE ORDER TO CHECK STOCK BEFORE PICKING UP

Ok Halfords is generally pretty expensive, but its open good hours, and at weekends. This deal has a potential to drop the price of some products by a third.

So although it wont beat buying in bulk from a factor, it will let you get antifreeze, rain-x, and screen wash (for example) with the cheapest one free.

whats the rain x like?

My wipers might need replacing, there is always a spotty film on the windscreen when it gets wet, the wipers cant wipe it off. The windscreen is only a few months old too, i cant seem to clean it off either.

Its pretty good as long as you keep applying it, and use more than you are meant to.

Sufficiently good that at 50MPH+ in really heavy rain you can switch off your wipers and the screen is clearer with them off.

There was a review of this type of product in Auto Express, and I think two came out better.

However, I have three of them to work through!!!! (think about it).

rain-x ruined my windscreen as when it wears off, then even wipers cant clear the screen properly!

Rain X is a great product that produces amazing results as stated above. No wipers needed when you are travelling at 45+mph.
It isn't great however when it is very light drizzle.
Worth the money overall I would say.

Auto Express said
"You either love or loathe rain repellents. Essen*tially, they coat your car’s glass in a super-smooth surface which is designed to allow water to simply bead and roll off. However, the problems start when you use your windscreen wipers, as the coating creates a mist behind the blade as it passes. Although this is irritating rather than dangerous, it puts some drivers off.

Even if you can’t live with a rain repellent on the screen, it has a place on other glass, especially during Britain’s wet winters, as it can dramatically improve visibility on wing mirrors or side and rear windows. And when the temperature drops, treated glass is far less likely to freeze as the super-slippery barrier forces water to roll off. If ice does form, it’s easier to remove, too.

This time of year is the perfect time to apply a rain repellent, but which one gives you a clear advantage? We put seven slippery customers through their paces in a real test of endurance.


Verdict
Both Rain-X and Halfords’ Rain Repellents worked brilliantly. They were easy to apply and gave excellent results in our tests. Halfords takes the top spot for supplying a larger bottle for a lower price, but Rain-X was a close second. Mer’s Rain Away follows in third. It performed reasonably and offers excellent value.
