thanks Bob, i'm a big fan of rainx actually...that's about the only thing that made the drive bearable-it was nice to have the water roll right off-quickly. i heard somewhere that rainx isn't good for the windshield. both hubby and i haven't had any problems with it and about the only time we did have a problem was when we didn't use it. of course that could have had something to do with the poor window replacement job the glass shop did, but was a 900 at the time, and i know they had difficulty replacing the glass...
