Very true Hschlick84.
I jusy bought yesterday TurtleWax Ice. It is a syenthic wax and works just as good. It is in a spray bottle and it can be used any where on the exterior of the car. Glasses, plastics, rubber molds, actually body of the car, and the headlights and tail lights. The great thing about it is that you can do it in the sun or dusk. Pretty great stuff

I use all Meguairs's products. I fully clay the car followed by a wax in the spring and summer. When I wash her regularly I use a two bucket method and keep all tire materials separate. I rinse first, wash a section at a time (top to bottom), and make sure that I wash her in the shade. Then I chamois her dry.

I only use the best, Dri Wash n Guard products,

www.waterlesscarwashproducts.com
Full disclosure, that is my site, and I do sell them.

However many members here have used them, and been very satisfied.

Check the site out, check out our photo section with some how to videos as well.

But my way is to clean the windows with Invisible Glass cleaner, spray Rain-X on a terry cloth, wipe the window straight up and down, sit for a min, then wipe off with a microfiber.
I've found that using the applicator pad after you get done with your car on a clean window works better than rain x and it lasts longer too.

Indeed I used to do that too, but when I needed the applicators for wax, it was a no no lol. I'll have to stock some extras.

I currently use the Meguiars wax but I plan on trying the Collinite Liquid Insulator. Once applied it makes it very easy to sheet water the next time you have it washed. I'll let you guys know how it compares when I have this applied.
