Something else about Rainx, at least here in south FL, is the stuff would jell up on a regular basis. No factory support so just stopped selling it.

Wanted to try but back when I was using Simoniz and asked a Simoniz rep about it with respect to comparing it to rain X.

He said it is generally used more and marketed as just a glass treatment - they have arches in tunnels that target the glass more and not so much the rest of the car. Sure - it gets on the whole car, but according to him, it is not the same type of Tvp protectant as Rain x. Simoniz already has hot wax, double bond, and ceramic sealer and about 15 other sealers- so they really developed this to target glass and be marked to do just that.

I think there are a lot of great options out there - I am using Quest Total Shield Extreme which is the best I have ever used. That plus shine on with Vantagloss gives stunning results.
Quest also has Total Shield- no extreme and Total Shield TF , which would be less expensive alternatives, but probably sacrifice longevity.

Samurai Shield is a great suggestion too. I have tried that in the past. Used to use Lustrashield too - pretty good also.

Quite honestly, as someone said on an earlier thread, how long do you actually want it to last? Ha.
I ordered Vision Shield, & am gonna give it a try....

Right - that is probably why Quest has the 3 versions - it depends what you are looking for in performance.

But from my understanding with the vision Clear, it is not that it does or does not last, it is that you won’t get the results on the paint - the shine and smooth feeling, because it is formulated specifically for glass. But let us know, I never tried it. That could just be rep. Talk.

{ have Rain X. at my 4 Tunnels. The main reason I use this instead of another brand is name recognition. Few car care products today have this recognition. (This may vary with demographics) One would be Armor All. If I have a vending machine with Armor All tire Shine and a competing product Like Black Jack that may be superior the Armor All outsells it 10 to 1.

I think around $175 for the TS extreme - in that ballpark. Never bought the TS regular so not sure, but obviously cheaper. But keep in mind coach, it is not just drum/pail cost. Dilution ratio is huge. TS extreme goes on at 1:120 at its strongest. . When I was looking into Vision Clear, it was 1:60 at its strongest.

I added TS 3x concentrate beginning of March and wish I tried sooner. Love it , customers noticed big difference, lasts longer than any other wax I’ve tried and smells great
