Keep those small C4 mirrors clear and useable
Whilst the C4 mirrors look great they have some limitations. Rain tends to drip off the top edge onto the glass and it doesn't take long in the winter months to render them fairly useless!

I got fed up with the mirrors always being unusable after a few motorway miles in dirty weather so decided to do something about it.

So, I cleaned the mirrors, both front door windows externally using Turtle Wax Extreme Nano-Tech glass cleaner

[shadowbox=http://c4owners.org/images/c4/large/nano_glass.jpg|Car Plan Nano Glass||right][/shadowbox]Then I applied CarPlan Nanomeric Self Clean Glass Seal and Protect

Nano particles bond to the glass, making the surface completely smooth, allowing the water to run off instantly, taking dirt with it! With Nanomeric Glass Seal & Protect long-term visibility is increased.

It's almost like having invisible windscreen wipers - water runs away before your eyes as you drive during the rain!

After a weeks driving in some wet and dirty conditions I can still see through the mirrors and the rear screen visibility is much improved

I haven't done the windscreen as I have heard some stories of Rain-X causing wipers to 'skitter' and 'judder' across the screen and don't know how CarPlan will perform so would avoid doing it

This wasn't a cheap option costing circa £25.00 but well worthwhile
