confused Greasy/streaky windows

Having never owned a new car, I'm a bit stumped.... our new BA XR6 has got really streaky windows. I've tried everything, but the interior just won't come clean. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the tint? Does anyone have any advice?

Also, being an ex-Daihatsu Charade driver and only used to going backwards in a 1.3, I *accidentally* pressed my accelerator pedal waaaaaay too hard at the lights on Newbridge Road the other night, and when I looked down I was doing 95km's in 2nd gear and my husband reckons 5500 revs.... When I got home, I found bite marks in the drivers seat!

If the tint is new it can appear streaky until all the moisture is out of it. Otherwise, I have no idea.

Kezza, You haven't been picking up the friday night fish & chips, & driving home with the windows up, have you?
Seriously, though... If you have Tint, it takes anything up to 3 weeks to clear properly.

Have a feeling your talking about the chemical vapour from the dash leaving a strealy film on the inside of the windscreen........

The only thing I'd suggest is a wipe over with Metho and newspaper, Tis an oldie but a goodie!

I find that the Meguiars window cleaner does a great job on the film you are talking about. If it is really built up give it two or three goes.

If you are a metho user try kero instead, I find it is heaps better (finished off with a spray of Meguiars of course)
