Granted it works well, but be careful if you have a BMW!
There is no anti bacterial in it, so bacteria can form and block the filter.
I think probably more of a BMW issue, than a generic one.

I use BMW fluid now, from BMW direct of eBay.

Blimey never heard of that happening. I've used it my old Toyota RAV4 and my mums Kia Picanto and never had any of the issues you've mentioned.

Not just BMW, think there are plenty of other cars that have the issue - think they are ones that use the fine fan spray jets (if that makes sense) and they have a filter in the bottle, to stop the jets getting blocked, but some screen wash seem to react with others and create this gloop, which then blocks up the filter...

Wife's Merc has these fine jets and thankfully not had a problem

Oh OK, my Citigo has (VW) fan spray jets and again no problem at all. Think it's just pot luck!

Been using Prestone screenwash from Costco for years. 5 litres for just under a fiver, can't fault it.
I won't describe it as 'awesome' as I'm not from the USA, let's just say it's great!!

Thanks for all the help and the recommendations. The AG screenwash at Halfords looks to be a bit of a bargain at the minute.
