Then once you have done that, use your microfiber ultrasued/glass buffing cloth to buff the glass to a shine and remove any streakes and remaining residue.

You may wish to do the first step twice depending on how bad it is, I would almost certainly say that is the cause
Now that sounds like a plan indeed even though the glass looks clean it might have contaminates i will give that a go. When i used glass cleaner before i used mutton cloth and the bits drove me up the wall Never considered using microfibre instead, odd as i use it a lot on the exterior

absolutely not products. Clean the dash 4-5 times with APC and get rid of any grease oils dressings etc. That should reduce the shininess, beyond that there's not much one can do to be honest.

Time to invest in polarised glasses.

Any APC should work, other mebers here can give you specific recommendations as I'm not from the UK!

I'm actually serious about polarised glasses. They get rid of reflections 100%. I dont drive without a pair at all

Yes I thought you probably meant it with polarised glasses i need varifocal lens i have reactor lite lens for changing light conditions

When i use a standard distance glass i find close up such as speed and mirrors a bit poor, not really sure if polarised glass would offer the ease of use but i will think about them

Many thanks

I have a similar issue on a really sunny day. The dash is as Matt as I can get it, but other than that, it just seems to be an unfortunate mix of my height and the angle of the windscreen. Under the right conditions, I can hardy see the road sometimes.

My simple fix is to have a black plush microfibre cloth on top of the dash, in front of me. That seems to absorb most the light and stop most of the dash reflection.

It also doubles up as a quick dash duster as I just wizz it over the dash from time to time and it picks up all the dust.

Pretty much this, if your dash is a matt finish, it could be the angle of the dash / windscreen / sun etc.

Good suggestion re black cloth if it’s a problem.

I’ve a couple of trim pieces on my dash (matt finish) that catch the sun and reflect in side window at certain points...

Thanks Andy and Keith i will have a go at ensuring i dont have any contamination on the inside of my screen first it won’t hurt. Then if its still an issue try find some very dark cloth

Cheers guys
