Gtechniq G1 or G5

Hi looking at getting some gtechniq glass products. What kit out of these 2 would give me best results. Also I noticed the G1 is very small how many applications do you think I would get from one bottle. Car is used mainly for town driving all year round

G5 for side & rears windys

Is there any benefit putting g1 on sides and rear windows or is it just a waste?

Personally I would get the g5 as
It repels water at 20mph+ apparently

G1 is more durable but g5 is the beader, and IMO would be best for town driving as you say

There really is no comparison between the two, unless you 'enjoy' applying window sealants, I cannot see why you would choose Carlack over the Gtechniq.

G5 due to it's better performance from lower speeds ->
It's not as durable as something like Duxback but offer far superior performance. Besides which putting another layer of G5 on the windows is no different to putting another layer of wax on the body

Never liked G1 both on terms of performance and application.

Have you found it vastly increases g5's durability if layered?
