I have a 2007 BMW 1 series as a daily driver. Looking at the amount of damage on the wind screen I would guess itís still the original one. It has this haze on all areas which arenít covered by the wipers, it doesnít usually look as dramatic as in the photo, just under certain lighting. Iíve tried strong APC, IPA and AG fast glass but no improvement. Any ideas what causes it, and if it can be removed/improved?

From the picture I suspect it's embedded dirt, however hard to determine from just a photo.

You've already tried APC, IPA and non abrasive AG Fast Glass so i would move on to clay bar the windscreen to see if that helps.
If claying doesn't help I would resort to polishing the windscreen with something like CarPro CeriGlass and a rayon polishing disc.

I wonder if that is something like Rain X on the screen and it has 'gone off'? Either way, as Enep mentioned, you may have to resort to machine polishing the screen to remove it.

Thanks for the replies, I did put RainX on it a couple of times last summer (before discovering it causes a dangerous amount of glare at night) so its possible itís that. Iíll try some clay on it, if I get no joy Iíll look at getting kit for my DA.

Try the clay bar, it might just be embedded dirt, then a polish

Failing that new glass

Iíve tried 0000 wire wool, didnít touch it. Iíve only just got a DAS6 for Xmas and Iím waiting for some scholl S20 black to turn up so Iíll have a bash with that. Not hopeful though if the wire wool didnít make a dent. Itís weird, follows the distinct line of the wipers, even along the bottom but feels the same as the unmarked areas, no roughness to it. Might have to be an insurance job if all else fails 😔

I donít think so, looks fine around the outer edges, no signs of peeling/separated layers.
