Definitely normal. Water sits on my roof then when I pull away to leave my drive I open the window (to hear for cars coming round corner) and it all pours in the car!!

A lot is to do with whether it's parked on the level surface. Other half's car doesn't do it as much as it's on the sloping part of our drive.

Yes that is very normal. Happens more on cars with a flatter roof, rather than those with runout.

Its' great fun to brake suddenly right after slowly pulling away and watch all the water fall down on the windscreen, which if it happens to have a sealant, gives great tight run offs. I might be too guilty of doing that

Somewhat depends on the quality of your LSP, once a few beads join together they generally run off the roof.

Carnauba waxes are probably better at controlled beads than polymer/ceramics..

Totally agreeSealents tend to sheet where Carnauba wax’s especially oily ones Seem to gather the water up in beadage form.SJ.
