Window grime 02 1600.jpg

Every time I roll any of the G8's windows down, I see this strip of grimy film across the top. I bugs me. Why? Because even after a good cleaning, the top inch or so of the windows is always obscured by the thick window frame. You need to roll the windows down a bit to clean the top edge, the roll them up to clean the bottom edge.

This, from a guy who carries his own mini bottle of window cleaner and a rag in his briefcase. Why? because when the photographers (who hate to see freshly wiped arcs across an otherwise clean windshield) want me to drive into the setting sun and the Editor-in-Chief reprimands me for flipped down sun visors in photos, I need a very clean windshield. Just sayin'
