Ideal for spring showers, this screenwash is not only designed to remove dirt and smears from your windscreen, it also coats the glass with its rain-repelling formula. This has the benefit of helping prevent water and dirt build-up in future, and makes the screen easier to clear quickly. Glare is reduced and the solution also conditions the wiper blades, alleviating friction and unwanted screeches as they operate. Costing just under a fiver, a 150ml bottle of Dirtex treats a full screenwash reservoir.

Legendary remote-control cars manufacturer Tamiya has launched a stunning 1/10 scale Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The highly detailed model measures 455mm in length and 207mm tall, featuring polycarbonate bodywork and working LED lighting (sold separately).
