The best glass cleaner I have found is from Griot's Garage 1800-345-5789,
called glass polish.  It contains both some sort of soft abrasive and
petroleum distillates.  They claim it will remove waterspots, long a problem
on german cars.  It has worked marvellously on my 4kq, the windows have
never been cleaner. It is somewhat pricey, $12.95 + shipping, but some
things may be worth it...No promises, but this stuff sorks great for me...
