Best is to keep the factory sealant. 

So better not to replace windscreen unnecessarily.

If there is no coating on the glass, when in heavy downpour the water will stick to the windscreen. Blocking out vision.

For my case I tried a few types of coating, mostly will cause the wipers to jutter. I have to dilute them by wiping and spreading with a wet cloth. That usually solve the juttering issue with windscreen coating.
