    Is anybody have any feed back with the long result of nano technology paint protection applied by professional?

    I donít mind spending time washing my car but Iím working away a lot and my wife will not do, it so Iím looking at finding a way to protect the paint.

    Also I donít understand how can you properly dry the car without rubbing it?
    when I do this I still have water marks.
    Thanks...

    If you get it done by a reputable company, the nano and ceramic coatings are very good, as are some of the DIY ones. They make dirt removal heaps easier, and provide some scratch protection

    Been quoted $ 700 for car and $1100 to do all car and inside.

    What product is that using? That's actually not too bad if they're using OptiCoat or one of the other pro application products

    Seems to have silicone on it. Generally silicone is not recommended near paint as it makes any touch up really difficult.

    I have no association with this company. I have emailed them with no reply so not sure if they exist or only want consumers to deal with the detailers or workshops applying the product.
    It seems like an ideal product if it infact able to perform the same in years to come.

    Put the $1100 towards a garage or carport , better answer plus improve the value of the house
    I use and recommend Polish bonding agent and Duragloss Clearcoat wax ( i did not receive any form of remuneration for this endorsement)

    Spoke to a detailer mate the other day, and he said he's switched from OptiCoat to Concours Nova, which he believes is a superior product.

    He works with an Audi dealership, and also does a lot of Ferraris, Lambos, etc.

    He indicated that a new Rok would be around $750-850, with some guys charging as much as $1500 for coating a new vehicle. The older the vehicle, the more it costs due to the paint correction required before sealing it

    Hi guys, came across a useful little thing for cleaning the dash and other places that get dust and stuff. Just a handful of gel-like polymer stuff. Nice and cheap, does a great job.

    See here:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Ho-C...311.0.0.mz0CYb

    Great topic. What is everyone's thoughts on a foam wash and what products are you using to clean your wheels from brake dust?
