    Yep, on my 16 year old car and see for yourself...
    Gone all arty-farty City & Guilds style...

    Bodywork, wheels, glass (excluding the windscreen) love the stuff

    Yes I won't let anyone else touch my cars!
    Actually this stuff was given to me as an experiment to try it. Its not the most expensive but the results are how it's applied and how many coats etc.

    Couldn't be easier to apply. It's the prep work that's the crucial factor. Surface has to be spotless, free from all previous wax etc. Clay bar'd, m.o.p.'d, then I used panel wipe as a last part before applying the stuff. Buffing up, - that's the fun part! It repels dirt and water like you wouldn't believe :)

    Had the SL done and loved it. Water and dirt just fall off the paint even two years on. Ed at Divine Detail did mine.

    Gtechniq Crystal serum light and EXO, didn't apply it myself, had it done professionally by a company called Reep in Leicester. Would definitely recommend them for all detailing needs.

    No-Name stuff from "Newfrog" or "Tomtop" straight from China in about 2 weeks.

    125ml spray bottle for about £6 including postage.

    Definitely the most water-repelling polish I've ever used. Really easy to apply, just use it like Mr Sheen, spray (needs a windless day) then buff till the shine appears.

    Done 3 months ago, every time it's washed, it looks like I've done it again!

    Secret to everything is the prep. Especially the clay bar get that right and almost guaranteed a good finish.

    I have professionally applied Gyeon Duraflex on some, and it’s great but expensive. To be honest, as long as the preparation is right before application, a good quality (but not necessarily exoensive) sealant can achieve similar results but may require more maintenance.

    The results of ceramic coating are true and they work and protect the vehicle. I would suggest adapting to a more careful washing method to maintain the vehicle and use the companies top up spray sealants per few washes to help maintain the coating
