I have had mine on for 4 months and It is amazing. It really makes my routine washes soo much easier. Is the beading like day one still? Mine actually started to improve after the second month Idk how Its really weird.

On the CQuartz Finest I have been trying to get my hands on that stuff but seeing as I am leaving for college in less than 20 days it makes no sense trying to become a certified installer. The only way you can get your hands on it is from someone that is allowed to get it and I am sure they are not supposed to sell it to anyone. If you get some let me know

CarPro rep is supposed to be contacting me soon to go over the requirements... we'll see what they have to say and what I will be required to do in order to get my hands on it.

No question, Collinite, 845 gives such depth to the finish. Tried so many over the years but always go back to Collinite 845. Good place to find it autogeek.com

Presta Fast Wax. The VOC compliant one. Runs around 30 bucks for a quart or 60 for a gallon. Hands down the best wax I've ever used. Converted many people from their wax to this one.

Syd - I know I'm quoting up a post from the past here, but I'd love some details on CG J97. Please tell me you didn't pay full price for that... $849 @ DI

It isn't about the wax it about polishing the clear coat
To its best look! Any wax will do. Work on the clear coat
That's where it's at!

I used to use Mothers, then Meguires NXT, and moved to Zaino full line or products for about 8 yrs. Stuff is expensive but goes a long way. No complaints other than tired of using the same product over and over. Purchased some Wolfgang products, polisher, and sealant and haven't used a wax just yet. Bought some Chemical guys citrus wash stuff, metal wax for my new rims and CG Diablo to clean the rims with.

I am a sealant kind of guy. I like the Klasse products: All-in-One and High Gloss Sealant Glaze. They are a little tricky to use but the shine lasts a REAL long time.
