    Re: Sealant vs Coating

    Gloss coat does cost more but in my opinion it's worth it considering it is now an up to 3 year coating. There are a few other coatings that are cost

    Re: Question about the DA Power system

    Yes a MT300 would be awsome, however in Sweden they cost $464
    a DAPS with all pads + a medium priced drill will cost me roughly $185 :-)

    The Guz, I know I said one last question but this above quote intrigued me. So if I use a very light abrasive polish like swirlx, I could

    Re: Question about the DA Power system

    If you don't already have a drill, why not just buy the MT300?

    Well, my electric variable speed drill goes from 0 - 2500 and it was not cheap. That aside, I don't think an additional 300 rpm is going to make much

    Re: Sealant vs Coating

    IMO, so-called "sealants" (waxes by a synthetic name) and coatings are way over-hyped. 100% marketing claims can be powerful, but if a daily

    Thank you for the prompt response. The problem with "find what you like and use it often", is I like the best =) but I don't like to unnecessarily

    Yes it does. Coatings also protect better against chemicals, bird droppings. A car stays cleaner longer in between washes. Not to mention that a vehicle

    Sealant vs Coating

    Thread Starter: DanielM

    Besides longevity is there really a difference between coatings and sealants? From my readings, I see many statements lowering the hype about coating such as "Hardness can help aid in some levels of protection, but on the scale of 1-3 microns which is the average thickness of a coating, it...

    I have had an issue with my 2014 metallic jet black Porsche Panamera. I purchased secondhand from main dealer, after 3-4 months and on a warm sunny day, i noticed some sort of juddering / holographic marks.
