Have a small disagreement with a fellow detailer. How long will/should #16 last on a properly prepared and maintained automobile? I have had it last 4-6 months on the cars that I detail and maintain. He says no way, that Meguiar's reps have told him if will not last more than 4-8 weeks. What do you think?

It lasted over 3 months of salty winter on my daily-driver that was parked outside 24-7. It was still doing pretty well at that point and probably had another month in it.

I have had it last 3+ months as well, Same situation as Aurora, daily driver, sits outside 24-7.

4 to 8 weeks sounds like a short amount of time to me given my experiences with #16.
