    I know I know.. it's not a "proper" ceramic coating but I think the video does justice.

    I masked off 3 boxes with painters tape on my hood. I tried untreated paint vs meguiars wash and wax vs hydrosilex. Then I dumped water on it. Super dooper scientific, but I think the video speaks for itself.

    I fell for the advertisements on Facebook and I said what the hell, I'll try it. Well I'm glad I did.

    Anyway... for what worth...

    Should have tried a true wax like Megulars Synthetic Wax.....applied with an orbital. Water test is pretty weak. Need to see how it holds under several car washes, bad weather. I am suspicious of fancy words like ceramic, titanium, etc when it comes to paint protection.

    I would add "glass coating" to that and "me too" when it comes to suspicion. But then I used 22ple and it really was a "game changer":



    This product is a game changer! - 22ple VX1 Pro Coating

    I put it on my S when it was new over 4 years ago, and every six months since, and it shines like new and is not dulling like a wrap. When I used it on my new 3 recently I got some on the window and after it dried it took a razor blade to scrape it off. It really is like glass or ceramic given how hard it is when dry -- but "titanium" takes it too far. Still, so much better, and easier, than traditional waxing.

    Sure! I totally agree. For a quick spray on, wipe off I think the results are pretty good... for now.

    Please try to treat one side or some areas.. Then check for difference one week, four weeks later, and/or some washes later.
    My experience is that even very expensive, professional applied ceramic coating lasts too short.
