    What's the difference between Opti-Coat and XPEL? I know XPEL is self-healing. Is Opti-Coat? Which do you recommend?

    I may have some of this wrong but Opti-coat isn't a film like XPEL, just a semi-permanent synthetic wax that helps keep shine longer and makes car easier to wash. Opti-Coat doesn't offer protection against rock chips like XPEL can.

    That's my understanding as well. I had both done to my MS as they work together to protect the finish.

    Detailing and Paint Protection of "Veterans"

    Ben,

    Could you please address what services you'd recommend for cars like mine, that were not given any special treatment and have now been on the road for a while? I've got some minor scratching and similar that, while normal for a car with 2.5 years of service, make me a little sad.
     
  6. Hi Robert,

    So from what you have described, you would be looking at a Full Restorative Detail w/ Paint Correction. This is a full 50 step process that includes decontamination of all surfaces, multi step abrasive polishing, and a strong polymer sealant. This will REPAIR any surface scratching (rather then hiding them with silicone), and bring back the gloss to the paint that the car had when it was new. This includes the interior as well. You can also go for OptiCoat Pro to protect the finish after repairing.

    Feel free to shoot us a PM for a personal consultation, we'd love to take care of your car!

    I picked up my midnight silver metallic 70D last night from Ben at Quintessential Car Care in Burlington, MA. Ben and his team did an EXCELLENT job. The car looks amazing. Highly recommend.
