    Hi, i request if anybody had coated his car with ultra ever dry or similar to avoid the cleaning procedure.

    Nissan research had tested the micra with ultra ever dry and the result is very good. The only problem is the 1 year life of the coating.

    Looks impressive. As hydrophobic and effective as these low cost nano coatings (CQuartz, Gtechniq, etc.) are, this looks like it repels water much more effectively than what I've seen before.

    I always wonder what this stuff and other nano coatings does to the environment over time.

    If I remember correctly, ultra ever dry or other similar superhydrophobic coatings are not fully transparent, so you can only use them on white cars. And they wear off very easily. There's no way they would last a full year.
