Question: is BF GEP + AFPP + Black Ice going to be a noticeable improvement over the below, in any given combination.

BH CP, Finis, DSW
Britemax Blackmax, EE, Vantage
FH 2685
Wowos 121
Top ups using Serious Performance Ultra Gloss Show Detailer cut 50/50 with BSD.

Metallic black car, paint in reasonable nick (some light to medium wash marring and swirls but nothing too bad).

I know folks ooh and ah over the BF gear, I'm just wondering whether it's really that much different / better, considering the paint is not perfect either! Polished Bliss suggest BH CP + DSWx2 as a good runner up to the "Wet Ice over Fire" kit...

i did gep+afpp+black ice all 1 layer end of august and last week when i washed it there was no sheeting on the roof or bonnet and i use the midnight sun qd as a drying aid after every wash. im going to try gep+black ice next in a few months which is the proper way for black ice as i dont think the black ice liked being on top of afpp, but i could be wrong and the sealant didnt last very long.
gave a very nice deep finish though with great flake pop
