After some trim protection advice

Hi All,

I'm picking up my brand new car next Wednesday and I'm currently in the process of gathering products to protect/clean it upon arrival.

I'd like some advice on what I should do with the exterior trim. Should I go for something like Gtechniq C4 or something else? I'll be coating exterior wheel arches and lower sill. If it helps, the car in question is a Mazda CX-5.

Thanks for any advice

Rob

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I ended up doing some more research and upon buying some Gyeon products for other areas of the car, also went for their trim stuff

Then you should have bought Tac systems and saved yourself some money.

I can't say I've ever even heard of Tac System. I'll keep them in mind next time round though. I wanted to order multiple products from one supplier and eventually went with PB. I've also followed their blog recommendation for protecting a new car
