Soft protection

I have a MY16 Discovery in black. I'm no expert but it seems to have the softest paint on earth? I struggle to keep the paint mark free despite using a nice Dooka mitt, 2bm etc etc
When new I machine polished the whole car and used AS silver seal paint sealant. I use mostly AS but have also used c2v3 and Fk1000p over the top.
Has anyone got any advise to protect the paint or have experience of LR paints?

TIA people

They do have very soft paint, which I always find strange for a rugged car, but it's the same across the JLR range.

A tough ceramic coating is the way to go if you want the swirls to stay at bay.
There are a bunch that you can apply yourself (in the right conditions). The harder wearing ones tend to be detailer only like Ceramic Pro 9H, Ctechniq Crystal Serum and such.

Welcome to the dark side of landrover I tried everything on mine and it was a constant battle, I think your only way is to invest in a coating.

I haven't had any issue with the Evoque or even the older Discovery but the MY16 one seems to be painted with cottage cheese

drying is a major area for defects if your not gentle ever thought of a blower to dry the wagon? less touching can only be a good thing
