Its a Koch Chemie German product. Its termed as a finishing spray, but for us that means a QD. It will be perfect for a CC car.

Its not cheap, not many good products are. It is good value though .

Thanks! Assuming this is the stuff below it seems reasonable to me. At the moment having spend a large chunk of cash getting the ceramic coating its now getting ruined with water spots so £10 seems great value to get rid of the spots!

Does anyone have the chemical data sheet for FSE? I'm guessing it has some mild acidic content to help it get rid of the spots.

Yes, thats the best place to buy it too. Give James a bell.
You can try the smaller 1ltr, but the 10ltr is good value and haven't seen a bad comment on it yet. I'm buying the lager amount next time

Correct, it has to be to dissolve limescale.

Is it not cheaper to invest in a DI vessel over the long run?

You still need a QD and FSE will cope with that too.
I am in quite a soft water area, most in areas in the south of the UK are much harder.
Even so, I am still going to add a filter system too to help.

I have to say I am a big fan of all the Koch Chemie products I have tried. They are pretty good value for money. FSE is a really good product. I have a DI but it’s a useful go to product. I find it works really well on bug splats between washes. Also good around the bathroom shower.

I have a Race Glaze DI cylinder but my water spots are from the rain and then the car sitting while I was at work in the sun.

I guess using the FSE and then some Carpro reload will maintain my Ceramic coating?

Not sure you will need the reload after FSE if used as a finishing spray/QD.
With CC sounds as though you are in good shape.
