Had the v1 of Opti Coat on my car for 18 months when I sold it and it was as good as day 1. I then used a 3 year old bottle of it to coat the wheels on my current car, and 2.5 years and 34,000 miles later its still rinsing clean and beading as good as new! That was the original v1 formula that has been improved several releases since.

Not used any of the others on the test here but get a quality product, apply it properly with exactly the right prep & conditions etc and you can expect great performance from these products.

Update after 11 months, 48 weeks, 333 days, 16 390 miles and 32 washes.

Well, nothing huge after last update, but here`s couple notices.



- It looks like EXOv2, as a stand alone product, has past it`s best days at this test:


- I would say Gloss-Coat isn`t any better:


I have used former version of Gloss-Coat (Opti-Coat 2.0) and because of that, i had high expectations about Gloss-Coat.

(I have read rumours that Optimum has changed formula of Gloss-Coat version 1. Has anyone else read or heard about this or is this just BS?).


- IgreenLover Quartz is still working, but best hydrophobic property is gone:






After last wash, i wiped surfaces with mf-cloth and Cleanser-Fluid, because there still was some evidence of sticked road salt. After that, i used Led Lenser P7 to inspect is there differences between panels scratch/wash marring resistance. I´ll tell you more later, but i can say there really is differences..

the results of optimum are not surprising for me.

Was hoping that this test is still on going? Im on the line about getting CSL+ExoV3, but I was wondering how the coating stands up to micro marring on a daily driver? I currently have 22ple HPC but the hydrophobic abilities have really seen better days (Midwest states so the salt).
