New wheels protection

Story goes.
Last new car 2 years ago ( Passat B8 )
I used CQUK on the paint and Dlux on the wheels. Both I was very happy with the results.
I now have changed the car and need to do the wheels again,
I am debating between the Carpro Dlux or Feynlab Ceramic wheel and caliper.

Apparently Feynlab stuff is simple to use and outlasts the dlux.

Any advice?

Thanks

New wheels protection

Loved Gtechniq C5, used it for years on all our cars. Then after reading good things about Carbon Collective decided to give Platinum Wheels a go. Glad I did, it's much better than C5. Beads and sheets better than C5. Very impressed with it.

Fun you say that but I swapped from C5 to Platinum wheels and thought it seem to keep the wheels cleaner than C5.

Ive used both C5 and Platnium Wheels on each of our cars, applied near the same time and covered the same milage etc. I found little to choose between them, however the bmw kicked up that much brake dust that it may have been harder to judge the Plat Wheels. Has anyone tried C5 with exo for that added bit of protection and beading?

Thanks guys.
I might give carbon collective a go.
Is it one coat or two?
Basically wipe on spreading evenly and a light buff after a minute?
Thanks
