Looks great and a really enjoyable read.
Gyeon products look very interesting. Look forward to reading more about them 👍

Sure will; best car I've owned to date by miles. She's quick, surefooted, a rare sight on the roads and very comfortable inside. However, on the days when I feel like a proper back road blast, she's just not quite lithe enough; neither lift-off or trail braking brings the rear into play (unlike the ST!) and she just doesn't feel like she's ever dancing on her toes. No doubt I'll miss the refinement once I've got the ST, but you can't have everything.

The more I read and see about coatings, I just can't see myself going back to waxes or sealants. The finish is better, they last longer and offer more protection. Although you do have the issue of the curing, which for anyone without the use of a garage is going to limit what they can choose.
I feel exactly the same way; these days I detail mainly to protect our cars and make them a lot easier to maintain. For me, long gone are the days of using products for fun and pleasure - I'm just too damn busy at weekends! That said I do have the luxury of working in our studio when I need to. I'm acutely aware that things will be harder for most folk, but products like Q2 PRIME should make things easier at least - for a quartz coating it's as user friendly as it gets.

Decontamination is one area where rapid change is still occurring. Before you dip your hand in your wallet you should also consider that GYEON Q2M CLAY is designed to be used with GYEON Q2M IRON, and thus tackles two stages in one (chemical iron removal and physical removal of everything else at the same time). As a time saver it's an immense proposition, thus taking the fight right back to SPEEDY et al. Food for thought.

Frozen White; if they did a mid-tone metallic grey I'd have gone for that in a heartbeat, but alas they don't, so white it had to be (the blue was tempting but just a bit too inky looking for my liking).

I'm not familiar with the current CarPro offering, so I can't offer an objective answer. However, I guess it's a bit like asking what's the difference between Auto Finesse waxes and Dodo Juice waxes, i.e. we're talking about products that share the same basic technology platform and thus depend on relatively small differences in their chemical makeup to set themselves apart. In light of this, factors in addition to product performance come into play, including brand appeal, pricing, ethics, etc. I won't comment on CarPro as it's not my place to do so, but with regard to GYEON you only have to look at how they present themselves and their products to realise how serious they are about their offering. Add in the fact that the range was developed and tested over a realistic period (two years) and the fact that the products work extremely well, and to me the appeal is obvious and very compelling. I simply had to have them in our store for these reasons!

Well worth the wait.

Really enjoyed reading your write up very well written.

Great job and some nice photos. As much as I am impressed with all these new coatings I don't think I will be changing from my waxes. So much easier to apply and look after plus I can strip off the current coating and try another wax when ever I fancy with out having to machine polish the previous coat to remove it fully.

Great write up Rich, very informative. Will have to try some of these new products.

Now does the glass sealant compare to nanolex urban ?
