Depends on the type of product. But products like 22PLE or Gyeon which use the 'glass'-like coatings (the quartz coatings) really add a great wet looking gloss to the finish.

Other products like Nanolex using nano-coatings don't result in the same gloss, but the dirt repelling effect is even better!

Looking good

Am waiting for my own Red 220 D M Sport to arrive in June. Can,t wait for it to be detailed and look as good as the one you did. Excellent work, great results.
Can you suggest any products for excellent shine and longevity.

I would always opt for a coating, nano or glass coating depending on your preferences. Both have their specific advantages.
