You really need to be more specific than ‘best ceramic coating’ if want to receive meaningful recommendations and the following information would assist members to reply:

What is your budget?
Will you apply the coating yourself or employ a professional to apply?
Can you protect from rain for 12/24 hours?
What do you want from the coating?

A further question would be: What is the condition of the paint on your vehicle? (as coatings are semi-permanent, any paint imperfections would be sealed in for at least a year)

Personally I think Gtechniq is the best for product life, protection, shine and water hydrophobicity. But it is unforgiving to work with.

Gtechniq, Tac, CQUK, wondering if these are equal, maybe even the same manufacturer?

Tac and CQ, I'm pretty sure is the same.

there is no best ceramic coating becouse there is no comparisation between product.
if somebody used g tech he will say that g tech is the best, if some use c quartz..., and so on

I have some ADS products but struggling to get application instructions, so if the products are the same i can look to Gtecniq for advice.

That's a bit of difference how they should be applied here as I have understood it, Gtch be wiped off immediately after application, Tac and CQ want to fist flash then wiped away.
Tac and CQ, wait 30-60 seconds, depending on temperature, then wipe off, so I do anyways.
Yes, the difference is quite a fine line
