Yep, two stunning coatings, and such an awesome combo when used together!

Certainly a cut above all the others, these are truly quality coatings.

I've found it extremely durable and lasts awesome against both caustic truck wash and acidic water spot removers which degrade most other coatings. 20 months plus and it was perfect on my own Lexus, and it's still perfect months and months on my WRX. It's fairing better than most on my test panel too.

ISM has been the hardest coating I've ever had to remove - 20 months on the Lexus and I had to smash it off with M100 with Rupes blue and LC yellow. The coating was still perfect.

You might want to rethink your prep and / or application method of your coatings if you think it's an expensive sealant!

Did you use ISM only or Miyabi + ISM ?

Found ism very easy to remove as you can see the paint work getting lighter .
But miyabi seems pretty hard .

But then again, I applied it in optimal hot temps and humidity, let it cure properly, didn't get it wet when curing, and didn't start washing it before fully cured. Works wonders when you follow basic instructions.

I followed the same basic application procedure and have had 18 months so far (applied August 2015) from ISM on my TT with no sign of performance drop of yet.

To be honest I don't know why you wouldn't follow instructions carefully when using an expensive product to ensure you got the best performance and durability from it.

Like most things detailing, hyped like nothing else, then dropped by the way side due to something better/cheaper or easier.

I never really got on with the ADS stuff.

A lot of conditions.

I have tested this icm and may say that this coating is not durable in my environment.
