Sealant recommendations pls

About to polish my dark blue audi and trying to decide on a sealer to use.
I'd like something that lasts maybe at least 3 months but is as durable as possible to protect paint.

I've looked into ceramic coating but feel it's a lot of money and seems application can be a hit or a miss for a first timer.

Any recommendations hugely appreciated.
Thank you

I have Wowo's crystal sealant on mine and it's very good. Got to be careful on application though as it can be tricky. If it's going on bare paint it's easier to use and will do 9 months. Also can be used on glass and as a wheel sealant.

Auto finesse tough coat after using tough prep are very good. I would look at gyeon can coat https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/gyeon-q2-can-coat or Sonax protect and shine https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/sonax...age=1&top=427&

these are both pretty much spray and wipe products I have used the Sonax and it is great, the Gyeon will be my next purchase.

Britemax EE2.0 is not bad to use. Used for the first time last weekend. In testing Britemax mentioned they got to 9 months and it was still protecting i believe. Well worth a look.

I haven't tried any of those mentioned above but for ease of use I can recommend Adams Liquid Sealant and SMARTWAX Smartsealant.

Both give a great finish on dark colours and exceptionally easy to apply and remove you would get at least a couple of months out of each.

I would expect most sealants to be able to last 3 months. One option could be Autoglyms EGP. There was a great test several years ago and one of the longest lasting products was good old Extra Gloss Protection.

I have no experience of paint coatings but there does seem to be a few very easy to apply products for sale.

Wolfgang Deap Gloss Paint Sealant v3.0 gives a great finish, apply, leave for approx 1 hour before buffing off then let it cure for 12 hours

Do yourself a favour and get some Fusso Coat from soft 99 and never look back.

Hopefully some other satisfied Fusso users will also chime in!
