'Williams' Coating

So, I finally ditched the ST and got a Nissan X Trail, there was a small paint defect which they are currently rectifying. As a sweetener (?) for their bad, they are going to apply their Williams coating FOC. This is Motorpoint, by the way. The coating was offered as an extra at purchase for about £400, which I declined. FOC is a better price!
So, does anyone know anything about this product? They say it has been developed in conjunction with the Williams F1 racing team, ( I know, alarm bells!) I guess it's just an updated Supaguard kinda deal, and if it turns out pants, I'll remove it, just curious for any info that may be out there.
TIA

I think it will be the waterless wash coating, it's about £5 a bottle on shopping channels, i've got it on my motorhome, it's actually ok for me but not everyone's cup of tea!

More likely to be the ceramic coat protection http://www.williamscarproducts.com/ceramic-coat/

Seems 'bout right, need to see what I make of it, when I get it back. If it is this, what's the general opinion of the good DW' ers?

It's the williams ceramic-coat, i apply it quite often for main dealers, the coating is good when applied correctly, cars i have applied this coating to still maintain great protection, my goto ceramic coating would be carpro cquartz or finest

I just bought a car from Motorpoint and the Williams coating the offer is the synthetic version not the ceramic version. I didn't go for it, I bought some Gtechniq C1 instead.
I guess as with most coatings, if you wash the car with the recommended shampoo it will last longer.

Good luck with the Williams coating. Free makes it 10 times better than any other coating

Yeah, they've returned the car, looking good. They, (whoever applied the coating) affixed a little sticker saying synthetic coating. As said, free was the selling point, but, it does look smart, we'll just need to see how it goes.
Lots of new stuff, EZ, coming, so just waiting for the weather now.

Similar to many other coatings. All in the prep work, which the dealer won't do..

as Dooka said, doubt the car will be panel wiped along with many other important steps so the coating won't last long in most cases!

I'm thoroughly convinced, am sure they wont have put the prep in, wont have done half the work even I would do, let alone a pro who's being paid. The thing is though, it had to go in for a little touch up, and by way of apology, they have done this for free, so, working on free being the best price; I'm pretty much happy.
The result may not last as long, may not be up to pro standard, but, well, I wont mention the price again.
