Gtechniq Gtechniq was founded by quantum physicist Drew Gill in 2001, out of a total dissatisfaction with the performance of paint protection products at the time. Everything from waxes, to new-fangled polymers and PTFE based miracle treatments, nothing on the market offered any meaningful durability, either in looks, or protection. Worse still, he found that most of the products actually performed poorer than the paints they were supposed to protect. From this discontent came a simple idea, ‘To engineer the world’s most beautiful, perfectly finished, smartest and most intelligent surfaces. Surfaces that do much more than simply look great when new.’

Strange marks in GTechniq coated paint

Car had a complete CS and EXO treatment when new last year, then an EXO top up this spring.

Has been fine but these kind of mottled/streaking marks have been appearing in the last month. On just the rear quarter but now over more of the car. Really noticeable when drying the car and wiping over it "wet". Tried QD and C2v3 but makes no difference but show up the marks more whilst you're drying the product over the panel.

That said, even once dry, the marks are still there and visible from some angles?

I've done a quick search. Does this look like the EXOv2 water spot/mark issue??

This may seem a silly question but has the car been snow foamed when the surface was warm.

Not that I recall. I don't use snow foam on it, as it never gets dirty enough. Just pre-rinse with a jet-wash and then wash (with G-wash).

Would that give the effect seen then?

I'm assuming this has only started since the top up of exo? Also did you apply it yourself?

If you coated it yourself take a bit of light All in one (Autofinesse is great for this) and use it on a small patch of the affected area, and see if it fixes it. I've found AF AIO removes exo and doesn't do much damage to the CSL
