Hi,

I have narrowed down 3 sealants that i can use when i detail my car..

Which one should i go for?

My car will be clayed and polished, prior to sealing.

http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/sealants/auto-finesse-tough-coat-sealant/prod_912.html

  • Do i need one coat of sealant, or multiple?
  • Can i appy more then one type of sealant? or is this not required?

Thinking about applying this after sealing:

Hardbody is a coating mate completely different to the others u are looking at.
If u are working outside then hardbody is a no go this time of year as it needs 24 hours to cure before getting wet.
Tough coat is nice n simple + a good sealant.
Dont know anything about the other one.
And I wouldnt top any of then with that last one
Tough coat is great and can be layered for longer durability.
I would advise u to do a little more research before purchasing
No offence intended of course mate

If u are looking for quick spray type sealants
The werkstatt acrylic kit would look nice on ur beemer
So would carpro reload, gtechnic c2v3 or artdeshine nano gloss protection.
If u want a simple to use polymer sealant, menzerna powerlock or blackfire, ardeshine artdesicko..
If u want more long term protection u should look at carpro cquk or some of the artdeshine and gtechniq coatings.

No Garage, working outside.

I dont mind doing this by hand, i have this kit - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polis...try-hydro-tech-and-menzerna-kit/prod_842.html this i was going to use to polish the car after i clay it.. before i seal

Would like the protection to last as long as possible, i do tend to wash my car every week and apply the speed detailer every 3-4 washes,,

Also my new BMW is Grey and not silver as my avatar)

I have used Wolf Nono coating on my cars for the past 18 months. Even stopped buying waxes as the sealant is great.

Search for a thread "Porsche in Wolfs Coating" sorry don't know how to link to it.

topping of a sealant with a wax is more for looks then durability.
as some have suggested, you can top it of with an easy spray sealant like reload, or you can defo go for the sonax xtreme briliant QD. I have heard great stuff about it's durabiity.
I'd go with the carchem if I had to choose between AF or Carchem.

I already have the Sonax Detailer, and its great...I guess it would save me buying the wax.

Am i okay to assume i will not apply the sealant again for afew months, till i am ready to clay and polish the car again? were as the speed detalier i can apply as i like after the washes?

Collinite 845 topped up with the Sonax BSD is a great combo

I prefer the 845 to the 476 as it's just so easy to use and whilst not quite as durable as the paste wax it should easily see you through the winter. And if the beading/sheeting does start to drop off you can always us the Sonax to top up the protection
