We're talking about Clear Coat Not Paint Sealants
You know, the reason you attract the abuse you do at times is because you don't really take the time to read a post and think about it before you post. Often you jump to conclusions and then post in a manner that comes across as a bit rude. Do you really have a point with your post or are you just trying to rack up a bunch of posts?
You do understand that the clear coat being discussed is part of the paint system, right? It is not a wax, it is not a paint sealant. It is not something that a dealer can "add" to your car after you get it - that is unless you want to have your car repainted. Which makes me wonder if the dealers/bodyshops would actually use this or will they use someother clear coat when they repaint.
I assume you mean going through an automated car wash. What does that have to do with anything? True, the article references that as how the testing was done and, per MB, it shows improvement. So, what's your point? Not everyone is as good at it as you must be because handwashing, no matter how careful you are, will also cause swirl marks in the clear coat.
I have only posted about the clear coat. I don't know anything about the product you provided the very long link to which is a paint sealant. You still need to apply something to the clearcoat to protect it. Personally, I use a carnuba based wax though I might consider some of the newer synthetics.
Teky, please read and think about this before you go off topic...[8)][:I][:o)]
