Price and details updated in first post
Will this product give any added protection from stone chips or would i still be better off getting a product like ventureshield for this?

Mercedes CLS350 Opti-coat.
Even though Mercedes are known to have the protective ceramic clear coating on their paint it still needs to be protected as the cermaic is only a fraction of the total thickness of what the cler coat actually is.

Most other paint protectants contain fillers which gives you a false sense of finish and these will wash out overtime.
Opti-coat cures clear which gives you a true finish so it is recommended that any paint correction be carried out before hand if required.
This Audi came in for Opti-coat and tint.
For a new car the paint condition was pretty average and I was surprized the dealership let it go out with water spots all over the roof, boot & bonnet.
Condition of the paint after full wash, clay & IPA wipedown.
The water spots were corrected with a couple passes with the rotary before applying the Opti-coat as the coating would have locked in these marks if not removed.
Interesting product, great for cars kept outside.
Impressive! I would like to know if this product would help protect against swirls.

I did my first test of the Opti-coat on my wifes car on the
30th August 2010 and here are the beading shots 3 months after.
Water is from the car being out in the rain.
The car has only been washed twice since the coating was applied.
