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.
Pre-soaked with mix of APC and shampoo
Clayed. This car was 2 months old.
Car wash given a full IPA wipedown after wash then Opti-coat was applied.
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.
