I got enviroguard ng resist all on my 2015 wrx and honestly I'm not sure about it, my car looks great, I hear that quartz finest ceramic coating is really the way to go, but it is pricey.

I think they throw it in to make the warranty sound better.

If you want low-maintenance, definitely go with a paint coating like Opti-Coat or CQuartz Finest. I'd recommend not having anything done at the dealer as long-lasting protection is all in the prep work, and generally quality detailing is not a dealer's forte. It appears that Resist All is a paint sealant, which will need frequent reapplication to stay effective. I'd stay away, and either apply a coating yourself for under $100, or pay to have it done for at least $500.

From what they say it has a 7 year warranty but I am hesitant that it would actually last that long.

It won't. To maintain that warranty you generally have to go back for reapplication, say every 6 months. It says on their site it's a paint sealant. You could apply a sealant yourself more often for less money.

Generally any service like this that is through the dealer is overpriced and less effective than other alternatives. Just a way for them to make extra money.

How much are they asking for this?

They are asking for about $640 for exterior and interior. I'm trying to get out of it as they never mentioned reapplication, etc and didn't see a contract.

Definitely pass. Anything that is advertised as effective on both paint AND leather is comprising on both ends, and it is either much too aggressive for leather or not strong enough for paint.

Like JustinTime said, if it is a sealant, that will wear off within 6 months *if* you maintain proper care of your car.

As recommended previously, invest in a real detailer whose career is putting paint coatings on cars. He will use OptiCoat or CQuartz, and a separate product for your leather. If you find one, you can have it done right after you take delivery to reduce cost of correcting any paint imperfections.

(You can even do your leather, just get some Lexol Cleaner + Conditioner or HD Protect or Chemical Guys...etc.)

PM me if you need recommendations/more advice.

Thanks for the advice, my salesman is being non-responsive about not doing the treatment. They better get back to me about this, they can't expect me to pay for a treatment I haven't done.

It works really well. Not just saying that as a salesman for Subaru. My car had quite a bit of bird..reside on it. Had my recon guys clean it up, said it was the hardest thing ever to get off so they resistalled it and the next time it basically slid right off the car with a spray. Also has some very nice looking beads as well which I can't help but love. Not sure the longevity of it though.

EDIT: And there will be a contract.

I'm sure it works great when maintained, but when it was sold to me it was apply once pitch. Never mentioned reapplication every 6 months or so it keep it warrantied. My sales guy finally got back to me and said I can cancel. I'd rather put that money towards winter rims/tires.

Good to hear. Find a local detailer in your area to apply Opticoat for ~$400 if you take the car to him brand new and that will last you a few years if you maintain your paint well. Or you can buy your own tube of Opticoat 2.0 (the non-pro licensed stuff) for $80 and apply yourself after any scratches are out.

Any tips on application of opticoat? My friend also recommended Klasse sealant, any thoughts on the two? Lastly, should I apply before putting clear bra on the front end?

ok as a detailer for a dealership that uses envirogaurd resist all, I hate it. the interior stuff for the plastics and upholstery is ok but I havent been impressed with it on my sister's car. as for the sealant, there are better ones, and ones that dont leave a haze on the car. I honestly think a good paste wax does better and lasts longer. the little trick they do to sell it in the show room is only claying half of the car and then spray hair spray which shows all the dirt on the side that isnt clayed. ive been told I must not clean the car properly by the resist all rep. the warranty is nice if the dealership cant fix it, then it goes to envirogaurd but the claim has to be filed within 30 days
