Default Better Then Wax! Ceracoat Ceramic Direct

I had a car lot for about ten years and always been a neat freak car guy.
Now that I'm getting older it's getting to be a lot of work keeping up with detailing my car and my wife's car.
When I first bought my car I thought about paying the $800 to have it Simoniz but didn't want to pay that kind of money! Then I found this product from Europe and it's GREAT! The company is called Ceracoat Ceramic Direct and the products I used was the exterior coating, window coating, and interior coating. They all worked as described on their web site. No dried dead wax (because it's NOT a wax) and no water spots.
The web site is: ceracoatdirect.com and you can find more information on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ceracoat?v=wall&filter=2
and on Youtube

Here is my short video of how easy it is now to wash my car after applying Ceracoat Ceramic to my car.

I have to say..... The way you posted this, it really looks like spam.

Having said that, nano-technology and similar coatings are nothing new but they are really gaining in popularity in recent months. ....AQuartz, G/Techniq, Xzilion, etc. Optimum's Opti-Coat is another one that was once only available to professional detailers but was recently released to the public (it is a "permanent" coating vs. some of the other nano-tech products).

Personally, I'm currently using/testing G/Techniq's C4 permanent trim restorer and I have a 20cc syringe of the Optimum OC I have yet to tap into. ....I will be trying it out on wheels, some trim and the wife's hood/roof.

There are plenty of discussions on detailing forums like Autopia.org so I would encourage folks to check those out before trying any of these products (so you know what to expect from a wider range of sources).

soo u had a car lot for 10 years and it was still a decision whether to spend the 800 dollars to get it simonized?.... 10 years and u didnt realize the 800 dollars u are paying is for a cheap car wash/wax/ leather upholstery cleaner and the 800 dollars u would be paying is for a paint warranty in which 90% of claims made to simoniz are turned down...

This is not a spam. I just would like to share my experience with a new product.

You are incorrect about Simoniz. It's a good product that works but is way to much money for it.

This stuff is way cheaper and works VERY good! What I am saying is it's better then applying a good carnauba wax. With wax it takes longer to put on and take off,if you get it on the black molding it puts a haze on it, and it doesn't last a year.

Yes I had a car lot in PA for 10years and detailed a ton of cars! If I had this stuff then it would have been much easier to keep them clean on the lot before they were sold!
