Default STI New Car Prep with Opti Coat

A brand new Subaru came in for a detail. It was in pretty good shape overall.

Does this "Opti coat" come in a hard paste or liquid form?

What sort of protection does this provide in comparison to a clear bra? How does it compare in cost? Does it make sense to have both (in different areas)? Trying to decide what to do with mine when it arrives and I see you are local!

Yes, you "ALWAYS" clay a new car (and old one as well of course)

On the front of the car, a clear bra will provide much better protection naturally as far as rocks and debris.

Besides that, adding this additional clear coat to your paint makes maintenance super easy, for the life of the car
