I would mostly agree to what cknowlen said. I find that it doesn't really last after a wash application. I had my car detailed back in April and following a 2 bucket wash method, I get the same water beading with or without applying Topcoat. I was gifted one of the F11 kits several years ago and I think I have used it maybe 3 times on a couple cars. I find it is rather greasy to apply and it can be very obvious if it isn't rubbed in well. It leaves smears and visual marks if car isn't perfectly clean or it isn't rubbed in well. Luckily, I didn't take the hit on the cost because it was gifted.

My detailer recommended Meguiar's Waterless Wash & Wax for quick touch up cleaning and I like the way it applies and stays on much better. It is also much cheaper and works on a dirty car as well. Much less toweling required to get a good finish. I would probably consider doing the car with only the Meguiar's after a car wash for an extra wax seal
