Ist up clay bar using a cheap detailer as the lubricant
Then us carpro eraser to remove all residue
Apply carpro Cquartz - last 2 years

Throw all your waxes, polishes and sealants away as you wont need them

I think ceramic coatings are great and they will last the period or more if not neglected.

The problem I experienced is that it didn't last one salty winter here in the northeast with my GTI.

But when I applied the same coating on my 1er it can last 2-3 years during the summer when I drive it. Gtechniq g2 on glass lasted like 6 years!!
