If you are looking to give something new a shot just for the sake of keeping things interesting, I'm sure Pure would be a great choice.

Hi - I have not had any issues in the past with a plush, clean microfiber towel and some interior spray detailer.

Thanks Zach!

After perusing your site I see Gtechniq has the longest expected life, so maybe I'll give that a shot next time. Some great user reviews of that product with one direct comparison to CQuarts, as well.

Good to know!

Keep in mind the manufacturer listed durabilities are not always measuring apples to apples, and in many cases it may be beneficial to polish and recoat a vehicle before the potential lifespan of a coating has passed.

Many people attribute certain characteristics of coatings such as water beading and self cleaning to be one of the most beneficial aspects of the product, however these characteristics may diminish over time due to various environmental contaminants (sometimes very quickly depending on your environment) and are not a sign of whether or not a coating is or is not present.

Not trying to complicate your decision, just providing some more points of conversation You cannot go wrong with most main stream products from reputable brands like Gyeon, CarPro, GTechniq, etc.

Absolutely appreciate the thinking points! Yes, like with anything in life it seems the answer is always "it depends".

Interesting that you mention the beading and self-cleaning ability. Those sure are the guilty pleasure guidelines I like to follow :-)

Previously I only decontaminated (iron-x, clay bar and eraser) before applying the coating as I didn't have the space for polishing. This time I'd like to polish, as well. Time will tell what I end up actually doing!
