Opti-Coat Paint Sealant

Guys…just had the Opti-Coat applied this week…WOW! I went to pro installer certified by Opti-Coat. They washed, polished the car, and then applied the Opti-Coat. I can not believe the depth of the shine on the car….looks twice as good as the day I picked it up. Plus, I will never need to wax the car and it is guaranteed for the life of the car.

I sprayed the car with a hose a couple days later and any dirt comes right off and the the water literally runs right off the car. You can literally use a blow dryer to dry any water left.

This stuff is amazing. You can use a quick spray wax for a little extra shine, but it isn't necessary by any means. One thing to note, is the paint won't be slippery smooth with OptiCoat as it is with a fresh wax, but looks just as good and is permanent so who cares!

I did the opticoat pro as soon as i picked up my car from my dealer. Its amazing!!! Looks fantastic and very easy to keep clean and shine. I paid $400 for body and wheel - wow so easy to keep my 21" wheels clean. I strongly recommend!! Especially if you have Nero Ribelle.

Thanks again, anderson, for the great info. You are so helpful and GREAT !!!

Anderson, actually last friday, someone keyed the side body of my nero ribelle sq4. I was so mad but i rubbed with some wax and it disappeared completely. What a great protection as well. Amazing $400 spend.

That is a an amazing price!!! I paid double that, but because they had to polish it as I couldn't get my car coated for 2 weeks and in the meantime picked up swirl marks they had to polish out. But nonetheless, even with a polish for $200, your price was really amazing!

Everything is cheaper here in Texas. Check my OP. It provides great protection.

anderson, I understand you are from around Chicago as well: where did you get the job done and how much was this?

I am picking my car up later this week and the dealer is trying to get me to buy all the add-ons(wheel protection, external and internal surface protection, etc.). This isn't what they offer is it?

Sigh... appointment made to have opti coat done on my car. It's a month old, hopefully no imperfections that need polishing.

Yes, I'm in Chicago. I had it done by Chicago Auto Pros in Glen Ellyn. Talk to Jason there and tell him I sent you, he said he would give a good deal to any referrals I give him.

This was a hike for me but there are not many in Chicago that are certified to apply it.
