THIS!!! I try to only wash mine every other weekend. So much work, but it looks so good when it's actually clean

I gave up on wax’s and sealants. Spent a lot of money trying various types. In the end some had decent results but just wouldn’t last no matter how many layers I put on.

Ended up buying a cheap DA polisher and a bottle of Car Pro Quartz Sic and I recommend anyone else with a black car to do the same.

Car looks great, water runs off the panel, can blow dry the car completely clean.

Rained today then had harsh sun and the car still looked clean with minimal water spots which just washed off with a garden hose.
- Looks infinitely better than it did in the same circumstances when I had 3 layers of Turtle Wax sealant/ ceramic spray with graphene spray over the top- with that combo still requiring a hand wash with a pressure washer to fully remove the water spots.

Don’t waste your time and money with these products as your main protection, just do a DIY paint correction and ceramic coating. Extremely happy with the results and I had 0 experience using a polishing machine or applying a ceramic coating
