best thing i ever did too .. had mine done right from the dealership from day one and its been well worth the $1000. I tested it out with a detailing product that is normally used to strip wax and sealants to get it ready to apply such things and its still there lol water beads and sheets off like a towel being pulled off and its dry after being hit with water I love it. Here is an attachment of what is on my vehicle right from the dealer and i did my exstensive research before hand and its a good product. I would have applied a ceramic coating my self as i know how lol hence my user name but i honestly don't have the time tho and plus I have a warranty on the paint for longer then i will have the vehicle lol.
Would be interested to see how long it lasts before a new coat needs to be applied. Please keep us updated.I used Turtle Wax Graphene Flex Wax on my new CX-30 Turbo. After researching ceramic coatings and PPF, I decided to go this route. There are lots of good reviews available (Pan the Organizer did the product launch video). Super easy and pleasant to use (very slight pleasant scent). Because it can be used to protect paint and trim etc, I don't have to worry about wax getting on the black trim, I coated all the paint, trim, wheels and it looks great. I drove my car home from the dealership, dusted it off and applied it. The product seems to work exactly as advertised - super slick gloss and tight beading. The UV/chemical resistance is supposed to be very good, but I haven't had the car long enough to comment on that yet. The maintenance is super easy - just wash your car and spray on while car is wet, towel off. At $35 a bottle, for someone who is willing to do some minimal maintenance, it might be a good and much cheaper alternative to the $1,000 ceramic coating. I can probably do my car 15x with this bottle, since so little product is required.
Will do.Would be interested to see how long it lasts before a new coat needs to be applied. Please keep us updated.

How did that turn out? I decided not to do a proper ceramic coat and will instead use a ceramic wash (MFinity Preserve). While I can expect a nice finish on the paint, I'm not sure how the cladding will turn out.
Perhaps I will try that on an older car first 😊 Thanks for the tip.15 March / 2021
SHINEY TIRES & VEHICLE TRIM.
I have been using only LEMON PLEDGE furniture polish / wax on all plastic and rubber trim including tire side walls for some time now .
This product lasts just as long as others and make the tires in particular look as if i had just purchased them .
I dont care for the super shiny look as it cheepens the the look of the car.
In my oppinion the the vehicle paint work should look better than the tirim.
I will try to remember to date my post in the future as a piece of paper is worthless with out a date.
