    I agree bro kaya ideal talaga twice a week ang wash ng car.

    Learned it the hard way left the car dirty for a week. Small watermarks can be spotted when parked directly sa light ng garage

    Kaya ako I still stick with the time proven of washing your car regularly (with car shampoo), then apply car wax to maintain the integrity of the paint (like once a month).

    Ceramic coating only enhances your car's paint luster (mahal nga lang).

    Thatís unusual cause I never wash my cars more than once a week & sometimes every two weeks lang but I donít have watermarks with rain. As a matter of fact, during the rainy season, I collect tubs of rain water to use as wash water. The tap water in our village is deep well water which is chock full of minerals which when left undried, leaves nasty white watermarks. I do have a Bosch power washer & a blow drier though & wax after every car wash.

    I had my car coated with Gtechnique CSL (courtesy of Optimum Impressions) and religiously goes to the carwash (with shampoo ofcourse, don't want my car to accumulate microscratches just because it lacked lubrication when it was being washed) atleast once a week. I am thinking of availing tar/asphalt removal every 6 months and claybar atleast once a year. Glass or ceramic coating does not make my car scratch proof/resistant but I treat it as another layer of protection, more like wax but will stay much longer. It's been 3 months since I had my car coated, and until now I am amazed how shiny it is (even when its dusty).

    Totoo to sir. Lalo na sa panahon natin kahit tag ulan biglang sisikat ang araw at matutuyo nalang yung acid rain. Kaya sakit sa ulo na naka coating ako pero nag kaka watermarks pa din. Hassle.

    IMHO, this is only true if you'll believe that you don't need to take care of your car since its already been "coated". It's either you wax it every few months, or have it coated, both options still needs your car to be washed regularly though.

    Which basically boils down to ... If owner is able to take care of the vehicle's paint, then coating is not really necessary ... If the owner does not have the time to do so, then glass coating the vehicle is just a waste ...
