Sorry for the late replies @Beachbum07 @rls002 .

Yes the Opti-Coat is still doing great - due to the shelter in place and a long vacation preceeding that I haven't washed it in a while. But I did clean off some bird droppings and as promised it was as easy as pouring watering on the spot and wiping clean. I am a happy camper :)

I got my Opticoat done at Xscend Detailing in Santa Clara CA. Would definitely recommend them of Opti-Coat application

I’ve scheduled the Opti-Coat Pro+ service for this Friday. Want to get it done before the finish is subjected to the harsh environment for too long. My waxing days are over, so I’m looking forward to a long term shine, and lower maintenance.

just out of curiosity, what does Opti-coat cost for a vehicle as large as Passport?

Someone's gotta say it ... y'all are crazy spending (those Big) $ on appearances; but then I blow cash on my vices (firearms, booze, dogs) so why not?
To date I've not yet washed (vac'd, dusted) my PP (plenty of hosings).

Yeah, imagine someone actually wanting their new vehicle to look nice....

I've been in the predicament of my previous vehicle having some nasty seemingly permanent bird dropping stains. I really wanted to try and prevent that.

I take pride in keeping my Passport clean. Opticoat ceramic protection intrigues me, but I can't justify spending that much money.

I've had aftermarket coatings on my 85 Prelude and 2012 BMW and was happy with them both, but on the Car Care websites the DIY crowd always likes the manual waxes/coatings.

So for the PP, I went with the Wolfgang WG-5500 Polymer Sealant (link below) and I gotta say, it goes on & off SUPER EASY, and leaves an AWESOME shine, I can't speak on longevity yet, but the reviews say it lasts a long, long time. Speaking of the reviews, 600+ people on Amazon have rated it at 93% (4+5 stars) and I agree!

LASTLY: The way I discovered the Wolfgang 5500, is doing some internet search for "Best Wax" and Wolfgang Sealant was rated number 1 or 2 numerous times!

I look at the coating as an upfront investment that will pay off in the long run. I don’t like waxing cars, and can’t do it anymore. The coatings will give the PP an extra layer of protection with very minimal maintenance.
