Exceedingly shiny.

You need to get it dirty asap and pile some miles onto it now!!

When I bought the RS6, i went and did Wales Rally GB long weekend spectating. did well over 1,000 miles around welsh countryside and you could not see any of my paintwork or windows by the time i got home, it was absolutely plastered in mud! Very Happy

I had Gyeon MOHS on my last car and it still looked fantastic 3.5 years after I applied it - only very light swirling starting to show.
Another +1 for Gyeon. Had my 911 (and then also my wife's car done at Staffordshire Car Care) and have been very impressed.

Mike from EliteCarCare/Gemclean/Mulgari did my 993 a few years ago using Gteq's range of products.

A simple hose pipe was all i used to get the muck off it for the good part of 18 months. Would highly recommend using ceramic coatings. You can use them on top of paintshield as well which gives the added protection.

The photos don't really do the job justice.

I find there is no point in polishing mine, as it just gets full of dirt / stone chips / mud, the car has done 20 miles from new, and is covered in stone chips Sad

What a great read this thread has been - particularly interesting comments from madge and mark pearce. AlpinaB3 - wow what a finish on your car there! Lovely job - and I like the stick on number plate!
I love detailing and for what it's worth I have tried almost every brand out there, for me Zaino is the best. Never tried anything ceramic though, so this was educational.

I'm a big convert to the ceramic coatings!

After using wax for years I took the plunge last year & after buying a new daily driver, I took the opportunity to do both cars with Geyon MOHS Q2.

It was a lot of effort to clean the car properly & apply the coating, but it still looks amazing after 2 years with only a couple of top ups with wet coat!

Still glossy & beads like nothing else!
I could quite easily clear a cabinet of all the products I don't use any more!

My advice is do it! You won't regret it in the slightest!

On my previous car I always also used Zaino Z-2 Pro Show Car Sealant, the more layers you apply the better finish becomes. Unfortunately you can not use Zaino Z-2 sealant on PFF film. However I still use their car Z7 shampoo on the 911. Applying multiple layers of Zaino Z-2 can be tedious in its application as you need apply Z-6 Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer Spray between layers however you are rewarded with a great and durable finish that will last a year.
