Guard X - Paint protection

Hi,

I have read mixed things on the different forums about this product, what is the fest's consensus?

The points I seem to hear are:
1 - It can seal in swirls if the car has not been properly prepared beforehand
2 - It may not last that long and may not be that much better than a good coat of wax
3 - It will help maintain a decent coat, with frequent cleaning of the car...

Anyway, my dealer offered to give me this for free as a token of good will. It would be silly to turn this down, no?



Also, no confirmed date, but think I will be getting my F30 next week.. wiiiiiiii

That is a nice gesture on your dealer's part. Most of these "sealants" are polymers which are now prevalent in many car products today. If it is a polymer product, it will provide you with a good base coat to build upon.

Nothing special about this stuff. Requires monthly maintenance to keep it intact. I guess maybe for free it might be okay. Rather apply my own quality sealant. If you want something truly strong have a quality detail place apply OptiGuard.
