What is opti coat pro +? never heard of a + version. Can you tell me the difference? thanks!
It's a new version that includes a second layer of coating for increased gloss, slickness and waterspot resistance over regular Opti Coat Pro.

Just more marketing to justify the insane pricing for Opticoat now. Thank god I bought one of the last syringes of Opticoat last year. It's not that complicated to apply. Even if I don't
get a 5 year warranty I'm still farther ahead reapplying every other year than paying for the ridiculous $500+ these days.

Sorry you feel that way man. I assure you it's not just marketing. I'm putting it on a Chevy Volt right now. We are working to have the warranty extended an extra two years with Pro+ as well. The version you got last year is not Pro, it's 2.0. Different product. Glad it's working for you.

Yes you can but Opti coat Pro doesn't protect against stone chips. That is where paint protection film comes in.

Detailing only cleans and maybe waxs the car (depending on the dealer) that would not protect against stone chips, you would need some sort of front clear film protector as the person above me already said.

For best results get it protected with Opti Coat or something similar & then get the film applied to the car fro protection.

Considering getting Opti Coat for a new TLX I brought a month ago. Just curious about washing the car. My old car I just take it through a touchless car wash at a gas station and call it a day. Can I still do that with Opti Coat applied?

Hi yes you can, actually it will clean a little better. We also offer Ceramic Pro. Gloss coat is good for 2 years.

Good to know! I'll be away on vacation for couple of months so probably won't have time to get it done until I'm back. Just wanted to do some research for now. Is Opti Coat what I should go for if I want to protect and keep the paint looking new?
