Bought the last bottle at Erin Mills Town Centre. Let's see if this makes my car shine for longer.

I was just explaining why the middle section looks the way it does.

Once I showed how my waxed car beads water to a coworker once, and he actually said "Ewww, all those water droplets is ugly and will cause water spots when it dries". So I wouldn't put it past people to think that they prefer the middle section (unwaxed)

But if you are diligent about applying every 6 months, is this just as good?
yeah different level.

This stuff is good enough for most people. Gives some shine and protection, lasts for a couple of months at least, and easy to apply (an extra 10 minutes worth of effort) and has the same overall effect.

Is it from a pressure washer or does he just have really good water pressure?
Electric pressure washer with upgraded MTM Hydro SGS 28 spray gun and 3/8" Kobrajet hose w/ quick-connects.

Alright, thanks! I'm getting my Model 3 partial PPFd next week and I wasn't sure if I should go for ceramic while I'm at it. I'll just use give it a good wash, clay bar, and this stuff instead.

This is only true if you do not soak your car in soap beforehand. If you hit it with foamy soap, the dirt will be agitated enough to come off easy and provides enough lubricant to prevent scratches.

What makes the ceramic self-cleaning? How can some of these sealants/coatings allow the paint to be self-cleaning for longer than others?

How could one tell whether the TWHCS is still acting like a ceramic coating, how can you tell how long it lasts?
You are what makes it "self-cleaning" when you turn on the garden hose on a Sunday afternoon and spray the car with water. It's called "self cleaning" (which is 100% marketing and taking the piss) because Ceramic coating basically is slick enough to prevent things from sticking to it as much as they would on raw normal clear coat. The length of "self cleaning" is how durable/resistant the chemical is to soaps, degreasers,UV,rain, etc.

You can't really ascertain 100% as to how much of the ceramic coating is left on your car. The best would be to see how water beads. A professional detailer generally determines it by seeing how easily they can polish the paint during paint correction. It can sometimes be a real pain when you're trying to polish paint that has been ceramic coated. A paint depthness gauge can't even tell you either.

True, but @ $5 for shipping, it is cheap. And being in QC, buying 2 bottles from carzilla, is still cheaper than (even paying shipping) than driving to walmart which shows low stock pretty much every location.
Carzilla only charges GST for QC (so you save nearly 10% on PST). Use coupon "RADGARAGE" or "MFRESH" for 5% discount, and overall, even for $5 shipping (which is well below cost surely), you are still ahead of the game. Not to mention that you are supporting a smaller company that has always been there to give honest opinions and help to thier customer.
Everytime I go online to carzilla, I plan on buying 1 item, and then I add all sorts (Menzerna SF Polish 3500 , Iron remover, a pad or two, etc..). Menzerna is in my cart right now, but they just went out of stock on the hybrid ceramic spray. So I'll wait till it's back in stock.

Even tho it is a very slick surface when freshly applied, dirt does stick on the car to some degree, especially the bottom section behind the wheels.
But boy that shine is just amazing, like a mirror.

Did mine 2 months ago and its already not as slick as used to be. So definitely wont last 6 months. I am thinking reapplying every 3 months.
Given it is so easy to apply, I rather do 1 coat every 2-3 months then double coat and hope it lasts 6 months (maybe in Oct/Nov I will do 2 coats and hope it last thru the winter)

Has anyone applied this ceramic spray when car is outdoors? Obviously best indoors where no dust or dirt of any kind. What's your experience?

I haven’t used this product but have used similar. Outdoors is fine so long as the car surface isn’t hot, ideally, an overcast day with paint cool to the touch is best. You don’t want this drying before you can wipe off.

Public Mobile $38/5GB
