This Audi A5 came in to our virginia workshop after being owned for around 5 months, it had some swirling and general wear and tear. The owner had decided to get these removed via a paint correction and decided to follow it with OPTI-COAT PRO paint protection so he wouldn't need to wax or polish the vehicle again.
The swirl marks had appeared on the paint work just through regular incorrect washing techniques (using just one bucket) and local car washes. The customer had been very dissapointed with local "detailers" that he had used previously. After coating we educated him on how to wash and maintain his car properly to get the most out of the Opti-Coat PRO coating.
After about 6 hours of correction using various pads and compounds the surface was wiped down with IPA (Isopropynol Alcohol to remove all oil residue from polishing) the surface was ready for application. Then it was finished. Modern Audi paint can be quite physically tough but we have all of the right equipment to deal with such challenges.
So maintenance for this Audi owner is now nice and easy. It can just be washed as usual, it's scratch resistant coating will greatly reduce the risk of swirl marks. Bird and bat droppings (which are highly acidic and literally eat through modern clear coats) will now take a lot longer to leave a mark, giving the owner plenty of time to remove it safely.
It's glossy finish will not dull with regular washing, and most importantly no more time and $$ spent on waxing.
