I have it. Dood it's awesome. Yes it is worth it. I paid a buddy whose a professional detailer $500 for a major paint correction and Opticoat service. Opticoat service was only $100, but I believe now he charges $400 bc Optimum (the company) made it much more expensive.

It's 3x harder than factory clear coat, so you can be more lenient when washing your vehicle, if you do scratch it'll just be on the opticoat not the paint. It's beads and sheets water perfectly. UV protection and it's shedding agents are great, dirt/debris comes right off. You can put a wax on top but apparently it sheds the wax completely within a month. It looks great too, really deep and glossy shine.

I was told it's permanent but it'd be ideal to have it buffed off (only way possible to remove it) and have it re-applied every 2yrs to keep it in tip-top shape. Since it can't be stripped by ANY chemical you can use any car shampoo as strong as you want, making it easier to wash than using a wax-friendly shampoo.

If you want to see pictures of my car I have a lot in my garage and photo album. They don't do it any justice though. For the beading, sheeting, scratch resistance, ect., you'll just have to experience in person.

I don't know why more people don't have this product.

500 seems reasonable for a 40k investment

Professional wax kits can cost anywhere from $100 to $300+ (even up to $800). Not to mention you have to apply and reapply wax typically every 3months to get the best performance out of it. Applying wax can take hours to even a whole day for amateurs. Lastly, if you use the wrong soap it can come right off.

So in 2yrs, it's a great value. You put it on once and it can take anything you throw at it (besides a rotary buffer).

If you care ab your paint and want it to be in the same great condition it is in now and years from now, it's a no-brainer. Yes.
