6 month review of Cilajet

Bought my car in April and the dealer was pushing Cilajet pretty hard. I kept saying 'no' and he kept dropping the price. When he said "ok...$200 and you get the full exterior with wheels and the interior protectant too. Lifetime warranty. If you ever get a stain on the seats, carpet, or blems in the paint bring it back and we'll make it right." So I bit and had it done.

I'm not new to buying cars and the crap they push, but I figured for $200, what the heck. Right off the bat the car looked great. Water beaded up well and the car was very slick. Pretty much what I would expect from a detail with polish and wax. I figured it wouldn't last though.

Fast forward to last weekend, 6 months later. Now I have been washing at least every 2 weeks, so the car never gets really dirty, but I missed a wash a couple weeks ago, so it hadn't had a bath in a month. Roads have been getting paved all around my house, so I've been driving on new tar a bunch. I broke down last weekend and washed the car and there was a ton of tar splatter behind the rear wheels. With only rag and car soap, the tar washed right off. So it seems to have held up pretty well. All summer, bugs and crap on the front came right off without any effort.

So if you can swindle a cheap deal, I'd recommend it.

Oh...and as far as the interior. My 14 yr old football player got in the car after a muddy football game. Dirt vacuumed right out of the pax seat and left no residue. Not bad.

I got them to throw it in for free, along with winter wheels and tyres, clear bra, and a bunch of protection plans ( the 2012s were on the way and they had 4 2011 gtis they needed to get rid of) I am pretty satisfied with the Cilajet so far. Good to hear positive reviews 6 months later.

I figured it was uber cheap at wholesale. He started at $800, then went to $200 without blinking. Kinda tells you what his cost is.
