MKVI BOSER?!?!?

Honestly it depends on how often and what method you want to use to apply it. They have ceramic sprays now. They donít last as long, clearly, but application is as easy as a detail spray or dying agent. I saw one that after you wash the car, with it still wet, you spritz a bit of the stuff on and then immediately rinse it back off with the hose. 🤨

I just got a bottle in the mail today actually. Sterkrazzy posted a link. Itís a new company and they are doing a free trial. 16oz, all you pay is shipping. It came out to $10.70 for me.

I'm gonna try mine this weekend. I'm not sure it's quite a true ceramic coating, but it sounds like it has very good hydrophobic properties and it's insanely easy to use and doesn't streak.

The link is still up - https://hydrosilex.com/products/free...silex-recharge

This spray type ceramic coating I have a feeling will attract dust like a mutha. But for $10 what the heck.

I am thinking of topping my rims that have CQuartz UK on them with Car Pro Gliss. Its a new top coat for ceramic coatings that creates an anti static layer.

I will let you guys know how it works out when I apply it in a couple of weeks..

I went to the Hydrosilx site, says its $59 is there a promo code or something?

You just have to use this link https://hydrosilex.com/products/free...silex-recharge

You can't get to that link by browsing their website. I found it on google trying to look for reviews. I thought it was a mistake on their part at first, so I wasn't sure they were going to honor the order, but they did.

Rear needs a dash of camber and the front needs a little toe adjustment but they're on! I'm in love

first off, just got in on the free sample - the application sounds wierd to me - spray on, rinse off immediately, THEN buff?

Second - holy shit cosmo. those wheels are ridiculous! in with the fitment adjustments.

There are multiple application methods described on their website and I think in the accompanying letter. I donít remember that method being mentioned. Yet that is the only method discussed on the actual bottle. I have seen that application method on YouTube with other products (H2go maybe). The conflicting information just seems odd to me. I opted for the detail spray application method. I put it one side of the hatch as a test. I swear I heard it sizzle when I sprayed it on the diffuser.

Yeah sounds like one of those spray on waxes that you can quickly spray on and wash off. You get yours yet?
