22PLE

Anybody have any experience with this product? It seems like there's a ton of review on Opti-coat and not so much on 22PLE. I just bought some Menzerna Power Lock and trying to decide if i should just do the 22PLE instead. Apparently it's "easier" to apply than Opti-coat and will not stay on permanently.

22ple is a nice product we sell it as well as apply it on cars, what are you looking for exactly in regards to a wax or sealant or coating?

I park my car outside so i'm looking for the best protection from the element (dust, water, and etc). Of course, i want the best gloss and depth, but i'm willing to sacrifice some of that for added protection. Do you think 22ple will give a better gloss when compared to Opti-coat?

it's not really a fair test though because its not on the same car and exact same paint color etc.

Bumping up an old thread! I'm thinking of Opti-coat for my F30 when it comes in. Should I opti-coat the whole car for the protection, and then use a clear film clear coat for the front bumper? Or is opti-coat strong enough to protect the front bumper also?

Opti-Coat will not be strong enough to protect your bumper from rock chips and etc. What a lot of people do is clear bra the bumper and cover the bra with Opti-Coat.
