Anyone w/ OC on Black after 3 mos or more?

I think OC it's a waste of time and money on black, no matter how obsessive you get and how many thousands of micro-fiber clothes you are using per square inch.

I even tend to believe OC is a waste on any paint. It looks amazing when fresh, but it's just as sensitive to swirls and scratches like the original clear coat. It doesn't protect you like a clear-bra (never expected, just saying) and it doesn't protect you from swirls/web. So what does it do? Water pearls? For $1k?

Can anyone post some pic of a black/metallic in sun/direct light so we can see how effective the OC is after (at least) 3 mos? I would LOVE to be proven wrong.

God dam, this Pinot Grigio is stronger that I thought ...
