Default It Finally Arrived

My new Q7 is here and they want to sell me a ceramic coating but can't I just use a good wax myself? What's the best one?

yes, you can wax it yourself. They make good money on ceramic coating. I like Zaino Z2 and Collinite 845.

I'm a big fan of ceramic coatings, but would never purchase from a dealer. If you want to go that route find a reputable detailer in your area to do the coating. Will cost less and be better quality.

That said nothing wrong with a traditional wax/sealant. Just have to re-apply 3-4 times per year

As mentioned above, a good ceramic coating will last around 3 years versus traditional wax which needs to be re-applied every 3 months. CQuartz is a good ceramic coating. There are some paint protection products that last only a year. The better ones last for around 3 years to 4 years depending on how often the car is exposed to the elements.
