Default Modesta BC-04

Has anyone here had their Audi ceramic coated with Modesta? I am scheduled to have my Glacier White A5 coated with Modesta BC-04 next month, and wanted to know what your thoughts / experiences are.
Thanks.

Modesta is a mainstream and popular ceramic coating. It's supposed to be very good, good durability. I believe it's only for sale to pro shops, not a DIY.

I had my A5 coated with Modesta BC-04 and I am thrilled with the results. The installer did a tremendous job and the finish is super glossy and hard. Looking forward to the long term benefits of this coating. Highly recommended!

Igl Kenzo is a fantastic product. Also a pro install. Where are you located.

Wilmington NC. The installer, Manny Llanos, owner of Personal Touch detailing did a fantastic job of paint correction, prep and coating!

I live in Chicago also and have a black A7 with CQuartz Pro coating. I use CarPro Reload to maintain the coating. Every month just spray on and wipe off following a wash

Follow the instructions that your installer recommends for your coating. Generally try to wash the car at least weekly using ph neutral soap and 2 bucket wash method, followed up by whatever spray conditioner the coating recommends. Try not to use automatic car washes. Dry your car using a blower if you can. Less direct touching will minimize scratches and swirls.

I might have posted this a while back on a different thread and if so apologies for the duplicate.

This is a good video on maintaining a ceramic coasting

This is an excellent video produced by a well established name in auto detailing - Esoteric Car Care and I have watched it a few times already prior. I'm a huge fan and I have bought plenty of products from Esoteric - most notably Kamikaze Coatings. In the next few weeks I will be using those coatings as well as their dedicated coating topper (called Overcoat). For me an admitted detailing enthusiast, besides the usual good washing tips, Todd's suggestions to use a dedicated maintenance product and not to apply a smattering of different detailers and waxes resonates with me. You have an excellent coating, why "hide" it with a lesser quality product. Speak to your installer for what they recommend.
I would also caution against bringing your car into the car wash places - even the better ones unless absolutely necessary. They use powerful chemicals and worn and dirty towels for drying. Using them your car will look cleaner, but will develop micro scratches.
