Re: It's like a black mirror..

Does anyone find that the brilliant black keeps a "clean look" longer than just a straight black?

Looks great and the 20% is a perfect match.

Re: It's like a black mirror..

I'm lucky enough to have covered parking at home and at work. A daily wipe with a quick detailer spray and I'm good. The covered parking helps with overnight dew/moisture settling in, attracting dust.

I do think the reflective/sparkling properties of the paint help give the illusion of being cleaner but my dirty microfiber tells me otherwise.

Re: It's like a black mirror..

Were you able to negotiate the cost of the clear bra? How much did you have done? Is it visible?

Re: It's like a black mirror..

I went to Invisishield at Driver's choice.
Very visible at first. Now that its staring to cure a lot less.

The line edge on the hood holds dust you must remeber to wipe away from the edge not towards it, in order to not force debris under the line edge.

I know it's there. I had to point it out to others.

Already earning it's keep. This morning bugs wiped off with hardly any effort.

No price was as advertised. 495.

Front bumper, front edge of hood and fenders, grill and side mirrors.

I am happy and would recommend it.

Yes I think it does. Honestly, you have more trouble keeping the wheels clean than the paint. The Brembos are not the cleanest brakes. :-)

That sounds like a great deal! I only have XPEL near me, but they and 3M use the same pics. Maybe its the same stuff. XPEL quotes 795 retail for what you said. I hope I can get it for 500. I might upgrade to the entire hood if I can.

I went with black chrome. I'm sure it's going to be difficult to say the least. If only neverwet would come out with a consumer product soon.
