thanks.

Ive always done paint protection on my own cars as i wont let anyone else touch it.
The majority of dealer paint protection is waste of money. Read the terms and conditions and you will see what i mean.

Obviously, if you can get a tuner for ~$500 and more than 20kW it represents much better value than $1600 and only 20kW...plus you can keep the tuner if the service dealer accidentally re-flashes with the factory settings. But if you're not getting anything, there's no point at all.
My "results" are in this thread - Trinity Results

While I say time better by 2/10th it was hardly conclusive and could just of been the car running in. If I'd had known I would have put the $500 towards the RIPP SC!

Hey mate
Recently I've been using Opticoat. Very happy with it. It's a ceramic coat which lasts much longer compared to other coatings.

I recently put a post up if you want to have a look.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Hi guys,

Just wanted to say hi - I'm in Sydney and recently bought a 2012 JGC SRT8. Hoping to learn a lot more about it from the forums here. I'm also on Whirlpool quite a bit and have been chatting to some of you there esp Snuke.

Hi mate
Are you asking about the coating?
If so, product I use is sold through Zen automotive in Sydney. If you haven't used it before I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself as It needs plenty of prep work.
