Gyeon can coat is better than C2v3.

Its as easy to apply but is a real quartz coating with a 12 month life.

Can we wash the car with ONR and then use this Gtechniq C2 Liquid Crystal?

Is there a tutorial on how to apply this product?

You need to fully prep the surface before applying any ceramic coating. tons of youtube videos out there. Wash, decon, clay, polish and panel wipe. You may not need all of those steps. You may need more prep depending on your paint condition. Last step of panel wipe is essential.

I've been going to a detailer with the last 4 cars we have bought. The coating he used all those times were Cquartz finest.

I've seen the prep work and it's time consuming but needed due the hardened state the CQfinest assumes on the paint after being applied.

However I assumed the coatings mentioned here are not similar or long lasting as the CQ finest so a simple wash and spray would do.

Can someone here advise. I'll be getting a new M2c next week and would like to go this route with this vehicle.
