Wow, very good reviews here. Good price some more. I went to GZox glass coating & they quote me RM2200 for the cheapest variant. Blardy expensive. SG is also considered as glass coating, right?
Yes its a combination of silika and quartz coating. For RM700 and a 5 yr warranty, i wont complain. biggrin.gif

But for only RM700 and a 5 year warranty, i would say its worth a try. Even if it lasts 2 years ill be happy. But Mr Choong is a very friendly person and quite accomodating. Give it a try. U wont regret.

That is my thought also. I did SierraGlow also, more than happy if it can last me 3 years for RM700. I got more than my money back.
I am the lazy type, i wash once a week with soap. 45 minutes tops. If it gets too dirty before i have time to wash it, i just rinse the car with water and it is almost look spanking new. Very good for a 5 minute job, just rinsing with water. rclxms.gif

RM2200??

I can repaint the car with the price after few years. Rather spend for regular wax & polish.

^Yeah, so I didn't go for it. Went for Sierra Glow instead, about a month ago. Very satisfied with the outcome. The boss, Mr Choong, is also very nice and friendly. Plan to SG coat my other car as well soon, after repainting.

From what I gather (read many pages of forum threads and articles LOL), they will touch up portions for you if needed but it is not covered under warranty.

Anyway, my main concern is, I have not much time to wash my car. I can afford 20 mins to rinse and dry my car every few days though. If Sierra Glow can keep my car in a condition where the majority of it is easy to clean for a year or more, I'll be more than happy to spend that few hundred already. By the way, I rarely get caught in jams and city traffic happy.gif Parking can be scary sometimes though. Some people just don't use brains when they open their doors.

I know a car which did SG.... he loves it... just water the car and dry it. So easy.

But when I saw his car... its full of swirl marks.... just like any car which have been regularly washed at the roadside RM6 washers.

I took my car for proper detailing... and wash it myself from then on... 1 yr down the road.. no swirl marks.

A regular run the mill sedan... maybe.

Anyway, RM2~2.5k is standard for those glass/diamond coat. A mate bought a pre-owned carrera and the authorised dealer throw in the coat...

I thought it should be good and MUST be good since you all have warranty up to 5 years..if anything not good can simply go to get your warranty..hehe

SG was a wonderful product. After 2 years my car still look shinny after wash. Evn though the water slips away easily. Not to say i am over exaggerrated. Maybe my 4th year i will redetail again. Or i do hope Mr. Chong can provide touch up package for second time customer...

I agree with the reviews as well, after 1.5 years the SG effect is still there. Water beading after a normal wash. I plan to send my other cars to get it coated there as well!

I did the SG on my new Optima 2 weeks ago. SG is meant to protect the paint from oxydisation not damage. Its 5 year warranty covers the paint quality. SG is not meant to protect against physical scratches or damage from flying stones on highways. It does provide a certain degree of protection as it covers the original paint with another layer but dont expect some extraordinary protection.

With the Sierra Glow, u wont need to polish or wax for 5 years or so they claim. But for periodic maintenance, u must use the clay bar (which is simple enough). Normal washing is recommended. Avoid going to car washes as they use strong detergents and cloths in bad condition which may damage the paint surface.

But for only RM700 and a 5 year warranty, i would say its worth a try. Even if it lasts 2 years ill be happy. But Mr Choong is a very friendly person and quite accomodating. Give it a try. U wont regret.

Hi there,

I would be really appreciate if you could answer some of my doubt here...

I just done my sierra glow last two months ago, and recently after washing my car, i can see a lot of water spot on my car which i try to wipe it off, but it is just hard to get it off, i m wondering what DIY treatment that i can do to get it off, i saw some comments from web saying using white vinegar, i wonder can i use it? Will is fade away my sierra glow treatment? or any other treatment that is recomended?


Thank you in advance!

Actually, of all the fabulous comments about SG.... there is one bad comment I heard...but this lazy bum never know how to clean his car....he never dry his car until all the water spot were impossible to remove...especially at the bonnet area

So if you wanna add a coat of SG, or whatever product, and just leave the car without taking care of it....even the best coats will not give you the best protection..
