Hang on ah, I need to check what pads I bought from Osren back then:

Was using Perfect Cut 20 cos my paint is soft and car relatively new at the time.

Pads I bought were:

1x Blue Hybrid Wool

1x White Polishing

1x Black Finishing

I think I was using blue + PC20 to polish and finish using the black pad...

Which combination is the one dusting a lot? I know when I do LC MF + 46 it will dust.

For my experience, the Osren Coatz lasts about 1 years + for my situation... parked outdoor. I paid RM225 back in 2017 (before GST), so about RM238.50 for the kit.

Well... charge her RM1000 tongue.gif, its about 1/3 of the other price haha! Besides whatever brand ceramic coating you talking about, they won't last forever... let alone those 5 years warranty etc.

Actually can last longer if you spray wax frequently. I do it after every wash biggrin.gif... 5 mins can kaotim the whole car.

CarPro Reload is the spray SiO2, but at a premium price  brows.gif even with the 7.7 also is RM154 for 500mL  sweat.gif

IMHO Reload is overated. There are other alternatives out there smile.gif

you need more pads so that you can rotate them during polishing as DA pads tends to head up after prolong use. Plus polishing pads should be clean during use la smile.gif

Hmm, should be the blue wool + PC20 combo. Don't dare to use DA for long and put too much pressure vs rotary cos my first time using the DA. It was really easy to use though.

Hmm, so let's say car has coating on, all I need to do is regularly maintain with the existing spray waxes I have? Sealants also can or basically redundant?

I did come across Meg's Deep Crystal Top Coat spray when I went to Parkson earlier this year and kept wondering what was it for cos it doesn't look like spray wax...

Sifu, speaking of pads.

I actually bought this one before I got my DA.

Wondering if these would be a good use? Or not cos I did read up thereafter that it's better to get pads that are 'flat' or those waffles weaves design...

These pads have not been used at all since I bought them since I was using the Osren ones instead...

The beads on the Skoda looks impressive.

Then again, it is paste wax. So results tend to be quite good.

I would say given the convenience and time spent, a spray wax would also give similar results. Don't even need to let it cure and just buff off immediately, like Meg's HCW.

Anyways, how much roughly would the Taiwanese wax cost?

If it's sub RM100, might as well get Soft 99 Paste Wax/Kiwami type.

Wow, quite a price indeed.

I would probably suggest looking at alternatives available here and still have change to spare if based on that pricing.

Haha sure bro...

180 days ... hmm.gif that's 6 months man.

If they truly manage to convert Fusso Coat's famed hydrophobic capabilities into spray form, that's gonna be mightily impressive! thumbsup.gif
