I've also recieved a free bottle of Permanon Platinuim - have you heard of it? http://www.permanonusa.com/Platinum.html. All you need to do is spray on a prepped surface and it immediatly bonds and can be washed off. I'm yet to try it out as I corrected the paint on the M3 the other week and applied the jetseal as I want to use it up first before trying anything else.
Aidan, depends what you are looking for. I haven't had a chance to try those products you have mentioned. However, I believe these are the market leaders as they tick more boxes than the products you have mentioned.
I have heard of The BF Wet Diamond having superb gloss levels, but I could not tell you how they compare against these 2.

The Permanon products are hopeless. Have used them before and they do not last. I guess a free bottle is nice though

There are MANY products out there that offer benefits but it comes down to preference.

I will eventually coat the wheels, metal parts and plastics/trim too with 22PLE

We are also testing a couple of new Nanolex Sealants on a new Gallardo with matte paintwork and yet ANOTHER VO 1M soon too

Cheers mate. Yeah the 1Ms look tough.

Con, technically, you could. But you probably wouldn't bother with these coatings. However, I have a habit of wet waxing every time I wash the car.

Thanks mate. Yeah same as the E9X M3 Competition wheels. They look aggressive!
