I used opti-seal on my car and my mothers brand new F30 328 and it lasted 2 weeks max each after 3-4 rainy days throughout that period on both of our cars. Her's had 1 coat and mine had 2 coats of Chemical Guys XXX paste wax on after the opti-seal. Am I doing something wrong? I've been using the XXX wax before, but I never experienced deterioration like this. Top panels did fine, but it's the lower panels that get dirt and road debris that experienced the most deterioration.

I've been moderately detailing for a while now, so I know my ways about sealant and waxes but I feel like I didn't do anything wrong. Especially because I followed advised cure times.

Are you wet-sanding? I wouldn't use wool for anything other than wet-sanding or on extremely faded paint.

After much work with M105/M205, I've found Menzerna polishes to work the best. particularly matched with a green pad (recently replaced w/ pink)
