    Diamondbrite

    I am due to collect my 997s on Sunday. Dealer phoned to try and convince me to have car coated with Diamondbrite from Jewel Ultra. Anyone have any experience with this product?

    Re: Diamondbrite

    Went to there site .....
    Sounds too good to be true
    which means it probably is..
    I always love these phrases:
    The Diamondbrite process has to be applied professionally by a registered Dealership, Centre or Valeting Service; this is due to the nature of the process and the 6-year guarantee.
    Then there are the Aftercare products.

    Dealers lining there pockets
    Spending the amount of money you are on a 997 won't they toss it in as a gift , since it is so great

    Re: Diamondbrite

    I had Diamondbrite put on my 530d BMW for free by the dealer 18 months ago. It is a complete waste of time to be honest. It is only a polish treatment (and not a very good one at that). Polish cannot prevent stone chips and my BMW is metallic black and it didn't stop it from quickly getting swirl marks when washing it either. Don't waste your money. You have been warned.

    Re: Diamondbrite

    Absolute waste of money....Doesn't work as well as Klasse, as ISUK says you've been warned

    Re: Diamondbrite

    Thanks for the replies - I will say no!

    Re: Diamondbrite

    will it be no cost rh997?

    Re: Diamondbrite

    I agree - I went for something similar in my last car - cost me about Pounds500. Made no difference whatsoever after a few days.

    Re: Diamondbrite

    PCEL treated my 997 with Supaguard on the exterior when they delivered it, and so far (after 3 months), the wax shine is still effective. After cleaning the car still looks waxed, and the water beads on the paintwork.

    Not sure how much of this is due to additives applied by my local hand car wash however.

    Re: Diamondbrite

    The dealer quoted 299 pounds - just under $600

    Re: Diamondbrite

    no my opinion is NOT to do it, keep your money that s hundreds of hand washes in your local gas station.
    Tell him to save his polish and just keep your car

    Re: Diamondbrite

    Had it on my last car - a waste of money, did not make any real difference after a month or so.

    Re: Diamondbrite

    If you really give a damn about the paint finish on your new car you shouldn't even let the dealer wash it, or do any preparation at all. Ask to have it delivered 'in the plastic' and do it yourself. Otherwise you're going to end up with a badly swirled and scratched car. When I look in showrooms at expensive new cars it makes me sick to see what's happened to them. It's rare to see a car without swirls on it, and it just means work for you to put it right.

    Another thing, don't get any special treatments, you might aswell set fire to the money, it'll achieve the same thing.

    As someone else has said, spend the money getting your own products, and spend some time on the Autopia forum to learn how to properly look after your car's paint.

    All of this is just my opinion by the way!

    Re: Diamondbrite

    When mine was done I was left with white residue left in between panels and seal edges. Half hearted job.

    If you want it done properly...

    Re: Diamondbrite

    My wife's car has had Diamondbrite treatment, I am happy with it, her car is rarely washed, never waxed and stands out in all weathers, i am certain it stays clearner longer and looks better than it would otherwise.
    On my 997S I would not consider it, I am happy to wash and wax it and I agree it is not the best finish for a car that is well looked after. However many people just want to drive their Porsche and feel washing it is a waste of driving time, if that is you a glaze treatment of some sort may make sense.
