    Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    Hi guys,

    Porsche UK are trying to sell this as a option on delivery of the car. Apparently its a coating on top of the standard paint which protects against acid erosion, makes it easier to clean ....etc. Did any of you guys order this option on your cars?

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    No IMO it is crap !!!!

    Spend the money on a decent detailing instead...

    If you are going to track the car then it might be worth getting film applied.

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    Buy a bottle of Rejex and apply it yourself.

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    Thats what I was thinking. If its that essential, why not have it on the car by default???? Had to check tho :-)

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    Exactly - detailer better than OPC profit!!!

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    I had to endure a delay on my FL 911, so managed to convience the OPC to throw in the protection. It was Swizzwax....or something like that plus a care kit for me wih additional wax and shampoo etc. They said it was worth about Pounds478.....

    Too early to say if it works, but the car does look lovely.

    It was the only thing I got free!

    I didn't get it. I spoke to the OPC valeter and it'll still need treatment twice a year to keep it in good condition.

    I will zymol mine, love the stuff!

    Re: Paint Protect from Porsche UK on 997.2

    Assuming you wax your car adequately and the car gets garaged at night and on the days it's parked, the only thing that can hurt your paint is leaving bird cr*p on too long.

    Just keep a towel and some water in the car to immediately remove bird doo.

    Otherwise strange "long lasting" polymer coatings are to be avoided IMO.

    Two reasons:

    Applying any coating properly _requires_ lots of time in preparation.

    REMOVING a coating can be extremely time consuming.

    FWIW.
