Great! I've never scraped! The only thing that ever hits is those dumb flaps that hang well below the bumper. I talked about the ride quality about one page back on this thread.

I also have a whole thread devoted to the springs. James could supply a link but I'm not as cool as him.

So for an average joe like me how much would I end up paying for something like that? How sweet does it look compared to original?? and 18 months! geeze so no waxing just washing every once in a while??

If you don't have any detailing inclination, you'd have to pay a detailer to do it. Not sure how much they'd quote you. If you were interested, and you wanted to come up to Sac, I could ask for you. You have to polish, properly prepare the surface, and evenly apply the coating.

The coating made a very noticeable difference, that pant looks wet and super glossy and feels silky, I barely had to use soap when I washed my car yesterday from driving in the rain, most remaining dirt slid off.

not sure what you mean? this is a sealant, it protects the paint and makes the surface easier to maintain.
