Correct, they are Momo Winter2's. I liked the Continental DWS on my Civic Si, so I'm running those for winter tires outside of Chicago. Turns out I still like them.

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.

I am definitely interested! I do think I could do something like that on my own even if I were to mess up a little...I always prefer to do it myself. Thanks man for the review of this. I was reading and it said for the entire life of the car it would be on there?

You need to give it a nice polishing before applying because you're locking in the paint for those 2 years. The sealant has only 2 years of effectiveness, not forever, but if you keep reapplying, it'll keep your car looking new for much longer.

Just make sure you apply thin even coatings, you don't want to see any lines of sealant otherwise they may show up after buffing. As a novice, I'd do one panel at a time. Apply and then buff off after 5 minutes, then move on to the next panel. Less is more.

Preparing the paint is just as critical as applying the sealant. I recommend doing a wash, claybar, alcohol bath, polish, alcohol bath again, then sealant. If you need any help feel free to PM me. I always prefer doing things myself and saving money, so good luck.

Current Mods - dipped rims, dipped front end, dipped rear emblems, mud flaps, bike rack.

To do Mods - dip the chrome around the windows including the pillars. Carbon fiber some of interior.
