From what you say it would be a waste of £800; unless you are prepared to put in the time and effort on a regular basis you won’t see any real benefits.

Road-side washes will keep your car in an acceptable condition (provided you choose wisely!)

You do need to take some care to maintain it. If you go to a hand car wash and they spray acid on the wheels and aggressive cleaner on the bodywork then you are going to quickly lose the effect so in that situation, I wouldn’t bother.

Thanks for the advice and I tend to agree - it sounds like a coating isn’t worth it for someone like me.

I’ve booked mine in for the full correction and ceramic coat mid Aug. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Hi all. I am taking this slightly off-thread.... what are people’s views on Gen3 Glasscoat? I am told this is a super hard-wearing coating that works really well. Applied by Porsche Sheffield for £400. Has anyone had any experience of this product ?
Thanks

My Macan GTS has this coating and it’s quite good I think. The car still looks good and is now just over a year old. It had already been applied to the car when we bought it.

Mine has it and at 2.5 years old it looks no different from any other 2.5 year old car I’ve ever owned. At the end of the day being applied at the dealer, it’s never going to be as good and a professional detailing outfit. Mine is now booked in for ceramic coating that takes 5 days, I wouldn’t expect the coating from the dealer to be anything like that.
