Window Tint + Optimum OptiCoat

Picture it: Early October. Leaves falling. Cool, crisp winds ... SIKE. I live in NC. It was 80 degrees the day I took delivery of my Elantra Coupe SE.

After dealing with paint swirls and scratches and a little bit of premature clearcoat failure on my 2007 tC, I wanted to protect my new baby. After some googling, I came across Optimum Opti-Coat. Read the reviews and was immediately sold.

REVIEWS - Product Review: Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 Detailed Image

Detail and Opticoat 2.0 Application in North Carolina 7/14/12 - Scion FR-S Forum | Subaru BRZ Forum | Toyota 86 GT 86 Forum | AS1 Forum - FT86CLUB <----- This one is what sold me on WHO I chose to do it.

Martin D ( MartinD ) , formerly of a company called AutoFinesse, in Cary, NC took exquisite care of Blanca and took time to educate me on how to preserve his work. Dropped her off at 9 AM, picked her up at 5:45 PM and was literally speechless. He detailed the interior AND exterior and OH MAN. The pictures below don't do it justice (Taken with an iPhone 4S :mellow

His customer service skills need to be documented in a book. He could not only teach a class on detailing, but also on how to treat someone who is paying you for a service! He spent about an hour after I returned to pick up the car explaining the process and how to maintain it. I highly recommend him for ANY detailing needs. Well worth the drive. All around, I rate the experience a 20/10.













Yep. He took the rims off and got up in there too!



No swirls or bugs here, buddy!





It wasn't even this clean when I bought it.

I'm so thrilled. Can't wait to hand wash it for the first time. Apparently, it's an experience!

Congrats! OptiCoat is good stuff. Been using it for about a year now. How much did you pay if you don't mind me asking?

I paid $300. That included a wash, decontamination, clay bar and polish, and then the OptiCoat. He also detailed the interior and exterior, and I left with huge box of products to keep up the job he did! So please!

Mine was $300, which included a wash, decontamination, clay bar and polish, the OptiCoat, and then an complete detail. He also gave me tips on how to keep up the job so it will look like this for years to come! I got a GREAT deal. I advise you to shop around and ask for pictures of people's work. Find a reputable shop! It's a great investment!

For $300 thats really good. I guess it was that good of a price cause of how mint the paint was being new. Nearly no imperfections for him to deal with aside from some light scratches i bet.

The beading looks great. What sort of products have you chosen to maintain it?
