    Ibis S3 withWerkstat acrylic pics

    As above really, i have allways used wax (Zymol glasur) so took a lot of thought wether to swap to a sealant, but pleased with the results it seems to be a deeper better shine which is so difficult to get on a white car


    Enjoy....

    I don't mean to compare e-penises, but unless your photos aren't doing it justice, I'd swear I get better results than this using AutoGlym Extra Gloss Protection (at about 1/6th the cost...)

    The roof looks great, but that's black and glass so not really comparable. I'm sure I get better reflection off the paint, although not quite so much of a wet look. I'll take another look tomorrow, though, I might be kidding myself

    Werkstatt Acrylic ftw! I love it and so simple for me to keep applying or topping up with Werkstatt Glos.
    Dead easy to work with for me when someone like Jim has started it off! lol

    Looking at it in the proper light, you definitely get more of a wet look. Reflection is about the same, but the werkstat makes it look like there's a really thick clear coat which I like. Think I'm going to have to get a set once my EGP runs out.
