After an extensive 20 hour paint correction/new car prep on a 2015 Golf R, I applied 22PLE VX1 to protect the paint work. Very easy to apply, just do 1 panel at a time, let it haze and buff with a nice plush microfiber towel. The paint looks dripping wet. You can almost fall into it. The customer could not believe that it was the same car he dropped off.

I've used 22PLE on my 2014 C7/Z51 Corvette Stingray. This product goes on very easily and simply wipes off in 10 minutes. It brings out the luster and deep color of your paint (if prepped properly) and really lasts a LONG time! All you do is go section by section on your car with a few drop of the product and an applicator. Wait 10 minutes and buff off with a MicroFiber towell.

You'll be amazed and Detailed Image is THE place to get this stuff.

The product seems to be beading nicely a few days after application. The product does not spread all that well, and unfortunately this 30ml was not enough to cover my 2015 Mustang completely. If this product lasts at least one year, I will be satisfied. If not I'll look at just using sonax's aerosol, which this seems to be very similar to but not as thick a layer and not as long lasting.

22ple has been my go-to glass coating for several years. The gloss is un-matched in my opinion by any other coating I've used before, and I've tried the vast majority of them. The other factor I love is it's ease of use. Many other coatings can be troublesome to use due to their elaborate installation, and then you're usually battling high spots and other issues. I recently had a client bring in his 612 Scaglietti in for a maintenance detail after 3 years of having had the coating on and the VX1 was still holding strong. I would have to say that no glass coating is a suit of armor, so proper technique to maintain the appearance has to be considered.

So I purchased this product based on the pro reviews. I recently purchased a Ford Excursion and used it as my "test" vehicle. After a long arduous paint cleaning, clay, and correction I IPA wiped the truck then applied the 22ple signature. Even on a vehicle as huge as the Excursion, I still had 1/2 a large bottle left. I was impressed with the level of gloss, and vehicle repelled dust until it was finally rained on. I was shocked at the beading during the first wash as I have never seen such small water beads. Multiple people commented on paint quality and condition of the truck.
I am hoping the durability lives up to expectations as I find my time very limited. As a torture test I decided to treat the truck like a consumer. I power wash it then single bucket wash with a sponge. Drying is accomplished with an old shower towel. So far the product has protected the paint from light scratches (via LED examination) even with that crazy wash routine. It has only been a few months, but so far I am impressed enough to buy a bottle of Pro for my Selby. I will let you know when it appears that the protection has faded.

A quick follow up for my initial review. The excursion that I coated months ago still looks great. I noticed that the coating endured the abuse of a service mat on the fender along with a few of my careless washes. The product isn't a panacea for all abuse, but it certainly seems to reduce the amount of scratching. I have also noted that in dusty Arizona the truck stays cleaner longer extending my wash periods. I was impressed enough to buy more and coated 2 more vehicles since my first application. A quick pointer, if you over apply and let the product set, you can go back and level with an IPA wipe and reapply to fix any issues. See my review in the 22PLE pro product page to read how my Shelby went.

I bought the Signature version of this because I was too impatient to wait for the Pro version to ship. Looking at the results of my application, I'm not quite sure I could see the Pro being any better, because my car looks amazing. Application couldn't be any easier. As stated by the instructions, the shine improved over the days following application. It has been over two weeks since I applied it and my car still looks great. I just washed it and was impressed by how effortlessly my mitt traveled across the surface. I noticed a huge difference in sheeting water off the car (there was almost no water left!). This product is amazingly simple to apply and amazingly effective.

This is a fantastic product, but there are a couple things that I've not seen mentioned anywhere: 1) unlike most fragrant-smelling waxes, this product has a very strong smell. You must use a mask and have adequate ventilation; and 2) even with very limited experience, you can get at least two cars out of the largest sized container. In any event, VX1 is easy to apply and truly offers great protection. Yest, it is expensive, but well worth it.
