How is this done and for what reason? Sounds like something I may like to do.

You apply it similar to a wax. It adds some hydrophobic properties to whatever you apply it to so it is easier to clean. Some stuff is better than others. It should Outlast wax but the cheaper stuff is just comparable. I got the chemical guys stuff. It's performance is alright but will definitely be a couple times a year application compared to the higher end coatings that need a dealer to install them.

I didn't realize you couple apply it like a wax. I assumed it was more like a powder coat. I like the idea of better and longer lasting protection. Thanks!

The real fancy stuff you just wipe on, let sit and then rub off the excess. The cheaper stuff you get at stores works just like a wax though. The expensive stuff that needs applied by dealer means you really need to get your paint right before applying as that stuff will not come off anytime soon were as the cheaper stuff will last longer than wax but still come off if you want it to.

Thanks... I also have a set of new BBS wheels to install but I'm going to let the suspension settle some and get an alignment done with the stock wheels before installing the new ones.

I left mine at the dealership for the 5th time since October 2019 so they can work on the persistent rough start, rough idle and loss of power (if it doesn't hydrolock completely) every time its cold in the morning and warm in the afternoon.

its really easy to flash back to stock. i did it before i brought my car to the dealer to get a new tire. was never asked if it was tuned. but my Bluetooth obd2 dongle was in the cup holder when i got it back. I do also have a dsg tune.

I got my DPF and EGR replaced under warranty. Car has about 187k miles, and the soot count was very high, along with a clogged EGR.


I hope the emissions fix doesn't drastically reduce the DPF longevity, as it's been a nationwide problem.
