What products did you use and would you recommend? I’m not sure about a clay bar on brand new paint but it looks great!

Only had to clay bar the upper rear bumper and front upper part where plastic from factory didn’t cover as it was covered in tiny rust marks probably the train journey up from Germany, had this before, sparks from overhead train cables.

I used opti-gloss, not very well known but it’s very good, used it before on previous cars, it comes in two parts, enough to give two coats of ceramic then a water repellent.

That’s great, thanks for the link. Pretty good value too considering how much I pay for Autoglym.

I'd not use that because I've nowhere to guarantee the paintwork stays dry (rain) for the curing period. I use G-Techniq C2V3 every 6 months
