Some good info on the Forensic Detailing channel https://youtu.be/uXynw5a6EZo

His recent garage clear out vid was a great summary of best bits :)
The Forensic Detailing Channel is brilliant and why I chose Gyeon Syncro.

John obviously likes his BMW’s, is he on here?

Not sure but he's had a few BMs. It's good as products will suit our paint, leather etc :band:

Never seen this channel! Very unbiased review imo.

The middle coating that left a lighter looking effect is terrible!!

Definitely a case of getting what you pay for by the looks for it.

Racey1979 swears by it's longevity but if you don't feel comfortable with the price of such stuff you could try Sonax BSD very impressive for the price of it and a hoot to apply...It gets excellent reviews online...

i did mine a couple of weeks ago or more with it and its is still super shiny and beading like a goodun..

I use this on the wife’s car! There’s no other QD as good imo. Such an underrated product.

I just wonder if the cost of buying the ceramic (the Q2 stuff I mention is £89) is worth the results over a coat of wax every 6 months and topped up with a QD every so often.
Any QD, whether a cleaning detailer or a wax type detailer will remove the base wax.

Car doesn’t live outside but it’s been on 4 months and still looks great, deep shine and very easy to clean.

The wheel coating from Gyeon is especially impressive.

Thanks for this bud!

Fully agree it’s all about prep - luckily the car is in pretty could shape so a light polish should see it through, then a wipe down with Gyeon prep.

And likewise, mine also lives inside.

Do you use the Gyeon Cure to top it up or hasn’t it been long enough to do anything yet?

I’ll have to check the wheel coating.
No worries.

I have used the Cure once (came in the kit) but to be honest it’s the least impressive product I’ve tried from them.

Seems to dull the finish a little and doesn’t “add” any hydrophobicity - maybe it’s better used as the Syncro wears off?

Now I just pre-wash with their Foam followed by Bathe Essence and use a leaf blower to dry it. Great results, very little effort or paint contact.
Cure mot certainly adds hydrophobicity, though it's designed more for shine than durability, and needs to go back after every second wash. If it looks dull after use then this will be because too much product was applied. If you're struggling with it, you can use on a damp (not wet) car to aid shine, at some loss of durability. It's a solid, easy to use QD that affords several weeks protection (which is more than many QDs out there).
