My name is Jonathan i am new to this forum, but a veteran on a few others (6speed - Bimmer post - RDF - Helifreak).
I was looking at Modesta Aftercare and came across your thread on the product. I found out about it from a member in my M5 forum whom had his M5 detail by Paul in the UK using Modesta. I did not know who Pual was nor anything about Modesta but his review was awesome. I did a lot of research and decided i would get my new M5 coated with it. I called up my normal Opti coat installer John Gray from Gulf Coast Auto Shield and asked if he would be willing to give it a go on my new car.
He spent 20hrs of work
over two 2 days prepping and applying the primer, BC-5, and M1 shot. I have Opti on my other cars so i can compare to Modesta. He also removed the wheels, coated the glass, Calipers, tail pipes and head lights with Opti products.
I was only with the car three days after the coating was applied and then had to leave for work. I won't be back for another two weeks but I am looking forward to see how its has fully curried. They say it take about two week and the gloss enhances as it cure.
My initial review it that the product is AWSOME. Very different from Opti. The FEEL was my first noticed change. At one point John told me I had to stop touching it! You can really feel the coating it feels thick, slick and almost plastic like the new iPad air screen. The gloss is also unreal. It was more than opti.
The day after the coating was installed i headed to a local motor shop to get some work done and the car got rained on. When i pulled in to the shops garage the car was 98% dry. The only water left on it was on the rocker panels. I was impressed. So far i give it a thumbs up and a big thanks to John!!
(Note this is my first glass coat) Lets hope it lasts.
Looking forward to see what others think of the product and learn about proper aftercare. Feedback please
