    i didn't see that. btw, you spoke to the Asian chemists? or was that message from one of the marketers like Avi or Corey?

    listen, i want it to work. i think the idea of Essence is awesome. but, since i use OPT coatings and saw that this dude Yvan already nixed the idea, i had to ask the Dr. and that's what he said.

    that autopia test is cool, but if a coating is designed to last three years and lasts eight months or a year, then that's quite a fall in performance but might be hard (impossible) to detect without waiting eight months to see. i doubt Essence is going to make a coating fail in a couple weeks or months lol

    Cruz did you ever end up buying this?

    If you didn’t...do it now!

    When I first saw this post, I thought to myself, “THERE IS NO WAY THE GLOSS ON ALL THOSE CARS CAN LOOK JAW DROPPING!”

    I was about to post a mini review, but OP I will coat-tail this thread:

    (Pictures coming soon)

    I had the exact same reaction as OP using this for the first time on a 2015 Black Range Rover...WOW! WOW! WOW!

    I called up Carpro-US right away and asked “Is it THAT possible to achieve very satisfying results in just 2-3 passes alone—using Rupes 21 MK II AND a Rupes Yellow pad?”

    They said, “When used properly, ABSOLUTELY!”

    I wanted to cry with the results I was seeing. Unfortunately, my client was not home to see the final results.

    Wish I tried this earlier in life. It saved me so much time. Plus I topped it off with Reload.

    Oh yeah, a few more things:

    1) This stuff wipes off like a DREAM!
    2) The initial slickness (without topping with Reload is REALLY GOOD!
    3) Topped with Reload enhanced everything IMO.

    In addition to the exterior, I did a complete interior also—all in 7 hours.

    Not bad considering my exterior prep took me longer than I wanted (1 1/2 hours).

    Anyone ever tried:

    Essence + Reload + PA High Gloss?
    Or
    Essence + PBL Synergy + PA High Gloss?

    (I’m not a true coating guy but we all like gloss)

    I am with you on Essence, pretty amazing products. Once you understand it's not a normal polish and start using it like a permanent glaze, it really shines! If you try to work it like a polish it becomes so hard to remove you will want to kill yourself. Took me 3 cars to switch method, hating every single one of them... but now, I think this is the best thing since sliced bread

    I use a finishing pad or light polishing pad to apply it. I do 2 or 3 quick passes using speed 3 on my Rupes ES21, then wipe off. Works like a charm and makes the paint shine like there is no tomorrow.
