    Longest lasting AIO?

    About to lease a new Honda passport for my wife. I don't get much time to take care of her car, so I'm thinking about using anAIO, but looking for something that has some lasting protection. It's been a while since I shopped for an AIO, so I thought I'd try and get some real world input and experience. Thanks!

    Re: Longest lasting AIO?

    I know that HD Speed and Meguiar's D151 have short durability. Meguiar's D166 is supposed to be a 6 months sealant. So my money would be on that one. There might be others with longer durability but I don't know the other brands well when it comes to AIO. McKee's 360 is supposed to have one of the best correction ability, but I don't know how durable the sealant in it is.

    Mckees 360, hands down should get you 6+ months for a DD, my dad’s un-garaged SUV still beaded decent at 7 months (albeit spring through fall in Northeast). CarPro Essence I heard can also last 6+ months, but I’ve heard more variances with that one.

    For a new lease, Duragloss 101, or 501 might be worth looking into.

    In your situation, 101 might be better. Good cleaner, super light abrasives, and extremely durable protection.

    Re: Longest lasting AIO?

    Have not seen any information about it but sold on AGO. Britemax Virtue SiO2 High Gloss Primer Polish is a product that leaves a SiO2 protection behind that is also hydrophobic surface. It's a little rare that primer polish for coatings does this and Carpro Essence is one that don't do it and just the protection part. If staying in the family the Britemax Remax is a topper for coatings and also working as a stand alone LSP. Polish with Virtue and top it with Remax after application and every 1-2 months and you have a great performance I think. Another combo is Gyeon Primer Polish and Gyeon CanCoat that you get over a year of longevity from. They are a little more pricier but applyied less.

    Britemax Virtue SiO2 High Gloss Primer Polish

    Britemax Remax SiO2 Hydrophobic Spray Sealant

    If going more on the budget offerings I would listen to those who recommend Duragloss combos. They seems to be a lot for the buck.

    If you're going to go through the process of polishing and want something that lasts, why not just ceramic coat it?

    I would definitely throw Blackfire AIO into the mix. The durability is excellent.

    I've used HD Speed, Meguiars D166, and McKees 360.....360 beats them easily for durability..no contest

    Or after an AIO apply SONAX Polymer Net Shield to the horizontal surfaces.

    Stick a fork in it and call it done.
