    Coating overload - which one to use

    I currently have Polishangel Cosmic on my car and my wife's car. Since I coated the cars last in 2015 it is time for a new coating. However, I am suffering overload as to which coating to use. I like Cosmic due to its ease of applicability. The coating will be applied to two metalic cars - one Iridium Silver and a metallic blue silver.

    I typically top the coatings in the summer time. I coat the cars to make sure they are protected in the winter time. I am looking for coatings that last two years or more. I also want something that is easy to apply.

    Below are the following I am considering:

    GTechniq CSL/EXO
    22ple HPC
    Polishangel Cosmic
    CQuartz UK

    Does anyone have any other recommendations?

    The GTechniq EXO & CSL Kit is a great choice.

    McKee's 37 just came out with a new formula for their coating that looks excellent!

    Polishangel came out with Cosmic V2 if you prefer that..I liked polishangel due to how easy it was to use.i have used cosmic v1..GTechniq CSL/EXO v3 is a great combo..I personally dont like coatings due to water spotting issue..i went back to sealant and wax..for winter I use FK1000p and for summer collinite 915 but that just me..coating looks good and easy to maintain but water spotting after rain is bit too much for me..try Fk1000p on silver..it just makes silver pop..

    What product handles water spots the best? And do the mineral deposit removers strip the coating?

    According to AG, Use CarPro Spotless Water Spot Remover to maintain your Cquartz coated vehicle. Even though coatings like Cquartz provide a rock-hard barrier of protection, they can still degrade due to the long-term effects of calcium building up on the surface. Regular application of CarPro Spotless Water Spot Remover will keep your Cquartz coated vehicle looking its best!

    I just got CarPro Spotless and have a coated vehicle with some pretty mineral rich rain sitting on it now. So I have something to test with. Hopefully tomorrow.

    22plc HPC is a nice choice, really easy and forgiving application. Great gloss, excellent self cleaning abilities.

    Have 'heard' that the EXO part of the csl/exo combo can be a little tricky but supposed to be crazy mad hydrophobic behavior.

    Gyeon Mohs is nice for daily driver. Have tried about 10 different coatings in last year, mostly on fleet vehicles that get the snot beat out of them...no real poor ones in the mix but some do stand out for what I'm looking for (which might not be what everyone is looking for). Don't really care about nice beading, prefer sheeting and self-cleaning abilities.

    22ple HPC and Gyeon Mohs were the Top performers for me with respect to those properties.

    In all the cars I did, never really ran into water spotting issues; that's why beading ain't no big deal to me...id rather have the water sheet/roll off the hood.

    Took a bit but I did finally settle on a coating that meets MY needs.

    If ya liked the Cosmic, why change it up? The whole 'what coating' question will drive ya mad!

    Can't speak to V2, but the original applies is nice in that it applies like a sealant. However, it also has the durability of a sealant. In fact, other sealants last much longer than the PA coating I applied. It will of course last longer if you use the spray topper every couple of months, but so will any coating or sealant.

    Dang, I just ordered Optimum Mineral Deposit. I wonder if it's basically the same thing.
