Optimum products on non-ceramic coated car?

Recommended Posts

Forgive me for asking this question if already answered in previous post.  

I had a 2018 corvette which had opti coat pro+ (looked awesome!). 

Unfortunately I had to return the car due to lemon law (serious engine problems - 3 engines blown in 5 months). 

Yesterday I leased a 2019 corvette and this time I got Simoniz glass coat applied on car and wheels.

My brother-in-law works at dealership and it was free (vehicle is a lease and free is free - although I'm sure it won't look the same).

My question is although I don't have opti coat ceramic coating, can I still use the same products like hyper seal, instant detailer & gloss enhancer, and my favorite opti clean?

Hello, Greetings from India!

Sorry, if my questions sound too trivial and have been answered in some other threads. I have a black car with Modesta ceramic coating.  My queries are:

1. Is Optimum no rinse wash designed for ceramic coated cars? Will it impact efficacy of some of the self healing properties that coating has to offer?

2. I wish to add more gloss to my car. Which one should be more helpful for this purpose - ONR (blue one) or ONRWW (green one)?

3. I have to park my car in scorching sun.  So UV protection is also an important consideration.  Assume ONRWW offers better UV protection.

4. I live in a dust prone area and plan to use rinseless wash twice a week. Which one of these 2 products offer better dust repellance, if any?

Optimum No Rinse will work on all paint (Opti-Coat No Rinse is formulated specifically for ceramic coatings, but may not be available to you) and will not affect any self healing properties.  Optimum No Rinse Wash & Wax has carnauba and would add more gloss.  While ONRWW would offer some UV protection, I would recommend either Spray Wax or Opti-Seal (or Hyper Seal if you can buy it).  I don't know of any wash product that repels dust, so wax or seal would be your best option.
