Dealers paint sealer

My dealer claims that they put something on the car that would seal it for 5 years. How do you guys feel about this? Meaning it doesn't need to be waxed for that period as well.

Generally they use some type of paint sealant and will have exclusions such as "must be reapplied every 6 months" and so forth.

Usually it comes with some type of warranty which is what you end up paying for.

Wait don't you offer the Dealer Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 Permanent Paint Coating vs their sealant and see who win's in 5 years.

Clay it, polish it, seal it, and wax it yourself. Less expensive and pride in doing it yourself.

Your ride will look badass.
