Midge’s Ver­dict

Fast Car - - Tested -

I can’t help think­ing that what Auto Fi­nesse have done here is rather clever. Ce­ramic coat­ings are bril­liant, there’s no doubt about that, they of­fer the best sur­face pro­tec­tion you’re ever go­ing to get. Gen­er­ally speak­ing though, the way in which most prod­ucts have to be ap­plied im­me­di­ately makes them the re­serve of pro­fes­sion­als and the more hard­core de­tail­ing buffs. Even for ex­pe­ri­enced de­tail­ers, us­ing a ce­ramic coat­ing can be a daunt­ing task.

What they’ve done with Caram­ics how­ever, is re­ally thought about mak­ing the process ac­ces­si­ble to all. The un­usual thing about this prod­uct is that it’s de­signed for ev­ery­one from the hard­core de­tail­ing nut, right through to the be­gin­ners. In fact, it’s ar­guably even bet­ter for those who don’t par­tic­u­larly get all ex­cited about clean­ing their car at all, the in­struc­tions and ap­pli­ca­tion meth­ods make it dead sim­ple and, once you’re done, you get all hard­core pro­tec­tion you’ll ever need for a whole year.

Ease of ap­pli­ca­tion aside, the Com­plete Pro­tec­tion Kit we’ve got here is se­ri­ously good value, but I also love the way each smaller kit can be bought on its own, a way of mak­ing the sys­tem even more ap­peal­ing. Take my TT for ex­am­ple, the vinyl wrap means I won’t re­ally need the paint pro­tec­tion, so I’d be more in­clined to go for the wheel, glass and in­te­rior sys­tems. Hav­ing to pay ex­tra for a paint kit may have put me off. Some might pre­fer to just coat their wheels or in­te­rior, oth­ers might only be in­ter­ested in their paint, so hav­ing the whole range avail­able sep­a­rately gives a good de­gree of ver­sa­til­ity.

Most of all though, it’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to mess these up. The only way they could have made Caram­ics any eas­ier to use is if they popped around your house and whacked it on them­selves. An epic prod­uct, and just in time for win­ter too. In a nut­shell: Eas­ier than I thought, pro­fes­sional re­sults, ideal for this time of year.
