Love using gtechniq products ,been using c2v2 and c1.5v2 spray on sealants and will be getting c2v3 and exov2 when its out at the end of the month.I,ve tried most other brands ,waxes etc but gtechniq works well for me ,for the ease of application and works best for my ibis rs3 :) when its dirty simply pressure wash,then 2bm, with ph neutral shampoo,then pressure wash, job done ,should easy see 6months+ protection on one application....

I'll be going this route as well as my local detailer has done a Suzuka TT-RS with this and the results are good. Paint correction first and then application. Just need to work out the best product to apply over Venturshield and how to get it looking its best before application which I am hoping will be the same.

I've been using C2 for over two years ... and don't use anything else now :yes:

I use it as a Quick Detailing Spray ... it is also a fantastic sealant in it's own right but you can dilute it down with water at 1:20 to use as a QD spray which tops up the sealant too. Works great on paint, glass, black trim, alloys .. everything really. Very easy to apply and buff off with no smearing.

It's particularly good for white too over the long term, due to it's UV blocking and non-yellowing properties.

I've just received a sample of the new Version 3 ... will be trying it out soon.

Gtechniq do produce some great stuff and some is used by Formula 1 teams, in particular Force India ... so you're in good company

This was Mrs G's 3 year old white Megane after two years of C2 top ups on paint, glass, alloys and all black trim ... the car was never garaged, and that's Renault paint !

As you can tell ... I'm a bit of a Gtechniq fan !! :anbet:

I too have been looking into purchasing this stuff, When applying it just about every thread in detailing world has stated that you can apply it to just about anything ?

So here i my question when applying it to trim and glass do you apply and buff off in the same way ? With the trims in particular do you apply a trim touch up first and then the C2V3 ?

Hi yes you can apply it to everything as most sealants ,and yes you would need to apply c4 first to bring out the colour if its faded if its not just add c1,exov2 or c2v3 ...i,m trying out wolfs hard body at the moment as i bought it ages ago and wanted to try it ,and sv shield wax just to see what lasts the best ,sealants seen to keep the beading very tight ,which i like best ...

In case you missed it in the other post, this is the effect of G1 on the windscreen.
Far from what Robbie said, i found that even doing 70+ i still didn't need the wipers on, and it was p*ssing down and lots of spray:-

So this stuff will work on plastics and rubber seals? Nothing more annoying when you wash your car and the rubber seals look pants!

I have some autoglym gel for that but its a complete PITA to apply!

Tbh i,ve move away from ag there are some fantastic products out there ,try Auto Finesse Revive 'Trim Dressing', or C4 Permanent Trim Restorer,with c2v3 gtechniq to seal it all in ,just spray the c2v3 wipe on and buff off....

Never heard of this g spot stuff, but it sounds like its it might be worth trying?

I'm a rain-x man on the windows and then I use chemical guys sealant and waxes... works pretty well tbh...

after having seen how good the carriers come up after a polish, that's my aim when things dry a bit...

Just bought armour all shield which I've only tried on the bonnet and it works rather well... will do the whole car soon and post results... take it this gtechniq is pricey but good...?

Just ordered EXOv2 and also received C2v3 last week. Hope to get them on the cars in the next couple of weeks. Really is easy maintenance once you've done it with these type of products. :yes:

That's the norm, I did the same a few years ago. Ended up buying then subsequently selling a whole load of stuff on there. Now, I just look for easy maintenance products with minimal effort as I don't have the time to spend 4-5 hours cleaning the car - hence GTech fits my needs perfectly.

Once a year I'll give the car a going over with my old skool Porter Cable (110v US version:rock:) but even then, I now have a range of pads (Megs) and polishes (Menz) that I'm happy with and have managed to avoid following the trend and buying up the latest shaped foam pads etc...........that said, I think I will get the Megs MF pads system soon :laugh:

See that is going to be my only potential complaint about G-Techniq, they are going the same way as Chemcial Guys etc in having a myriad of products that all seem to do more or less the same whereas when they started out they had 5 or 6 products each doing a different thng and you knew where you were. If they have improved the formulation then fine, just keep the original name and say improved formula. It's not like if you look at C2v3 you are going to think, actually I don't want the best version, I'll go with the inferior v1?

Must also say have my doubts about C5 on the matt satin finish rotors and on diamond polished surfaces as it doesn't seem to adhere well and last as long. I had to take my DAS6-Pro to the wheels after AG custom wheel cleaner, Iron-x, clay and HD cleanse before I got the results I normally get on standard powder coated wheels. Two coats of C5 this time, we'll see how it lasts.

Thats great news ,when i first tried c2v2 the feel of the car was like silk ;)
Guys, having overheard comments last week in Ruthin I too purchased 500ml of C2V3, arrived Saturday. I mixed 50ml 1:1 with clean water then sprayed and polished both the RS3 and TT bodies and glass; and wow! What an amazingly easy process to get a stunning finish. Spray on, spread/rub-in with one micro fibre cloth and polish off with a second/third micro fibre cloth. Glass and all! Finish is amazing; and I do have lots of experience polishing cars. My recommendation? Get some!

OK, now the BAD news. I actually used the same mix/process (spray/wipe/polish) to clean my downstairs windows and PVC frames! Sorry! Sorry, guys, but there it is… And again, an amazingly good, quick, and smear free finish.

Well done to GTECHNIQ, C2V3 really does provide an easily achievable stunning finish.
