I have to admit, I am a big sucker for detail products, it started with Zaino Brothers around 1998 and went from there. Lately besides CarPro CQuartz UK 3.0, which is on my car, and Adam's Ceramic coating on my wife's car, I have various toppers. I've used CarPro Reset, Adam's Ceramic spray, Beadmaker, Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic Spray.
Has anyone tried this new one by 303 (Gold Eagle brands) Graphene Nano Spray?

I may get it and use it on my mother's car. I kinda like the way it hazes over and you wipe it off like old school waxes. 12 months should easily get me through the winter as a topper over my CQuartz UK 3.0 (you can use it as a base or topper).
Just wanted to see if others out there are up to speed with the next best thing in auto detail products.

Its sold out right now. Well have to wait for people who got some to see how it does. Im interested in how well it does with a water spots more so than how long it last.

My tornado red did not do well with the turtle wax hybrid solutions..bad water spots that etched into the paint. Its doing much better with turtle wax seal and shine.

I’ve seen it on cars though I gotta say, turtle wax hybrid ceramic is glossier, has more warmth and depth. Probably lasts longer too.

Just my opinion.

Yes the turtle wax hybrid solutions was glossier or shinier. I think it attracted more dust. What gets me is yes its supposed to last long get but it caused bad water spots on 2 other cars I used it on..not just my gti.
The 303 graphene claims some resilience to water spots.

When it comes to water spots, yes you will get water spots when water dries on the vehicle, 303 admits this, but according to the 303 Graphene R&D lab manager, David Gutierrez, the water spots won't etch into the coating and are "extremely easy to remove by just wiping them off".
I topped my CQuartz UK 3.0 with Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic spray for the winter, and it is incredibly glossy but it does attract a lot of dust for some reason.

Graphene coatings seem like a promising future to providing superior paint protection. Insofar, i have not been able to try it and have yielded great results with the various ceramic hybrid sealants currently available. However one day when i actually polish this car i'm planning to top it with graphene as a base coat then make ceramic coating the sacrificial/slick layer.

Thanks yes.. I got water spot etching from the 4 coats of the Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic spray. VW and this red GTI is new to me and this is the first car in my lifetime where I got etching into the paint after coating the car. If any of these coatings are so durable I dont understand how rain water just etches into the paint... Im hoping its the TW i used and not the GTI clearcoat/paint. Judging from using it on other cars...I think its the TW product.

I have much less dust with the TW Seal and Shine and it is seems to be keeping the water spots from etching so far.

I look forward to hearing about the 303 graphene if anyone gets it. Could also wait for other manufacturers to come out with a graphene?

I hear you man. With hybrid ceramic I wait 24 hours before taking the car out. And if I get in the garage and the car was water droplets I whip out the leaf blower and get them off. This is truly hybrid ceramic’s worse attribute.

Luckily, every 6 months. I add a coat. Wait 24 hours and add a second coat. As a result if I do get a water spot it wipes off relatively easy. Though it’s still a pain in the ass
