Some people like the sealants you mention, some think they are a waste of time and money.One thing is for sure, nothing will protect your car as well as regular waxing.
    Everyone has their own opinion on this,i dont remember stating that your car would be the subject of a full deep clean for that sort of money,lets just agree to disagree on this one,you know as well as i do that prices vary from place to place,dependant on products used and length of time spent on any one vehicle and obviously what job is being carried out!

    Sorry mate. don't want to get into a debate about it but in the above quote you stated that a quality paint finish is acheiveable for this sort of money!! We certainly do disagree on this one!
