Does PPF block UV? Is PPF self healing?

Paint Protection Film has been very popular with luxury car owners and is increasingly growing in popularity as the technology improves, becomes more affordable, and easier to install. You don't have to own a Lamborghini to get your baby the same kind of clear bra treatment.

Soft99 Brake Dust Cleaner Challenge

Soft99 Brake Dust Cleaner is a product that promises to remove brake dust from wheels. But does it really work? I put this cleaner to the test against the stubborn and excessive brake dust of my Audi S4. My car turns its wheels charcoal gray before it can chew through a tank of E85.

Your wax isn't blocking UV!

Does wax block UV? Today we re-visit my UV testing methods and see if a new approach to testing tells us more about how waxes block UV light. In our new test I pit Chemical Guys Jet Seal against our new testing gear. I utilize a BPI Perfect Vision UV/Photometer III and a Linshang LS162 Transmission Meter to see how much protection our tested wax provides. I then tested all the products from my prior videos. The uv blocking results may shock you!

Ceramic Coating Audi S4 B9

I've picked up a 2018 Audi S4 (B9 chassis) earlier this month. One of the first things I want to do is apply a ceramic coating. In my prior tests Adam's Polishes Graphene Ceramic Coating, the 60 ml liquid vial, was the best performer in virtually all categories. I decided that for my fun new ride I should give it a real world test and see how long it lasts in the wild. Today I'll show you how to clay bar your car, mask it off, polish it, and apply this ceramic coating.

Lithium Trim Cubes: Did I get it all wrong?

In this video I test the three remaining sealed trim cubes and see if I can get a difference in performance. Today I wanted to review a product we already tested. If you saw my last video where I tested several trim products you saw that Lithium Trim Cubes didn't perform very well. They didn't seem to make the panel look much better and they didn't last very long.
