    my friend is getting a new car, and i told them to take it down my house, and i will detail it... and they told me that they dont have to wax the car for 5 years.

    i have heard of this before, but what exactly is it? Does the coating, or whatever they put on really work? Should you still wax it when you get it?

    thanks

    Dealer BS... if he paid for it he got ripped off. All they do is over charge you for a probably shitty application of a sealant or wax. There is no "miracle 5 year wax/sealant"..... detail as normal.

    If they read the fine print, they have to bring the car back at certain intervals for reapplication to keep the worthless guarantee in place. Honestly, even without waxing at all, most clearcoats at 5 years will look okay if the car is washed regularly. Won't look like one that has been properly polished and waxed for those 5 years, but good enough most people won't notice the car's appearance has degraded over that time.

    Most likely "Perma-Plate" Alot of dealers offer that option for around $500 or so. IMO its a waste of money and you are better off just doing your own detail which will provide better results.

    but for someone that doesnt know that, the dealer will get them and have you waste lots of money on it.
