    I`m in PA. I stopped at the store and they had just gotten a tote in with a couple bottles.

If this lasts anywhere near 3-4 months that would be great for this weekend detailer.
    Nice to know it darkens slightly. Thanks for the feedback.

    Being a coating, I think it works best when applied to a clean and prepped surface, with no pre-existing wax. You may find the durability compromised and won`t get the best endurance.

    Unless Essence lies underneath of it…?

    I fully assume Essence would be just as good underneath as a clean surface (maybe even glossier and more durable?!?).

    Picked up a bottle of CMX at my local Pepboy`s this morning. Laid it on top of Essence that is a couple years outdated, on a Slate Green BMW that has been getting a two step minor correction/polish. Will post pics when I`m done, I am not sure about longevity, but it is quite glossy.

    Re: New Mothers CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING

    Not bad shine for an over the counter product, Essence does add a bit of gloss to the equation, but that extra 10%:

    CMX was very easy to use, I found that after letting the applicator sit in the open air for a couple of hours it did begin to harden like spent polish in in an uncleaned towel. I applied the *coating-lite* in a cross hatch pattern and let it sit for a few minutes, as it says on the back of the bottle. The product goes on very light and thin, I used less than an ounce on this entire e39.

    Re: New Mothers CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING

    I sprayed a test panel with some CMX, let it sit for about half an hour and sprayed some water on it. It beaded up nice. Pretty good for a not fully cured product. I then sprayed some apple cider vinegar on it and wiped it off. Then I sprayed it with water. The beading ability was reduced but it didn`t strip the product fully. Still, a decent torture test for a not fully cured product.

    New Mothers CMX CERAMIC SPRAY COATING

    I’m very impressed with the self cleaning abilities of this product! After a day of snow, sleet, and road grime, I was pleasantly surprised to see an extremely clean vehicle after a little bit of rain overnight.

    Makes me want to coat the areas that I didn’t do. IE: glass, side steps and rails, bumpers and trim.

    (dunno ? )

    I`m still trying to figure out how to wash the salt brine off the car `touchless~ to this very day without having the need to mechanical wash afterwards.

    I`ve even pulled the car out of the garage on a 36 hr noreaster to let the solids surface pre-soak and following up with my pressure washing rinsing with not much change on the HP rinse
