    Ceramic coatings are prone to water spots. I have `heard` of someone once taking the offending sprinkler head off and replaced it with a cap, effectively killing that head without damaging it...

    Carpro has the original CQuartz, which has titanium in it. Scott from DPCdetailing (the same Scott from Luxury Microfiber) has a new line of titanium based coatings. Initial thoughts from people appear to be very positive, and the coatings actually have nice water behavior. The benefit to a titanium based coating is a reduction in water spotting and an increase in surface reflectivity. If I wasn’t a broken college student, I’d actually pick one of his new coatings up. His coating T3, the baby of the paint coating bunch, is $75 for 60ml before tax and shipping. Not a bad deal.

    I assume that before your endeavors to coat your vehicle, you will need to remove the water spots.
    Here are some links to recent threads on removing them:

    i have a bottle of the t9 to try out, I won`t be getting to it real soon though. As we will be moving at the end of August. So probably not untill mid September.
    Making someone else happy, is one of the best feelings.

    Yeah, I have my eyes on T9 or T6+, one day I’ll test one out.

    Re: water spots

    I would use a graphene based detailing spray on top. Much less chance of spotting with graphene. However, spotting from sprinklers is a tough one to avoid. As the minerals in the water settle and get blasted out when they activate. Get some good water spot remover also.
