So far I've maintained well for one year, without scratchs and dents and water marks. When it deteriorate maybe on the 3 year , then polish again to renew.

For water marks, dont think can be save by polishing again after few years down the road.

Cant be your car always in tip-top condition which dont have fine scratches, chips and even water marks esp if your car is drive on the road and parked at open area. Unless you everyday wash and wax the car. Lol.

For weekend car is possible.My car park got one weekend elantra plate SK series also dent and chip free.Paint work also very good even after more than a year.

But funny right? Buy car but cannot drive, only park at home to keep it shiny. Its like getting married but no sex involve. Dents n scratches are part n parcel of owning/oweing a car.

Maybe they don't need to drive to work on weekday so they choose to buy weekend car just for family outing or whatever during weekend.

So weekday mostly park at multi-storey car park so is able to maintain.

And also depends on where you drive.

As for me,chipped paint work normally happen in weekday working hour cause works in tuas.So many truck,lorry and pickup moving around.

If work in city area,chances of chipped paintwork is lower.

The current coe rebate for opc also not worth it.... 17k only. If they give 40k....maybe i will also switch over Edited by Ceribro101

Ya there is no escaping chipped paint if you drive. Even if you say you managed to avoid every single stone on the road, some truck driving past next to you gives no shit about your paintwork and will happily throw stones up at your car. I got my sideskirt chipped and I'll never know if it was a stone thrown up from my own front wheel or somebody next to me

Even can eacape chips, there is no way to avoid door dent. Moreover washing car will sometimes result in very very fine scratches in the paintwork. I strongly doubt any cars in Spore can have perfect paintwork.

OPC is slowly dying out. Maybe its time to scape it.

My Car is 9mth 9k mileage, with some-say-too-useless-expensive( [:p])  PPS done since week 1.

 

Already got 1 dent, 3 chip-offs. 2 ugly 2cm scratches, and watermarks  all over the shop. (and I wash every week) 

 

Oh well. Part and parcel of parking in hot sun and rain since no sheltered car park.

Give me $10k or $17k no diff. It's the lifestyle requirement.

PPS is a protective coat over car paintwork and car still subject to other factors practically. Wonder worthwhile to apply PPS ....... 10 years EOL most will scrap.

Traditional wax or sealant package still better than Pps.

Traditional wax will wear off quickly over washes and rain. Ideally wax every 6months. Pps act as a permanent wax solution which won't wear out so quickly. If you do up your sums, a PPS with 3-5 years warranty cost the same as traditional wax if wax every 6 months

OPC was good when the COE was about 20k+.

 

back then, with OPC, you could buy a Toyota for about 30-40k..
