Wow! I'm a believer...a lot can be done to correct a damaged finish. It would have never occurred to me that it was possible

The key is to find a competent detailer in your area... or of course, do it yourself.

I am surprise that it has that much damage to the paint already. Do you normally wash it yourself?

Washed it myself, but not the 1st winter (the only winter I drove it) when I bought it. Plus the dealer installed swirls were already there when I bought it too. I will never use a drive though car wash again, except on the wifes car and my Sonata where the Opti-coat 2.0 has been installed (permanant coating).

I've also changed my wash methods and use multiple buckets and have been advised NOT to use wash media from local stores like Target. I guess their microfiber towels etc. are still too abrasive and will scratch. I have ordered a bunch of stuff through my detailer because of this.

Thumbs up Re: Before and after of my professional paint correction (PICS)

Wow! Gorgeous. Don't know whether it's art or science.
That settles it! I'm going to have to visit Rasky. I'm 10 minutes from Shakopee.

He's got my new Optima right now actually. Dropped it off yesterday. Having him apply the Opti-coat 2.0 permanant coating. Than I don't have to baby this car like the Genesis will be. You can run though the auto washes with the coating and it will not mar the finish, and it beads water just like a wax, but it's permanant.

Just to clarify on that one, Scott....you can run it through touch-less washes and the harsh pre-rinse chemicals as well as other strong cleaners and chemicals will have zero effect on the coatings durability. However, auto washes with brushes or mops can and will still instill scratches and swirls, but they will likely be less severe then if you didn't have the coating. Ideally you still want to hand wash the car, but in the MN winters that is not always an option. I run mine through the touch-less and then do an ONR wash at home.

I use Opti-Guard BTW. Same basic stuff as the 2.0, but it has far less solvents then the 2.0 which allows it to cure much faster and it also leaves behind a thicker layer of product, but the end result is still the same.

Thanks for clarifying, and I will pass the info to the wifey Very glad to know ONLY the touch-less washes, although she only uses Kwik Trip which is touchless. This product is truly amazing!

Scott, just out of curiosity, what did the paint correction and detailing cost?

Price varies by region, and typically areas such as Florida you will pay almost double compared to areas in the West or North (exclude Cali).

Mine was way underbid, so I paid $500 and the detailer had a ton of hours into this project. I want to say about 22 hours if I remember correctly.

The price of detail really depends on how much correction you desire. The more correction = the more time and more $.

I would say for most people in my region the spending $500-$600 would surpass their expections.
