I just had my 2017 honda accord touring dark blue exterior detailed by a detailed shop using Glass Plexin. My question is after I got the car out of the shop with the cleaner the shop gave me to clean the car the finish started to loose its glare. It also does not bead when washed. It also is not really smooth to touch although when I put water on it the dirt and stains come off easily and it is very smooth until it dries. Is this normal?

That sounds really disappointing.I don't know this product but I would imagine It should be smooth to the touch and bead when wet if the product has properly adhered to the paint. 

A quick Google reveals that it isn't that good just like many of the other long term finishes.

I have tried a lot of polishes over the years and currently use Chemical Guys Blackllight. That lasts really well (my car does a lot of miles) is easy to apply and buffs off after setting for 20 minutes . I use every 6 to 9 months and when the car is washed I spritz it with another of their products Hybrid V7 which gives it a really smooth shine.

Glare polishes seem to major on providing a high surface tension to paint surfaces, causing sheeting rather than beading. The surface should feel smooth, unless it wasn't prepared properly. How long did the shop have the car for?

I'd suggest going back to the detailer.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
