      I haven't used that particular cleaner but have tried what I believe is a product that appears to be very similar with great results. My daughter bought a used Chrysler 300c SRT with some nice but really cruddy rims and used this product with great results.

      F11 Top Coat works great. Not perfect with the bugs on the front bumper and grille but one of the best. I'm sold.

      I'm usually so against aftermarket wheels but damn those Velgens are nice, in that black, they look so nice. I hate the 16/17 Painted Grey Pocket wheels. Maybe if the Sport had glass black painted pockets they would work but gray doesn't match anything else on the Sport.

      Anyone ever used F11 Top Coat? People online have been raving about it for how well it looks, how long it lasts (3-6 months even without babying it), and how easy it is to apply (just spray, rub in, and finish buffing with a dry towel). You can apparently use it on almost any surface, and it makes it so that you can essentially just rinse the car off to get it clean (bugs and other things come right off).

      Sounds too good to be true, but I've seen a lot of videos and pictures of people swearing by it. The price tag is pretty high, so it might really be legit. People say what you get lasts for awhile at least as you don't have to use a lot.

      It's a little pricey but I'm sold. I live in the Chicago area and drive for a living. Here's a photo of my ride in MN after several hundred miles and through downpours of rain.

      I just wiped it down with a microfiber cloth and a little F11 and the shine is still there. I have 3 coats of it on.

      By the way, use it on everything. Wheels, window, plastic/rubber parts. It works!

      Did you put it on all at once? The instructions call this a "Professional Application" where you spray it on all over then wait 15-20 minutes and then wipe it down. Then repeat.

      Mine is black too which is what got me so interested in it. Seems like a dream come true. Plus, I like keeping my car clean without having to spend countless hours doing it if I can avoid it!

      This pretty much confirms for me that it'll be worth the investment. Appreciate it!

      A lot of professional retailers will tell you otherwise and rhat there's much better product out there. All I m is is it works for me and I love the ease of use of it.
