I have been using the CQuartz. Not the new CQuartz finest, but the regular one. I have three layers on my car.

The gloss and beading is fantastic. However it does not protect the car from marring. I will probably have to redo the hood after a year because of marring (I.e. a few light swirls from washing). Te rest f the car s pretty much mint though. I was a strong Swissvax advocate before, but this stuff is much better,

I have my eye on 2 coating products for my M5: either CQuartz Finest, or Wolf's Chemicals Hard Body. There is a forum member who just started using Hard Body on his 5GT and it seems to provide real scratch protection in addition to very good water repellency.
