Looking for some new LSP's and i'd like to order one of these. it seems like Opti Seal and UPGP are very similar products and i'm hoping some people can chime in and tell me which they like better and/or the similarities/differences.

Opti Guard seems to be a longer lasting product but i'm unsure of a few things with it....can you wax over it? should you wax over it? how do you maintain it? Do you really apply it to your own cars and not touch the finish for a year or close to it? I feel like if the product is that good everyone would use it....but it seems to be somewhat few and far between....

UPGP looks a little better upon initial application, after an hour or so, I can't tell a difference other than OS has a somewhat deeper look. I prefer OS because the performance is the same, depth is a little better and it is cheaper.

With Opti-Guard/Coat there really isn't any maintenance other than washing. Puts on a 2 micron thick layer and it holds up quite well. Been on my parents cars for two years now and still looks and beads great. Dave Fermani on Autopia has done a two year torture test (weekly Dawn washes, etc) and he's pretty impressed with the results.
