Is it worth double the effort for this two stage sealant over the others? For me personally it's a 100% yes. It is easy to apply and you get round the car quickly but the results are for me better than both Guard and Titan (which you would expect). Its a glossy finish but what struck me the most was the clarity it provided in bringing out the flakes and detail in metallic paintwork. As I was after a really glossy finish (and I was experimenting) I did top this with Titan before applying Mannheim to a selenite grey metallic Mercedes. I'm a little torn as to whether I prefer the clarity of the Bavaria alone or the extra gloss from the Titan which I felt diminished the clarity ever so slightly. As such, whether you use it on its own or with another sealant is up to you as its extremely subjective. I was happy with the results on both the panels I did as a test and on some days I prefer the panel without the Titan and other days the one with so I think to a degree, it depends on the ambient lighting. If your only using a single sealant and you want clarity, this is 100% my first choice and I do own and have used Guard and Titan. The photo attached is with Bavaria alone and it looked stunning at this point.
I applied the sealant with the pad provided, to a panel at a time and after a few minutes, I wiped the hazed product off and repeated the procedure with the curing agent. Really happy with the finished result.
Finally got a chance to use Bavaria. It's as easy to use as eating a Lemon Meringue Pie! Water behaviour is awesome and it comes off clean (no oily residue at all - used a swirl light to check). Finish is awesome and safe on trim. As always exemplary service from John again. Can't fault the company or his products. Thanks John. Buy some quick, is all I can say.
