Anyone out there ever actually used a teflon/PTFE paint protection product such as "Toughguard" or "5 Star"? <P>Supposedly, a one-time application will last 5 years on new paint and up to three years on a used car (more than a year old). <P>If so, does it work any better and stay on longer than a polish/wax treatment?<P>Thanks for your comments.<P>

From everything I've heard and read, I wouldn't spend the bucks. To actually bond to another surface, Teflon has to be heated to some exceptionally high temperatures (I can't remember exactly, but your car would melt).<P>If you're looking for a good polymer sealant, a lot of folks like Klasse, Zaino or a new one called Blackfire. I'm kind of a detailing nut, and I get most of my stuff from <A HREF="http://www.properautocare.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.properautocare.com</A> <P>For a great forum dedicated to detailing, go to <A HREF="http://autopia-carport.com/ForumIndex.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://autopia-carport.com/ForumIndex.htm</A> <P>

Thanks for the tidbit. I am somewhat of a detailing nut myself but I have been living in Japan (Americans drive junkers here) for the last 3 years so I may be behind the power curve a bit.<P>Nonetheless, I look forward to taking delivery of my '02 S80 T6 in Hawaii upon my transfer; just trying to re-familiarize myself with the latest and greatest in car-lovin'<P>
