Durable, but tricky
When sprayed as directed and let to dry, it does a good job under the hood. Leaves a dark satin sheen behind. However, if you want to carefully coat trim on the exterior of the car, you need to spray this into an applicator to apply. That is where I had trouble. The directions say not to wipe, but how else can you coat trim? When you do wipe it on, it is cloudy and difficult to spread evenly. Then it dries a little streaky. I ended up spraying a little into some small foam paint "brushes" and applying it that way. I prefer other trim protectants over this, but I have to say that this is very durable. It seems to last longer than many other similar products.
ProsDurable, a little goes a long way, dark satin sheen
ConsCan be cloudy when it dries, really works best if you only spray it

I was skeptical as I applied this "spray and let it dry" product, but will admit that it turned out great. Yes you do need to follow the directions and go over with a second coat. Then let that dry for some time, preferably overnight if you can. You'll be very impressed with the results. Mine is also holding up well several months later. The reason I give 4 stars instead of 5, and this is minor, but the foam engine cover on my wife's explorer did not take as well to this product as the hard plastics and metal in the other areas and with my Pontiac. So be aware of this one drawback.
Consdoesn't play well with foam engine covers

Magic in a bottle
This stuff is the best! The product does splotch up when you use it. It says do not wipe but I spread the product around with a clean terry towel and waited until it dried. Turned out perfect! Protection lasts a year!
ProsHardy protection Great price Multiple uses
ConsApplication can be finicky

Easy to use, unless you're a control freak.
Cleaned and dried my engine. Sprayed this product on (lightly) and it looks blotchy. Followed the directions and lightly sprayed again. Still looked blotchy I wanted to wipe it smooth. Instead I shut the hood and waited til morning to look again. It smoothed out and gave the plastic/rubber parts a nice satin sheen. It seems to be working and after two weeks the engine still looks clean. As far as I can tell, it's doing it's job.
ProsEasy to use.
ConsLooks like a mess when wet.

My clients love it
I work in the detailing business, and after carefully clean the engine, I always apply Sonus Motor Kote. It is quite safe, since it can withstand high temperatures, no smoke or smell after the engine gets hot, and gives the engine a nice balane of bright/glossy look. Indeed do not wipe; just spray it, don't worry about the terrible first impression, just let it sit there. I always spray it before the end of my working day, in case the car stays there overnight. Next day, wow, it spreds out quite nice. My clients love it.
