The Meguires NXT is pretty good stuff, seems to bead for a good while.

My Tundra has the Auto Butler service done on it every six months, it goes through a big machine that strips off and reapplies the sealant. I'm not sure how this differs from Simoniz. For a normal size vehicle I would never consider purchasing a service like this, but for a large truck or SUV it's worth it IMO.

It is the the actual company providing the warranty which you get official paperwork and contracts for. Research it before you blast it.
What dealership do you work for?

I like Zaino and Duragloss, they are pretty similar and the sealant usually last 3-4 months.

I have been applying simoniz on cars since the days of the "teflon technology" simoniz says that it will last 7 years and my expert opinion says that it doesnt. Most of you car buying people that have no knowledge of detailing don't fully understand the product. You are buying a paint warranty. Simoniz is not a sealant. It is a resin. It does break down over time but it does have the ability to last longer than a wax or sealant. I could go more into detail about it but no one would read it because it would be boring. I do not endorse simoniz cuz its an expensive warranty and gives u a false sense of peace. The issue is knowledge-you were not given the full story on the product. Only that it lasts 7 years and it does not.
