Does any one have any thoughts or opinions on Permagard. It is a reactive polymer treatment that can be applied to both new and used cars, replacing traditional wax,teflon or silicone based products. It has been developed to protect paintwork against oxidisation,discolouring,damage from bird droppings and other pollutants while providing a perfect finish that is easy to maintain.
When your car has been treated all you need to do is wash it with a ph neutral shampoo or clean water to maintain the deep gloss finish. There is no need to cut polish or wax again. :eek:

Magic Paint

Stefan Langenfeld, a nanotechnology specialist at Volkswagen says the automaker is working on paints that are too slippery to allow dirt to stick to their surface. Further down the pipeline is a "self healing" paint that could repair its own scratches. Even farther down the line is a paint that can change its color. Say you buy a blue car but feel like driving a red one, this paint could accomplish that chameleon switch. Langenfeld says VW is pursuing nanotechnology because it offers improvements in safety, fuel consumption and customer convenience.

Volkswagen is also exploring nanotechnology to develop auto glass which can be switched on to filter out heat and eliminate the "oven-effect" when a car is parked in the summer sun. Under the hood, the automaker is also developing nano materials that will cut down on friction in engine parts cutting oil use and extending the life of the engine. VW's on the road already carry nanotech in anti-reflective coatings on the dashboard and instrument panel of the vehicles to reduce glare. The automaker's rear view mirrors use nanotech materials to automatically darken when closing vehicles' headlights hit the mirrors.
Sounds like a lot of (to use a computing term) vapour ware to me. No substance whatsoever.

Looking at some of the oil posts here whats the point of a long life oil if people are still ging to change it as often as they used to do in the olden days.
