I think the point here is that it's the initial work done on the paint correction that is giving the perfect shine and reflection, and you can either protect that with carnauba wax, which is gentle on the paint but must be applied more regularly, or with these ceramic products, which are much harder, last longer, but apparently when they start to fail, you have to take some pretty labor intensive and abrasive measures to remove the failing product and get back to the original paint surface. As ttforcefed noted, any sort of heavy abrasive measures done on single-stage paint is removing the actual pigment layer, which you want to avoid; two-stage paint you are in the clear coat, not great either, but more tenable. Anyone who has applied even a gentle polish to red single-stage paint is aware how much pigment is coming off the car. With clear coat, you don't see it, but it's there. Certainly, for years and years before these ceramic coatings, carefully corrected paint retained that sort of mirror shine with proper washing techniques. And, if you love your car, it's enjoyable to gently spread a nice coat of wax on it by hand and see the results. Ceramic is perhaps more forgiving initially, as it's a harder surface, but apparently there is a price to pay down the road when it starts to break down. To me, it would be more viable on top of the clear film because the paint is safe underneath. I had that done on my former California 30. There's no right or wrong answer, and no need to throw insults or memes around, this ain't Reddit, after all. Shared experiences increase knowledge. Everyone's car looks great, and I'm sure the F40 is equally stunning, wax and all.
