Those 5 year claims you hear are ridiculous. No polymer sealant will last that long. The only sealant I've seen truly lasts for years are the resin coatings like opti-coat, but are a bitch to apply and really expensive, so the 500 dollar charge for application is truly worthwhile. Glad to hear you aren't pushing for customers to go that long without reapplication.

Big fan of the water based dressings. Will never go back. I generally prefer a more semi-gloss look using the water based so after an applications and spreading, I go over it with a dry sponge. Some tires really like to hold onto the dressing too and even water based can fling if too heavy.

Do you use the water based for engine dressing too?
