I opti-coated my ats in July. So far so good. I will have to see how well it holds up in the winter. The water beads very easily and so far it seems pretty easy to wash the dirt off. Easy to apply but you have to spend a lot of time prepping the car. Any swirls and imperfections will be sealed in. I spent a good 15-16 hours prepping my car before applying.

I did a coat but not opti I did 22ple vx pro (similar product). I had already prepped my paint before hand. application is not to difficult just takes some timing (with ple you apply wait 3-5 mins and remove - I did small sections and then another coat the next day). Car looks like glass. Water beads off like crazy. I really only have to wash it to maintain the looks.
