Electronic rust proofing module

I live in Ottawa where they use a lot of salt in the winter so rust corrosion is a major problem here. I just bought a 2004 325XI which happens to be a US car. It looks amazingly clean compared to my two year old Camry.

I have seen ads for the CounterAct Electronic Rust Protection System which uses elctron theory to inhibit rust. I don't know any one who has used it since we normally use anti-rust coating or oil spraying here in the north. I would like to keep the clean unsprayed look of my 325XI. I would like to hear from people who may have used this product.

Thanks,

Rick

I live in Newmarket. I drive a 02-325XI. I was considering the option you're looking as well. Two things chnaged my opinion.

1st - Most likely it affects your ground (negative pole) which can affect the performance of the computer. There's a number of stories you can find online that how important is proper grounding.

2nd - The coating shop that we (all family) go to, has removed a number of these devices from high end cars since they were not performing properly and rust was actually happening.

Anyone has heard other stories similar or otherwise please share them here.

Cheers ...

That's what my rust-proofing shop owner told me, I just assumed he had an ulterior motive in dissing these gadgets. I will try to do more research on this topic.

Electronic Rust Proofing Module

If you in Canada, I would recommend staying away from Final Coat CM2000 module; it has nothing proved that this "electronic" solution works. It's beyond physics laws and common sense. The same probably about other models.
If the car is brand new, it goes through a treatment that effectively makes it rust proof for about 7-10 years. The rust proofing offered by various dealers and companies is largely a gimmick, designed to make a quick buck, sorta like the extended warranty you can by at most electronics shops.

Look at my own investigation in this article
