I was wondering why the OP's paint color looked so enhanced, it seems that the guy is a cinematographer. My results were great but nowhere near his, makes sense now.

I used over the clear film I have on the front of my car. I only have 1400 miles on the car so I didn’t really need any prep (not a DD). Sprayed on wiped off.

You are correct.

Here is a video of the first wash after applying. The paint is incredibly slick and hydrophobic.

I have noticed with using Adams paint sealant and h20 guard and gloss I tend to get a lot of water spots after it rains from the small water pooling where the water cannot run off the car. Does the ceramic coating help that or will I most likely see the same results?

You will still see very light water spots in certain areas. Especially on the flat spots, such as the trunk lid and tops of the quarters. Good thing is they wash right off!

Also this question maybe be more for Adams but the one step polish adams sells I believe has SiO2. So I assume if someone uses that before the coating that will have to be removed. May just used their standard polish prior to coating instead.

No matter what polish you use before applying CS you want to use our Coating Prep first to clean your paint.
