A lot of people post that they have done a ceramic coating. I assume this protects the bodywork. Does it stop swirl marks? What are the benefits of doing these coatings? Does it impact positively or negatively the colours of the paint? Is it possible to do this in Europe e.g. Belgium? I never came across it apart from in this forum. Are there other coatings apart from ceramic? How much does it cost?Thanks

I had a ceramic coating http://www.ceramic-pro.com/en/shop/product-line/product/9h/ put on my QX80 and RRS. I do not have any swirl marks on either trucks. The tan QX80 has had it for about a year and my grey RRS has had it since December. I get the cheapest car wash and tell the dealer to not wash it since they hand wash with who knows what. The paint has a constant smooth feel regardless of just being washed or if I wipe the dirt off with my hand. You do not get that nails on a chalk board feel either. I honestly forget what I paid since I when I had the QX80 done I had 3 other cars in for a standard detail and when I had my RRS in I had another car or 2 in for details and I have been using this detailer for years. On my last RRS and other cars that they have done I had a product called Sonex (sp?) applied. Cheaper but need to do it at least once a year. The Ceramic Pro is good for 3-7 years depending on which one you get.

It does not protect the body work from rock chips and such. Those still can happen. It does protect the paint from fade and makes the color look deeper and richer. I am certain that ceramic Pro is available in Europe the founder of the company is from the EU. Cost can have a big variance. It is dependent upon the finish product applied. Some have a one year life span up to lifetime protection. Also the level of paint correction that is done adds to the cost factor. The paint correction is key for an outstanding finish. Even a brand new vehicle will need paint correction. If you don't do the paint correction you may as well just put lipstick on a pig.

Thanks, let me know if you are happy with their service. Maybe I will get it done on my silicone silver p400 if it ever comes.
