Another forum I'm on has a member who had it done. He swears by it. I'll be honest, I'm a skeptic. Keep in mind, I did auto detailing about 23 years ago and ceramic sealing wasn't a thing. Back then, you had wax and you had polymer paint sealers that simply was wax on steroids.
I've yet to see a vehicle with it done in person, so I'd have to wait until at least then before I could really say thumbs up or down.
From what I gather from a coworker....it's not a one-and-done type deal.
We were in the parking lot and he noted that I'd also recently bought a black truck like his. I'd commented that black was my favorite color, but took some work to keep it looking good compared to the silver/grey of my last truck.
I asked him what wash & wax he was using on his....it looked pristine.
He said he'd done the ceramic coating.....and that he'd probably have to do it every year.
The costs of such sure would pay for a pile of high quality wash, wax and pressure washer.
I recently got pricing. $1100 for a 2 year coat, $1600 for a three year coat and $2000 for a 5 year coat. All came with full detail inside and out. Clay bared before coat and paint correction. Coating is paint, wheels, lights, etc. If anyone is more interested in specifics, I can post the email. It seems as though it's a very good option for those who want a freshly waxed vehicle all the time. The labor required to wax often could justify the cost. It's not bullet proof. Cleaning still required. As I understand it, you can look at it like a wax job that last 5 years
