As the answer was yes to the first option, he convinced me that good and regular sealant/wax application will provide similar if not better results from shine perspective, coating might be a bit easier to wax, but that’s really it. Considering the cost involved, I get lots of sealant and wax for the price of coating treatment, and since I’m happy to make the time investment, easy decision. But the paint correction is an exercise worth doing, this is relevant, coating or not. And then consider how to maintain the paint to cause minimal defects/swirls. One last thing: get clear films on side skirts. Our cars have a tendency of spraying small road debris to the skirts, the film protects (coating won’t help here).
Thank you for the valuable insight and alternative view point to consider. You make quite a compelling argument against having it done. And the film sounds a great idea - thanks.
