Gone and booked the Ceramic coating booked

Thanks for everyone’s advice. Ive gone ahead and found a great detailer in the NW of England (Dead Eye Detailing) and tested them as they renewed the leather on my front seats that were too shiny after being polished by the previous drivers read end lol. The seats are now back to new and perfectly matt in finish (no shine) - its booked into be done for a week on 27th May for full correction of the paint then the ceramic treatment. The guys do an amazing job and this was a shot and link to a recent post https://www.facebook.com/23414234706...92&v=i&sfns=mo where i saw my car in the background while they were doing the leather. Will keep you posted but im super excited.

I like the company name “Dead eye” for a detailed.
But great pics.

Finally got it done

Just picked up the car. It's undergone a week of solid compounding, polishing and refining before lashings of Ceramic Coating being applied and infrared cured for complete protection.

A Ghost immobaliser was also fitted.

Deadeye Detailing did a great job - www.deadeyedstailing.co.uk

Have photos to add but there seems to be a glitch in the system so I can’t add - will try again later.

Interesting, the baking with infrared lights is an older process, there are newer ceramic coating products today that don't require this. In 2007 I've purchased a new LS-460 and the ceramic coating was done with the lights back then.

I've purchased the M6 GC recently and the ceramic coating they've applied is a new generation that didn't require the infrared lights. Both yielded excellent results though.

Photos after my Ceramic coating

Just picked the car up and after the paint correction and ceramic coating it looks like a brand new car, even better than when it first left Germany! Off to buy my jet wash Really pleased with the result.

Interesting - maybe my guy was just worried about the awful weather in the UK! - I had to drive it out of the garage into the rain

That's a bummer but hey your car looks incredible, that color really shows the difference ceramic coating provides. My car is white and it doesn't translate well in pictures. In person looks better.

What I like the best (besides the looks) is how easy it is to keep the car looking like that. Just regular car washes, nothing else.

Ceramic at minimum the wheels. You won't regret it. Especially with these cars.

Definitely worth it! I have it on all my vehicles and being able to wash the both within 30 minutes has been a blessing!
