Title: Ceramic coating results :)
Post by: Pete-r36 on 16 July 2021, 20:04
Had the car minor paint correction and IGL ceramic coated, really happy with the results except for seeing some small marks I didn’t know were there haha, they said the car was mint before some just refining the depth.

The metallic fleck in the paint is off the scale and the wheels almost rainbow in the sun.

Cliche I know but pics do it no justice at all.

Indeed!  It looks great, Pete.

Which coating did you get?

Looks great Pete, I've heard good things about the IGL coatings.

Cheers guys, fingers crossed it lasts as expected (3-5 years).

I think it’s called Kenzo, it’s given the paint a warm look while other coatings look cooler.

Chose it because the detailed came recommended.

Just need to remember to get the full 5 year expectancy you need to maintain the coating with a bit of ceramic spray or quick detailer.

Thanks, we went through the regime on collection.

Top ups are possible, and no harsh chemicals or machine polishing as it will strip the coating.

Also having it garage apparently makes a massive difference to the lifespan.
