If you don't mind me asking how much did it cost for your ceramic coating? I was at a BMW dealership with my mom today to test drive a few cars and the salesman told me they do ceramic coatings, films and color corrections in their dealership, on older cars also. He says they keep the car in the detail shop for 3 days for it to cure.You won’t be disappointed. I highly recommend paint correction to get rid of any imperfections.
I would like to have a ballpark price so I know if they are overpriced or not. SInce your buddy did the work I am assuming he gave you a special price? If you don't want to share that I understand. Perhaps you can provide his retail price if that's the case?
