I've just collected it. Save your money.
I spent £525 and to be honest, I'd rather have the money.

Don't get me wrong, it's good.....but it's not the total perfection I was hoping for.

Unless you just want a time saver as you don't have to polish/wax it anymore.

Maybe I'll change my mind when I first wash it.

There's better things to spend £500 on.

I was thinking of having mine done. Snows in Romsey quoted £390

£390 isn't bad

I'll probably know more when I first wash it

Hello, Glen.

Blimey...you've given me `food for thought`!
Sorry you're disappointed with the result.
I'm having the full `nine yards` so costing me much more than your bill.
Love to know how you get on...especially after a wash.
My car is not due for delivery until early July so plenty of time to change my mind. Its metallic black so I was hoping to be able to keep it looking nice with the aid of the Ceramic Coating.
BTW...`Snows in Romsey` is a car dealer so I'm not sure that are able to apply Gtechniq.

Regards
Mike.

I would seriously think twice. Ceramic is basically an always on wax. That's it in a nut shell.

You can buy an awful lot of car cleaning products for that kind of money.

Biggest pain is that whilst it reduces swirl marks, it doesn't completely prevent them. The gloss black plastic parts (sides and rear spoiler) still suffer heavily. You can't use decent polish to remove them either as with most ceramics it will take it off.


If you spent £150 on a pure water system, washed with the two bucket method and used a wax designed during the rinsing stage you'd get 90% of the result for a lot less money.

Depends how good you want your car to look, but even with ceramic you need to do some work afterwards to keep it looking that way.

I'm still in two minds about it all.

This is the rear spoiler, click it to zoom in

Sounds like that £390 is just for rubbing on some cheap ceramic liquid. If you are dead set on having ceramic, you want to find a detailer who will prep the car first. This includes a proper pure wash, clay, machine polish, ipa and then ceramic.

Hell, it might even be a polish with ceramic in.....you can do that yourself!

also, don't think new cars have perfect paint. They don't.

I agree with what glen8 says, I had the option of having a ceramic coating or a new car detail which includes 6-12 months paint protection.

My detailer said that most people who opted for the ceramic coating he never saw again, in my case due to mobility problems I need the car to undergo a monthly Mini Valet so opted for the new car detail then visit every month for the Mini Valet.

The added advantage to me is that my car paintwork is checked monthly and if any chips etc are found they advise me and on my next visit I leave my Chipex Kit with them and they correct them.

Every so often I ask them to wax the car with a high quality carnauba wax which really shows off the paintwork.

Two of our neighbours shelled out ££££s on ceramic coating for their new cars two and four years ago. Their cars' paintworks are not bird dropping-proof and the shine is certainly no better than our now sold 2014 Leon which I Bilt Hamber waxed twice a year.
Two coats of BH Finis Wax (wheels included) after Korossol cleaning on our new Allure and a cracking finish. It will now be topped up with BH Double Speed Wax when needs be and Astonish Spray N Shine (99p) for in-between washes.
I wonder if it this ceramic coating business is all a case of the Emperoror's New Suit Of Clothes syndrome?
p.s. I actually enjoying detailing our cars and have no connection with Bilt Hamber!
