Just had a lengthy discussion with my detailer about this. He stated pretty much the same as everyone on this site said, basically, great stuff. We also discussed the merits of the new ceramic coatings. You first ensure your paint is touched up, all scratches and imperfections buffed out, apply the ceramic and vinyl coatings. He stressed the importance of making sure the paint was properly prepped, ie. imperfections and scratches fixed as the ceramic creates a high gloss finish and any imperfections will be visible. Total cost for scratch removal, paint touch-up, vinyl and ceramic for my R is about $2400. My paint is in very good shape with very minimal scratches and chips. More in--depth prepping would be more $$$$$. My detailer has done this process for several high-end vehicles as well as his own toys, cycle helmit and anything else that will stand still long enough for him to apply it, and he swears by it. I know, pretty pricey, but then you hope to get what you pay for.
