Ceramic Coating

Post by Uginu » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:07 am

Just got my Seat arona this week and was wondering if anyone has ceramic coated their veichle and if it really does what they say it does. Is it a gimmick or is it worth coating your car for easier cleaning? It's not cheap so any comments prior to spending the money would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi
My first Arona a SE had three chips on the bonnet in less than
3 month
So when I changed to a FR I had it ceramic coated at a local firm and so far 15 month later no chips

This might be of use:

I have an early 80s Porsche so my time is spent over various forums and it seems your answer might be above.

Thanks

Yes the dirt comes off better when you wash you can see the water beading
I also had it fine polished before he applied it
Under his lights you could see lots of swirl marks from the dealers wash !
You need to shop around some were over £800 but I got a detailer to do mine for less
