LOL I did ask about the door handles and was quoted over a grand to colour match which means she either got the wrong end of the stick when I described or I need a huge dollop of Vaseline Big Cry Big Cry Big Cry

I've just been reading up on the Gyeon products and there ceramic coating seems to get very good ratings and it says it lasts min of 2 years if correct washing and care process is followed.

Anyone tried this or had it applied to a vehicle?

Completely agree.
I had this on a pair of new wheels and whilst it did nothing to stop them getting dirty,
it required more effort to turn on the hose than clean the wheels. Very Happy

It doesn't keep them that clean on the inside but makes them easier to wash with just shampoo & a wheel mitt.

Gyeon products are superb - done the wheels with Q2 rim and once the weather is better the car will be having some MOHS ceramic coating Thumbs Up

I coated a set of wheels with C5 nearly 3 years ago & they’re still a breeze to wash.

Firstly, do not let the main dealer touch the car. When I bought my Sport new I told them to leave the car as it came off the transporter. I arranged for my detailer to pick up the car, detail it & return to the dealer before I even saw it. When it returned, the dealer phoned me to say that it was the best they had ever seen & everyone at the dealership had said the same.
I had the full Gtechniq works done, body Crystal Serum, Leather protection, full interior, Glass & wheels with wheels removed.
Cant remember price as it was 3 years ago, but relative to the vehicle cost, it was a drop in the ocean. It took 3 days.The car is so easy to wash, snowfoam, 2 bucket method, microfibre to dry. Water just runs off. I use a Meguirs quick detailer which takes no more than 15mins for the whole car. The glass has never had to be redone, above 40mph you dont need the wipers, below that an occasional single wipe does, cant remember the last time I filled the screenwash. I have done the leather myself acouple of times, still as new. Wheels need done occasionally, but are so easy to clean

Andy, I have looked at them quite a few times but somehow have never bought one Big Cry I don't know why cos I am pretty OCD when it comes to cleaning my cars, something I actually enjoy (sado)I know Embarassed I don't think the Sport has even climbed a kerb never mind a ploughed field. You have got me thinking again. Anyone you can recommend

In full agreement here. I had Gtechniq done last year on another car - the Crystal Black/Exo with single stage polish - and it really was worth the c£700-800 in total on a medium sized car. I am now scheduling it in for our soon-to-receive AutoBio. Reep Midlands did the work and were a splendid team to work with.

As an aside, I also asked for the paint-thickness measurements from the work done which were pleasantly surprising (for an Italian car!) and which gave comfort about any future treatment needs (hopefully none will be needed!). Maserati MC Stradale 2016

Glad I’ve just read this as, been a owner of a dark blue Metalic S4 it’s doing my head in keeping it clean, and sufffering from eater drip marks after spending ages drying it and blowing out water

Back from Reep Midlands and very happy with the result - really makes the colour stand out and the paintwork is - as expected - very easily maintained and brought back to its original glass-like finish.
