I am about 1 month away from taking delivery (3.0d S Ultimate Black) and am trying to decide what type of detailing to go for.
A local firm does Carnauba Wax but as this is all new to me i wanted to know how that compares to Ceramic Coating. Also keen for suggestion regarding other protection, as well as rough costs.

Any suggestions and information would be welcome!

You should ask catwoman what she uses. I think it's an initial layer of 'witchcraft', followed by a final coat of 'photoshop', and then regular 'good lighting' applied daily.

There's nothing to it . . . just don't forget to only wash your car under the light of a waxing gibbous moon, while dancing naked at midnight, if you want to achieve a finish like my "****'s" . . :lol: :lol: :twisted: :cool:

Carnauba wax lasts 3-6 months and not as tough as ceramic that lasts 5- 7 years but you get what you pay for :D

Ceramic I think. Mine has 5 year guarantee though I'll be happy with 3 years good performance to be honest.
Washed car a few times and it's great

I've always gone for wax, especially after seeing how dealers can 'give' you the likes of Lifeshine etc after you saying no thanks. This time I decided to go for ceramic (Nanolex) applied at a proper detailers. It looked great when I collected but the test was after taking my grandchildren to school past 2 dairy farms after the cows had crossed the road and a farm where the farmer couldn't be bothered to clean the mud off the road. Got home, got out the hosepipe (not the pressure washer) and every single piece of crud just washed away with no need to get the sponges out. So my vote is for ceramic and anyone want a tub of wax?
