Unfortunately it rained overnight, so not quite as pristine as it was when I got it back from the detailer last night.
GTechniq is great!

Very nice! You could have a shave in front of it. Which package/packages did you go for? How much did it cost? Do you think it's worth having this done if the car is silver?

GTechniq Signature All Surface Protection - £975 carried out by S L Restoration of Crawley. Two solid days work!

Full vehicle decontamination & preparation, single stage machine polish.
Paintwork protected with Crystal Serum topped with EXO. Specialist top coat applied to high impact areas.
Wheels protected inside & out, along with brake callipers & tailpipes.
All glass protected.
Interior fabric & leather protected.

It's the first time I've used GTechniq and I am delighted with the results. I don't think the colour matters; the shine, ease of cleaning, chip protection etc is what makes doing it worthwhile in my opinion.

Just screenshot all that info for future reference mondeoman. How long will the paint protection last on your car where the extra paint protection is and where it's just the standard protection?

In the end, they used the extra protection over all the car. GTechniq offer a 7 year guarantee, although of course a certain amount of maintenance is required. I'm waiting on the paperwork etc to come direct from GTechniq so will know more then.

From the GTechniq website:

Crystal Serum: ceramic composite technology
Why Gtechniq Crystal Serum?
Crystal Serum is the market-leading ceramic composite coating - the best paint protection available.
Because of the strong chemical bond the coating forms with a car's paintwork, Crystal Serum can only be applied by a trained detailing professional in the Gtechniq accredited detailer network.
Should Crystal Serum be applied incorrectly a car will need flat sanding to remove the coating.
What does it do?
Crystal Serum is an unbeaten paint protection product. It provides ceramic protection with previously unachievable levels of gloss, durability, scratch and chemical resistance.
The composite structure offers ultimate safeguard, plus the same slick finish and candy-like gloss as the very best carnauba waxes.
With a 9h top and softer 7h base layer (based on the pencil hardness test), Serum offers improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. It forms a thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss.
When your car is cleaned, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss, as Crystal Serum is resistant to chemicals from pH2 to pH13. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easy to remove and will not harm a car's clear coat.
As well as chemicals, it is unaffected by extreme heat changes, even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.
For the definitive hydrophobic finish it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO - this is known as a CS Black treatment.
Where can I get it applied and how much will it cost?
You can get Crystal Serum applied to your car up and down the UK and internationally. Prices start from £200 - this price does not include any detailing work carried out prior to the application.

What do they use on the black panels around the side windows? These get swirl marks on them so easily, it really bugs me when I see them in the sun.
Whatever it is, it must be good as there are no swirls, and my Evoque had them from day one!
