Will be really good to see the before and after pictures especially on a colour like white that hides a lot more of the paint marks then colours like black does.

Agreed, except Paul's car is DSB, not white . . . it's just covered in white snow foam in these pics, still recognisable tho' ;)

Paul, do you mind me asking what type of cost this is vs the Jag equivalent, as I have mine coming in a few weeks and would like to have a proper Perfect Polish cost to work with as I enter the Jag dealer lair....if what he says above, 9/10 times they are cheaper happy days. please private message me if you prefer

Call Scott Evans at Perfect Polish on 07807 055377. He's excellent, even came to my handover, will take you through all the options and give an honest appraisal of what will work for you then quote.

Be aware the process takes days not hours to do properly and based on my experience of dealers, this is not their specialism and best avoided.

Training or no training it's down to experience and a massive attention to detail. Don't rush things, do that and you might end up regretting, as I have last-minute deciding to order splash guards without any dealer warning they drill holes in my paintwork to fit and don't fit well anyhow!

That's the sort of thing I've been looking at and talking about though eventually I haven't gone the whole hog
Look how many swirls and imperfections on a brand new car.
The 2-3 day detail with ceramic protection looks the nuts but it's not cheap and of course you have to have a detailer close enough and to,lose the car for a few days,

I've just gone with the one day ceramic coat option and I hope it's prepared enough and coated properly in that time for the money. Won't expect it to be the same as the £1500 job of course :)

I know I was more thinking about the process then the car with the snow foam all over it, perhaps I should have explained a little more in details, sorry for the confusion.

Very good. Like I've said before I expect people to charge a Decemt amount if you spend a whole day. If you spend two,days then it should cost mainly just on manpower. If you were self employed (or are) how much would you charge for yourself or one of your guys - that's how I look at it.
Yes £1500 was pushing it for me but I can see the value or how it costs that much as its a lot of work especially when they are removing wheels and all that stuff which I'm not bothered about.

I'm paying more than that £375 for a one day ceramic coat and not,with either of the above as its also finding somewhere convenient enough

That perfect polish guy your using is very reasonably priced. Just checked his website. If I lived near Shrewsbury I'd get the whole car sorted there including wheels off

After a week on the roads it's going to be filthy, can you then just wash it yourself as normal and it goes back to looking as good?

How long does this protect the car from swirls for?
The products applied are manufactured by magic elves so my car will never be dirty again

OK, I'll find out about all that tomorrow on collection but my understanding I should not need to polish it just water and dry down.
