I've taken the plunge. My F-pace arrived on Friday and dropped it off today to the detailers with pick up on Thursday. My detailer ( uses a new ceramic coating called Kenolon Ceramic Shield that is new to UK market. Really looking forward to seeing it. Will post pictures when I pick it up (as long as it's dry).

A point to note regarding these coatings...

While they are excellent and do work, based on my 6 months experience so far, however.....

Some will remember I had my rear valance 'colour coded' earlier this year.... A botch job which was apparently sorted by dealer three weeks ago, but although I got it back 're-finished' 10 days ago I noticed the paint is coming off yet again yesterday.... Add to that the 'tiger stripes' made by crude machine polishing all over the whole bumper, which now encroach onto the rear wings I really am one p*&&ed off bunny....

The re-painted area looks visibly different to the coated areas which is due to the deep shine the coating adds to the paint finish, so...

I contacted the detailer (prior to finding the paint starting to peel again...) to book in to have the coating re-applied to bumper only....

Cost to do whole car £720 ish (inc wheels)........ Cost to do bumper £450 - they charge a day rate.
