Picked it up this morning from having stage 1 & 2 paint correction and ceramic coating on the car, wheels and windows. Also had the windows tinted while there!

Really happy with the way the car came out, now just need to look after it !!

Very nice.
As you say, now the problem is keeping it looking that way. Although it should be a lot easier now with the ceramic coating.

My wife is waiting to pick her black car up sometime today after undergoing the same treatment as yours.

Enjoy.

Looks great 👍

Having had a couple of cars fully paint corrected and ceramic coating applied, I'm a real fan. It makes keeping the car looking good much easier.

For my Obsidian Black E63 all I did was hand wash it every week or so with a lambswool mitt and water fed through a DI vessel (meaning no water marks when I let it drip-dry), and occasionally carefully remove any tar spots with Autosmart Tardis.

Almost two years later it looked just as good as it did when it came out of the detailers - and it was a daily driver covering 13k miles a year that lived outside.

Looks great that fella,

Can agree with the above, its worth investing in a DI vessel for washing and rinsing as ceramic can be prone to water spot etching, esp in the warmer weather.

What coating did you go with??
Depending on budget you may want to consider a topper to help maintain the coating as an LSP

I have purchased CMX ceramic wash and coat plus CMX ceramic spray coating to help keep it protecting longer.

I believe they use 3m products

Wife used to have a black metallic 530 touring, it was an absolute nightmare to clean......until I got it ceramic coated, game changer.
