Fresh pictures IGL Quartz Ceramic Coating

Had IGL Quartz Ceramic Coating done yesterday on my BSM M340. Can definitely see an improved shine and visual slickness. It rained downpour immediately after picking the vehicle up and during the entire 20 minute drive home. Water beaded off and can hardly tell.

Looks great. Ceramic coating really brings the deep shine to darker colors and makes the car cleaner for much longer (which is not easy with a black car).

I had my Alpine White coated with Gyeon D2 Duraflex just a week after delivery. So far I'm very happy with the results.

my car is in for SunTek PPF. I am only doing the front clip.

Should I do ceramic coating on the entire car after I get this PPF done?

Do you have Ceramic coating put over the PPF & all parts including Gloss Black items and Carbon Fiber parts like spoiler and diffuser?

Curious the cost to ceramic coat the entire car?

What happens with ceramic in say 10-15 years once you take it off? How does the paint look underneath? I have a hard time believing the ceramic staying on the paint for that long will have no effect?

It's not on the paint it's actually on top of the clear coat but the way I did mine was paint protection film over the entire car then the ceramic over that so it'll wear down before touching the paint ... essentially ceramic protects the clear coat ( a clear coat for your clear coat ) . Also you can't take off ceramic like film ... you buff it out clay bar or chem are are always ways to take it off but could damage the clear coat or paint if it's harsh enough

Yes basically the ceramic is a clear coat for your clear coat and if it's over ppf it's the clear coat for the ppf ... it's is over everything ... the ppf installer worked with the accessory installer basically I took delivery on a thurs had the parts already shipped to my house that week .. dropped it off mon to get tinted the rest of the parts arrived tues parts installed and the weds went back for the ppf . the ceramic was applied the following mon cured and was ready by eod weds. Would have been done by the weekend but there was an small issue with the side skirts. Basically went straight from the dealership to the install and ppf place.
