New 2 door heritage owner. Looking at ceramics coating. Any good?? Worth it(got a quote for $1400)? Just looking for thoughts, opinions, etc.

Also one was proposed me has a 9 year warranty and is transferable if the bronco gets resold. Thoughts??

Thanks.

9 Year warranty on the ceramic coating?! I believe even if it gets applied perfectly it would need to be reapplied after 5 years. I have had 2 mustangs ceramic coated and the main benefit is not having to wax it ever. 1400 also seems a bit steep if its only the ceramic coating and no paint correction. I would also just skip the warranty unless its super super cheap.

My dealer had mine done for me before I took delivery. mine is a 2door also and I'm sure it’s area specific on costs too. If I remember right it was 800 For mine. I’ve watch pricing around here and it’s all over the place. A good one i think is worth every penny of the cost. I haven’t checked into it but if they offer one for the plastic on it I’d do that also.

Realize the life of automotive ceramic coating is 2-5 years. Be sure to start with clay bar to do the proper prep. Totally worth it, but as with anything exposed to the elements it does deteriorate over time.

I had it done to my 4dr badlands sas. It was pricey, but I had ALL of it done, paint, plastic, wheels. They say it’s warranted for 10 years, but it requires annual “maintenance” where the installer details the car and applies another “top coat”. Make sure you ask a lot of questions. Installers are a dime a dozen and the quality of the product they apply is all over the place. I don’t know about the long term yet (obviously) so there is a bit or “hope and prayer” about whether it’s worth it or not. Whichever, I FEEL better about protecting the finish and it does look great.

We asked the dealer about ceramic coating on our 4-door recently and if I remember correctly, they said around $2200.00!
I plan to check around, but was curious if the benefits of it are even worth it...

Ive had my last 3 done and will tell you it's simply amazing. Dirt will not stick to it very well. The paint correction I believe is what seperates the good shops from the bad ones. Mine has a 9 year warranty thru Gtechniq and the detailer goes over it every year. I'm a believer!

I just use Griots 3 in 1 ceramic spray every 2 months on all exterior surfaces. Paint, plastic and glass. I’m not spending 1400. Especially if it involves that yearly recurring revenue clause. Maybe it’s amazing stuff. But mine looks great. Who remembers Liquid Glass in the 80’s?

My Bronco is black and I live on a gravel road....in your opinion, would it be helpful for the road dust?

I think ceramic coating is a rip off. Only last 2 years max
I just spray wax mine frequently
