    Default Thoughts on nano/ceramic coatings?

    I'm about to pick up my new 911 and I'm wondering if I should consider these new coatings that detailers are pushing. I like traditional detailing methods of wax/polish. These new solutions seem very permanent. What are your thoughts?

    For a new car, I would consider them. For an older car with a few dings, scratches, etc....like mine....I don't think the benefit is there. Just an opinion. Be sure to get references from any detailer that you might use. A bad job will last a long time with Nano-coatings.

    If you are going to put words in my mouth, at least try to be more articulate.

    If I were you I would highly look into taking your car to a professional detailer and have them apply the coating. Most dealers don't sell high end coatings just a sealant with a big warranty behind it. Id rather see you spend the money and get the best coating possible with a great warranty. For example look up Ceramic Pro. Thats what we use in the shop and its phenomenal!
