Hey guys, I should be getting a new car next week and wondering about ceramic coating.
Its a white car and buying it (brand new) for $30k.
I have already said no to the dealer but looking at other providers.
I have been quoted for the coating between $1000-$1700 so say $1500.
That's about 5% of the car's bought value. Is it worth it?
I would probably do it if I had $60k or $100k car, or even a $80k high investment yield BMW, but not sure if worth it on a $30k car.
I'm expecting to do about 8000km per year, parked nightly in garage, but will be parked in shopping centre carpark about twice a week for the day and on the street near station twice a week for the day.
My main concern is probably scratches and people hitting my door when opening their doors. Will the ceramic coating be that useful?
(First time I have bought a new car, and I am not a car guy, so this is not my area of expertise).
