Putting a ceramic coat on otherwise is stupid unless the paint is totally swirl free.

In the UK you are looking in the region of 700 for a full correction detail and quality ceramic coat such as Gyeon Duraflex.

Some coatings are guaranteed for 5 years and some for only 1 or 2 years so make sure you get the right one.

I had this one
I've been reading quite a bit about it and looks like many products claim to last for 5 years and some even as permanent, but typically they don't last for more than a year or two. Water beading may continue but the wax effect may not last for many years. As I mentioned on my post, I am getting the paint correction first (2 day job) so hopefully any and all swirl marks will be gone (it's Sapphire Black color). Thanks for sharing the link mate.
