Full paint correction and ceramic coating wasn't cheap because he spent along time on it. I had him do a couple of extra coats of ceramic pro. Was around $1,400

Looks good.

On my previous BMW, which was Alpine White, i used about 15 hours to do paint correction and apply wax.
5 years later, when I sold it, the car still looked great, and all I did was a quick (1h) once-over once a year with a machine and applied wax twice a year.

My current M5 is Imola Red, about 2 years ago it was coated by a previous owner, it's been in my hands for 5 months now.
Not happy with the look, some small scratches, a few buff marks and general lack of shine, I plan to remove the coating and go back to regular wax in spring.
Probably looking at a 15 hour job.
Not sure what Coating was used, but looks like most of these coatings are expected to last 16-20 months, meaning mine is at the end of its life.
