Any Ghibli owners applied Ceramic Pro -- what is your experience? Recommend or not? Thanks, Scott

Yes! I got a rock chip in the paint on the first day I had it. I had 4 coats of ceramic coat pro applied on Monday. It looks STUNNING!!!!!! Smooth as glass. I also had the Gtechniq applied to the interior. I have the sabbia interior and have had no issues with dye transfers. I cannot recommend putting a coating on ASAP. Many people here have used the opticoat, but I was concerned with the texture. Also, they just changed their warranty, so I guess they are having some issues.

I forgot to add, the 4 coats give the same coverage as a clear bra and I did not want to be able to see "stickers" on my car. The 4 coats cost $1000. I got an estimate of how much it would be to respray front bumper (rock chip) and it was $1,800!!!!!!! I'm heading to the shop today to have them retouch it. And they offered to do it for free.

Thanks

Seems like the Ceramic Pro is the way to go. I've had the car for almost three month and I want to get the coating before I take a somewhat long road trip. Cheers, Scott

Ha ... I got my first chip on the hood driving home from the dealer. Fortunately, being Griogio Mareata it doesn't show that easy. I could hear it hit the hood ... it was at that moment I hit my top speed (recorded by the car) to blast out ahead of the highway traffic.

I DO wish I did something for around the wheel wells with a little more robustness. My 20' tires are sand blasting the paint off the surrounding edges ... getting a pitted look which I only notice when I wash the car.

Gtechniq on interior and exterior is holding out well for me. Haven't needed to towel dry the car for 6 months ... just the air blower takes all the water off.

I have ceramic coat on my blue ghibli. The car stays looking clean and reduces water spots. Sometimes a nice rain storm will make your car look fresh after its gone lol well worth it in my opinion
