What has 'look around more' got to do with taking taxi?
You take taxi the driver will tell you he stay in landed so no need pay fare?
Anyway i advise you to cut botak no.2,if not size 1 to be safe

just did ceramic coating weeks ago for my new ride...was skeptical about it, read reviews, and true enough, cleaning is a breeze, i just use water nia. since still relatively new, the glossy factor still there, not sure about years later.

Different ppl different style,some ppl like their car looks nice,nothing wrong.

But if wash and wax every week ,spending 12hrs on grooming the car,I think the guy better get a life.

This is so funny.

But I agree with you.

You be surprised, some limo taxi take good care of the car,regular polishing twice a mth,

Who say I use for taxi?
I using it for my personal car.

FYI, most of the taxi just sent for car wash at $4.

Saloon car is $8-10.

My car is my slave,not the other way round.
Got wash once every 2 mth,cover mouth laugh.
Interior wipe weekly.

I focus on interior more and clean them more often because this is where the driver/owner and the passengers are occupying.

As for the exterior, if I have the time, I will go to car wash once a while.

Totally support ceramic/nano whatever you call it coating. Washing is a breeze! Dont even need to wax polish like mad and create unnecessary swirls.

The waterbeading effect is awesome!

Did mine when car was brand new in March 2013. Effect is still glossy after car wash now in 2015. Stains and dirt comes off quite easily. Its also good as protective layer to reduce scratches. I got the 9H Ceramic Pro.
But there's maintenance each year for less than $100.

It will normally last for 12months with proper washing (no petrol station car wash, no washing with wax shampoo). After that, go back and touch up..

Birdshit super easy to wash off..

Thanks for sharing. Touch up means to go back for re-coating?
Can I also check the chance of contaminants whereby one has to use claybar to remove and clean those invisible sediments from overspray and brake dust, etc? Does ceramic coating fully solve that problem? Thanks

For not so new cars, it will cost more as they need to strip whatever layer of wax or residue before layering the coats. What I found out before I bought my previously new car. Initial price seems expensive but I think its worth. Even regular waxing packages cost only slightly less yearly.

I already have some scratches on my car, can still do?
