We get many enquiries every day with customers asking us how Ceramic Pro performs against the dealership paint protection they have been offered at an exorbitant price. The only real advice we can give is research the brand and reviews on the product they are trying to sell you, we can’t comment on their products specifically as we don’t use them. However, what we can say is some of these paint protection products sold by dealerships are extremely overpriced, and relabeled and marketed towards dealerships only.
They are also not “endorsed” by the manufacturer, one dealership will sell a different paint protection brand to the next dealership even though it’s the same car brand. There are lot of sales tactics used to meet quotas when it comes to selling aftermarket accessories within dealerships, this is where they make their profit!
Yes it may be easier to package your aftermarket accessories such as paint protection and [...]

This stunning Ferrari 458 was just purchased second hand and was in desperate need of a detail and paint correction to restore and enhance the paint work back to its former glory!
The previous owner hadn’t taken much care of the paint work with some heavy swirl marks and scratches all over the vehicle, more noticeably on the black roof which was really letting this stunning supercar down when looking at it in the sun! The interior was detailed and the paint work received a Stage Two Paint Correction where needed and a Stage One Paint Correction overall, utilizing premium polishes from HD Car Care in the USA to produce a flawless finish. It was then coated with Ceramic Pro Permanent Paint Protection to protect the paint work from damaging environmental fallout, help keep it cleaner for longer and overall give it even more gloss!
This immaculate Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale was in need of a thorough Detail and Paint Correction to restore heavy swirl marks and imperfections in the paint work, overall the vehicle was in exceptional condition however the paint work was really letting it down and needed some serious attention to make this car stand out even more then it already does!
The racing stripes were removed as requested by the customer (to be replaced), and the whole vehicle received a thorough clean and paint decontamination, once this process was complete we were able to assess the paint work to determine what level of correction would be suitable.
A Stage Two Paint Correction was performed, this process involves using an abrasive polish with the correct polishing pad to remove the heavy defects in the paint work, once this stage is complete we then went on to the second stage which consist of a fine finishing polish and [...]
This Audi R8 V10 Spyder is one exceptional Supercar that deserves only the best treatment for its new well-deserved owner!
Unfortunately the paint work was in very average condition with a lot of paint imperfections such as swirl marks and scratches and overall lacking a deep gloss finish like one would expect to see on such a stunning Supercar!
After an extensive 5 hour Stage Two Paint Correction by two highly skilled operators to remove paint imperfections such as swirl marks and scratches a deep gloss was restored, our Stage Two Paint Correction process starts by removing the heavy defects with an abrasive polishing compound and pad combination that we know works well on this type of paint, followed by a fine abrasive finishing polish and pad to restore the deep gloss and remove any minor imperfections left from the prior step. Paint Correction is usually done in a Single Stage, 2 Stage or 3 [...]
