What's the difference between ceramic coating vs wrap? When is one preferred over the other?
From what I've read so far:
1. Ceramic Coat keeps your car looking clean (bird poop, and small debris comes off easily), but it is NOT protection against paint chipping from small rocks and such hitting your car. These are generally cheaper (srstinting from Mississsauga does this for $1500 for 4 coats on your entire car with lifetime warranty). It also makes your car look nice and shiny.
does the $1500 include paint correction, wash, etc?
You definitely want to make sure that if you go with XPEL you go to a reputable installer. You can find licensed installers on XPEL's website.
And then you can do mine on the 5th attempt when you've perfected it and recoup some of your costs... Thanks for volunteeringI plan to DIY an Xpel install, will do decontamination and paint correction myself as well if required. Will see how it goes, the way I look at it, I have 3-4 attempts before I reach cost parity to a pro install! I look for forward to the experience.
Anyone suggest a reputable business that can install the 3M wrap on my Model S?
