    I hesitated to spend the money for ceramic protection on my leased model S P100D, as I will have the car only 36 months. I finally had CQuartz coating applied this week by Blucrown detailing in Katy, TX, and my car looks better than when I got it from Tesla.
    So, I'm late to CQuartz party, but I love how my car looks.

    I also have a leased car and am considering paint protection for my solid black car. Mind if I ask how much the CQuartz ran you?

    for a leased car I would definitely not do it. Normal wear and tear is part of your contract nobody is going to say anything about rock chips and stuff.

    if you're going to keep the car after your lease is up then do it otherwise I wouldn't.

    I see you have pulled the trigger on it though :)

    Thanks! That might be worth it just for the ease of maintenance.

    Does anyone know of a CQuartz installer in the Bay Area who would do it for $400?
    Lowest price I have found is $1000 but that includes glass and chrome treatment, which I can do without.

    Well, for $400 I would do it just to admire the car for 3 years. But my thoughts it was in the $1k range or more in SoCal. So I have passed on it so far. Anyone know someone reputable in SoCAl at that price point, let me know. I would reconsider for sure.

    For $400 yes, if it makes you happy.

    If I could find someone in NorCal that did something meaningful for $400, I'd do it. Mostly looking for a more permanent/semi-permanent 'wax' so that car washes look better.
