Hi. Just to make a comment. I did mine with Happy Car.

Anyway

1) coating will not prevent scratches or chipping from stones - mine kenna already

2) coating is overrated. Effect wears off within a year. But of cos I did not maintain it. Just did once.

3) cost should be at least $250 and above for Singapore.

I can only say I did it with happycar.

I will recommend Ceramic Works. They uses KubeBond. Their workmanship is good, clean and professional.

I will getting my new ride too in 2 months time.

Was looking around. Price would be in the range of $250 - $700+ depending on the detail package.

 

I think currently there are two types of coating. One is 9H and the other is 10H.

Am not sure too which grooming shop will be providing the better and more durable product. Workmanship and play a part I believed.

While I am not sure, I would be looking into their warranty given. On average, it would be 2 years for $250 - $300+ package, and probable 5 - 8years for $500+ - $700+ package.

 

Similar to other bros here, would appreciate for recommended grooming shop.

 

I need to park under the sun on every workday. Hence need the coating.

I've always found simply applying an excellent carnauba PASTE wax twice a year does the trick on my black car. Love shiny black!

I rented a lousy car in Singapore, and upon return this happens which I am not aware.
Do you think this is wear and tear?

Obviously this is paint damage.

You should have checked before you sign out. Otherwise the rental company has the right to claim this damaged under your hands.

It will not be based on my experience bro, but the rental company conclusion when you return the car back to them.

 

If you have pointed out during the time when you have sign-out, then it will be wear and tear under their account. Now they would or could determined that you have damaged the car paint.

 

So probably next time if you would to rent another car again, do a thorough check through as if you were collecting for your own ride. 

 

Just my 2 cents worth.
