There's a BIG difference between the $300 "wash and spray with ceramic" and the $1500 "full treatment with clay bar", but not sure the $1500 is worth it. I did the expensive once with my Raptor. When I go out to Squirrel Ranch, it gets MUDDY, so I have to wash it (especially undercarriage) a lot. For about 3 months, it seemed like it was worth it, the mud did really come of the paint a lot easier. After that, no. I would consider buying the spray bottles and doing it myself, but, lazy. Water works. ;)Hmm. When I leased the BMW they offered ceramic for $300. Had I known it was that expensive on the outside I would have gone for it. In fact I often wish I had. My finish looks really good when it's waxed. But that doesn't last long. I get compliments from strangers all the time but I really think that it's the striking blue finish (like Brad's but better). It's just a 3 series but with the M package and blue finish it does look purty cool.
I don't have a garage - long story. I bought the house as a foreclosure with intents to turn it for a profit. One of the downsides of the 4000 sq ft is that 900 sq ft is the enclosed, finished and air conditioned three car garage. The previous owner had three boys so he used the garage as a work from home office and play room for kids. Anyway my first job was to reclaim the garage which I haven't done yet. So in the mean time the car sits outside all the time. Fortunately I don't live up north. Scraping sunshine off your windshield is a lot easier than scraping ice and snow off your windshield.
Off topic: If you own a pick-up and take it to the car wash then ur gay.
As for the part in bold: you must be talking about guys with mall crawlers for trucks and have no idea how long it takes one to get big mud off your driveway. ;)
