Opticoat: 2013 MG 328i Baseline at Detailers Domain

UPDATE:

Just took my car in for a hands on car wash and looks like Opti-Coat's holding up great! Car still looks amazing, dealer room fresh (in fact better than dealer room, since those have customer fingerprints all over them ).

I'll consider this my 3 month test, will update with more pics as time goes on.

UPDATED PICS:






Just had my car Opti-Coated by Phil over at Detailers Domain in NJ today, and can't be happier with the results. Car looks better than it ever has since I picked it up, and now I don't have to worry about nicks and chips as much!

Entire process was quick and painless. Dropped the car off in the morning, Phil dropped me off at a local shopping plaza, 4 hours later my car was ready. The car, lights, and rims were all coated, and Phil was awesome enough to also clean off some light denim stains on my beige seats, and apply some leather and fabric care products.

My car before the opticoat, after some light rain:




Immediately after Opticoat:







And some freebies for me and my wife!





Definitely recommend people in the NJ/NY area to get in touch with Phil over at Detailers Domain and get some Opti-Coat done! The earlier you do it, the less work will be needed!

I'd refrain from giving an exact price quote, since it's quite dependent on the the state of your car's paint and how many hours of prep work needs to be done before the actual coating.

If your paint really IS in PERFECT condition, and all that's needed is a cleaning before applying, then really the entire process takes the shop maybe 1 hour to clean and apply, then wait for it to cure.

I will say that my car, which was picked up from the dealer 3 weeks ago and has been driven about 600 miles, took around 2 hours to prep before applying the opti-coat(feel free to correct me here Phil).

Overall I was very happy with the results for the price I paid, and definitely don't feel like it was overpriced or anything. Just make sure to do your research and get an idea of how many hours the shop's gonna have to spend on your car vs how much they're charging, and go with what you feel is right.

This may be a stupid questions but is it ok to opti-coat a leased vehicle? Would you recommend spending the money and doing it to a lease or just opt for the protection film on the bumpers?

I guess it all comes down to personal preference but any thoughts are appreciated.

Car looks fantastic by the way.
