Totally worth paint correction and ceramic coating. It really brought out the pearl in the paint and that shine will last 8 years!
The shop I went to uses Modesta. I rolled in with my MDX and he was working on a Ferrari so I assume it’s good stuff!Which Ceramic coating did you go with? I went with CQuartz Finest on my 19 MDX back in 2019 and Ceramic Pro for my 18 RLX in 2020 (painted surfaces, windows, and rims). I also did Ceramic Pro for interiors. Both are holding up perfectly and I only hand wash/dry with microfiber and ceramic soaps (inside and out).
I have never owned a black colored car ever in my life and never considered that color when I was purchasing my 22 MDX( I got the Liquid Carbon), but looking at the picture of your car, now I am not sure if I missed out. That is a classy looking car. Is it just the ceramic coating that makes it look so good or are others without it just as good looking? Congratulations!
We did the same with my wife's ASPEC, I worked the deal with the dealer, only paid half which was less than $400 CND. It's worth it, I always have it on all of our cars.I was able to get PPF (clear bra) on the full front and mirrors for $1600. I felt this car needs it with such a large tall front end.
I did once, a 1978 280Z, and as a result I'd not own a black car again. It looked great when it was freshly washed but very quickly showed the dust and dirt that accumulated afterwards and it's compounded by the area I live where it goes many months with no rain thus the dust just accumulates. A neighbor with a black Tahoe solved the problem by having a detailer come to their house either weekly or every other week and wash theirs but I didn't feel like washing mine that frequently.I have never owned a black colored car ever in my life and never considered that color
