To do ceramic coating correctly requires about a 3 days process. And would cost about £300 to £500. There's a product called Paint Protection Film which would be around £1500.

If you are going for doing it yourself, then I would use a quality sealant and then topped off with a wax to provide a great glow to the paint. Do everything, door jams etc and follow a good cleaning routine to keep on top of it all.

You can get hold of autoglym and auto smart kits on eBay fairly cheap which are supposed to be applied at the dealer when you buy the car. It’s not too much hassle to take your time and apply these treatments yourself, but cost hundreds if you ask the dealer to do it.

cquk is fairly idiot proof

but before application the paint needs to be in top condition and perfectly clean

iron fall out remover then clay bar followed by a good wash then a cleaner to remove any residue

Get ceramic coatings wrong and the only way to remove is by machine polish

Ended up with CG's 100% carnauba BUTTER WET WAX for now, for winter will swap for some synthetic Jetseal/Autoglym Extra Gloss Protect+partially Stone Guard vinyl+leather bonnet guard(tough winters here).

BUTTER WET WAX is doing well, give great shine for painted plastic/lights as well and partially works as liquid wiper above 30mph too.
