Ceramic Coated M5 In Los Angeles

There has been a lot of online chatter about ceramic coating and how it differs versus waxing. I recently had my M5 ceramic coated by Envious Detailing and the results are fantastic. It gives your car a fantastic wet look and it makes washing and maintenance a lot easier. It makes you paint super slick and water glides away.

In Los Angeles, we are going to have our Fall Driver's meet on Saturday September 14 at 12 noon. It's always great to see old friends and meet new ones and talk all things M related. We have these lunches four times a year and they are always a blast. Please shoot me a private message on this board and I will send you the invitation. Here are photos of my ceramic coated M5:

Where'd you have it done? My 2020 I took delivery of in Europe just arrived at the port and I should be able to pick it up soon. I'm interested in both ceramic coating and Xpel.

Looks great!

I echo the same sentiments as well regarding Ceramic Coating. It's not cheap, but it's worth it IMO.

If you are good at detailing and have a bit of patience . You can do it your self. Ceramic makes maintaining much easier

Itís pretty easy to do your own ceramic coating if you have the setup. It took me about 20-hour total but very happy with the results.
