    Paint Correction and Ceramic Pro - What a Difference

    With my R8 celebrating its 10th birthday, it was time to deal with the inevitable road rash and swirls in the paint. I took it to a local guy on the north side of Cincinnati -- carZMedics -- and am very pleased with the results. The car looks better than it did the day I picked it up.

    He did the wheels too, which have always been a major pain to clean.

    Here are two photos he took after everything was done. I'll get some more when the sun is out -- rainy day today.

    I did the same thing about six months ago and the result was remarkable.

    The car looks sensational. I have been thinking about doing the same with my 2009. What kind of money does this service run typically?

    I paid $2,300, which included paint touch up and correction (many minor paint chips from 10 years of driving fixed), Ceramic Pro 5 Year for the car, and Ceramic Pro for the wheels. Just the body was $1,690.

    Looks great!!! Best money I've spent yet on my GT and Cali T. Went Feynlab Self-healing but the Ceramic Pro is great too. The critical element is the skill of the correction and application. Yours looks fantastic!
