    Anyone had their 4runner ceramic coated and regretted it after? Is it worth it? I’ve been quoted $1700 for 9yr guarantee.

    I turned it down at the dealer for $1400 a little over a year ago. To me It appears to just be a REALLY good wax for folks that dont want to wax. There are ceramic waxes out there to use. My neighbor got it last year and I cant see the difference between his 4Runner and mine on shine or water beading. I wash it regularly no matter the season, if its dirty I wash it. We wax twice a year with a good quality wax. My wife uses rain x on windows and 303's the plastic trim. When we trade cars in, the dealers are amazed at their condition. I guess it depends on how much work you want to do on vehicles.
    Some folks say it helps stops rock chips, I doubt that highly. I live on the southern front range in Colorado so I KNOW rock chips. My neighbor said that it did so I said show me in warranty paperwork and its not there. There are other threads on this.

    PPF is a good alternative to protect your rig from small rocks and minor scratches.
