Talking Cilajet Applied!

Just got the Cilajet coating and I must say, it sure shines it up!

Awesome finish. It is not applied on the vinyl wrap or stripes, correct? What was the cost?

Thanks everyone. It was $1000 for the dealership to apply exterior and interior and rims. Warrantied for 5 years and then reapplied for free to cover another 5 year warranty. So, ten years in total coverage. I read a lot about the pros and cons but frankly, it looks amazing and if it does what they say it does, I will be happy. They did not apply it to the vinyl wrapped hood as that would have made it satin which i do not want. I'll keep you all posted on how it holds up. Now just waiting for my blackout bowties to really make it look fierce.

Car looks amazing. Is it true that with the cilajet coating you don't ever wax again? And only hose off with water and dry?

This is True. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I decided to get it on my car as you can see and so far, no regrets. I love how easily stuff washes off of it. Plus you can't go wrong with a 10 year warranty. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to keep their car looking clean.

This is actually the closest I have ever been to the car. I don't know why he doesn't trust me near it. I just want to mark it. No big deal.

Just wondering : Does Cilajet help hide swirl marks?

Do this : Take a picture of the top or top side of your car, of a street light reflecting off of it. IF its too dark try it with the sun on a clear day, and post it here? I'm curious to see if it helps.

tks!

Is this something every dealer can has on hand and can apply or do you have to buy it first? BTW car looks awesome!

I didn't have swirl marks yet so I am not sure if it would cover swirls. Not every dealer offers it from what I understand. There are a lot of competing products that are sealants based on other threads on the forum. This one has a warranty so hoping my decision was good. Not sure if Simoniz is equivalent. Will try to post pictures in the sun this weekend.

My experience with GM Black paint is that swirls are part of the deal.

Looking forward to your pics...awesome 1LE you've got there!

Same TPW, same color, 1SS vs 2SS, but we want our car too! Very disappointed, but I understand how these things can happen, and I rather they ship a car that is correct, than one that gives us fits! Maybe today will be our day!

Looks shiny like mine with cilajet. How does the black look in the sun? Did it tame the swirls, make any difference over the original finish? Nice 1LE. I like your color choice.
