The price of an opti coat will vary depending on correction needed - surface/paint needs to be as good as you can get it as it's a permanent coating..so a 2-4 year old car will cost a lot more than a brand new car...

Expect to pay around $500 or so for opticoat prep and install.


22ple is something that should never be supported.

He has rates on his site. I know he's booked for a while as many of my previous Porsche clients book him up early.

Tell the man what product you want he'll do it. Moreover, like any professional he will most likely need to look at your car to give you a exact figure on the correction prior to opticoat.

Yeah he sent me an email last night. Quote for not seeing the car he is around $780 seems a little steep. I don't see a $300 price decrease from him looking at the car.

I was able to find a place Auto Image Detail in Barrington IL. With opti warranty and no major paint repair $495. He will use the full 10oz on the car. if there is enough product for 3 coats he will do 3 coats. Great guy to talk to on the phone.

Soooo if anyone else is looking check them out.

I'd question them on how many they've done and see results, Opti-Coat isn't supposed to be layered. Now I've heard of others using it but honestly it just seems like overkill.

It can be layered just fine actually.

They do all high end detailing. Cadillac Porsche Audi Lambo Benz etc.... He rattled off a ton of info more than I was even asking. They are also on facebook with some of the cars they have done as well.
