New X5 M50i Detailing

Hey guys!

I pick up my X5 M50i on 1/19. I'm curious about whether detailing is needed, or not. If detailing is required/recommended then I would love to have your opinion about ceramic coatings, leather protection, and glass treatments.

I read earlier posts about whether ceramic coatings are required and Ceramic Pro. I have a detailer friend who is pushing me to do the ceramic coating, CQuartz leather protectant, and GlassParency. He's quoted the price at $2,500 for everything.

I'm sure there are pros and cons both ways. What would you guys do?

Thanks much!

That pricing seems a bit steep.

I'm paying $1,150 for mine (Ceramic Pro Silver Package) + glass + trim + wheel face/barrel.

This is the 5 year warranty package. There's also a Gold package ($1,750) that's "lifetime" and has 4 layers of the ceramic vs the 1 in silver.

No interior on my deal but can't imagine interior costing THAT much.

Hope this helps!

Also you should note for CP's warranty, you have to get the coating inspected every year. My shop is doing the inspection and topping up the coating with CP Sport annually for free. That's a nice bonus to have.

I'd also look into PPF, well worth it to protect against rock chips etc.

Thanks for the information smomin23. Yes, $2500 seems a bit high to me, as well.

Are you asking your dealer not to do a paint correction?
