PS Graphine coatings are soon to replace ceramics . They are as prone to water spots like ceramic coatings. A few YouTube videos out there on the new graphine coatings
I too use Carpro Reset shampoo. Stuff is amazing, best I've used.

I've done two cars now, both were done at high mileage and i used Car Pro Quatz. After paint correction and coating, the paint looked like new. I had really good results doing the paint corrections and application of the ceramic is very easy. Like other said its the day or two of the prep work. I will take delivery of a new X5 late September and am now planning to use Graphene from Ethos. There are a few properties of Graphene that are advantages and they claim a longer lasting coating. From my ceramic experience, it makes maintenance much easier and using a 'topper' of ceramic spray after a wash or once every few months brings back the slickness and high gloss. I am a DYI'er, but plan to graphene the wheels, plastic, glass and paint. Lots of You Tube info and my experience is it certainly worth it with Ceramic and if water spotting is reduced with Graphene and a longer lasting protection its a no brainier.

I'm having my car coated with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra Pro + EXO top coat. I will be picking it up today after work and will share my thoughts along with some pics
