      From what I understand it’s about 2500.00 for a Vette here in Saint Louis.

        Welcome ByteBiz. Glad you joined us.

        Good question. One other factor for your consideration is the number of coats that is applied. Most do two coats, but check with your chosen installer — for obviously the number of coats effects the price. My 4 1/2 year old Z06 had two coats and still after driving to 28 states, its gloss is unequalled.

        In Oregon we pay closer to $2,000 or a little less (but have not checked pricing lately). I have a “place” for my C8 to go back to the identical installer.

        BTW, I had him “install” its cousin product of CQuartz DeLux on my wheels and my tailpipes (again 4 1/2 years ago), and to clean the tailpipes, any detailer and a black microfiber and less than 15 seconds and they still look like new. Or if lacking detailer, a touch of saliva works just as well.

          First subtract what dealer prep you are not paying. $400?
          Then consider what tickets for a factory tour cost and add something for it being VIP. Way better.
          Then consider what a VIP museum tour is worth where they tell you stuff that is not on plaques.
          Now consider what it is worth to have your paint gone over and corrected as well as anything else not perfect before you ever see it.
          A custom console badge in your car. Not sure where the C8 one is?
          Then picture your new car roped off in the center mall of the museum with your name on it. Viewable on their internet cameras. People congratulating you. Special memorabilia.

          Another little know thing is they put a 8.5x11 sign on your car saying NCM Delivery. Not sure why but they want the line workers to know!

          It’s a good deal. Do it!

              Hey CZR. What is this $400 dealer prep you speak of?

              great sales pitch, btw. You have me considering it.
              Thank you.

                John, you are definitely a car guy if you use saliva for a detail spray. Do you use a second finger if you need a second coat? ☝️🖐 just wondering before I try this. 🍻 🤷🏻‍♂️

                  I have been looking into ceramic coatings. I know you need to go to an excellent dealer, but can someone tell me which is better and why, CQuartz Finest, or Ceramic Pro .
