I'm looking to get my car ceramic coated on the exterior and have the interior detailed by a shop. The more I think about it, the more I feel I should have my interior ceramic coated as well instead of an interior detail.

I'm assuming ceramic coating the interior will offer more protection and look better is why I'm leaning towards that instead of just an interior detail.

Has anyone ever had their interior ceramic coated? Is it a lot more worth it than just detailing the interior?

Anyone ever had any experiences with having a shop ceramic coat their interior?

I'll have to ask the shop what's the price difference between an interior detail and ceramic coating the interior. Anyone know the price difference by chance? Thanks

Yes, I did myself on my Camaro ZL1 on all of the Alcantara and plastic pieces. There really isn't anything you can't ceramic coat if you're using the right product.

What would be the benefit? Does it repel stains?

Yes, makes the surface more durable against any contaminants, just like ceramic on the exterior.

Yes, mine was done. Prices are all over the board.
Price is cheap if you do it yourself. Its not rocket science, it really is very easy.

Interesting...... I had no idea the inside could be ceramic coated. With that said, I do have some Meguiar's hybrid ceramic spray. I think it's the hybrid anyway. Could that be used on the interior surfaces after a good cleaning?

As long as its made specifically for plastics and and fabric, not all ceramic coating is designed for that. This is what I used for my the Alcantara in my car.


This is what I use on everything else including the exterior.

Yeah but the do-it-yourself products tend to be lower quality products that require constant re-applications. The pro products tend to be more durable. The installer claims my exterior ceramic is good for nine years. You won't get that out of a $7.99 product at Walmart.

Jokes aside with my earlier post, but I have ever heard of interior ceramic coating. Scotch guard yes, but this is all new to me. Carry on....

True but I don't recommend a 7.99 product from WalMart. I'd rather have to re-apply the product every 2 years at $70 per bottle than every 5-10 years at $1500-2000 or more. I get it though, some people don't want to do the work themselves.

I didn't either until last year when I bought my ZL1. Apparently its been around for a few years though. Most people just think of the exterior. Ceramic coatings are being added to everything now. Its so versatile and it provides long lasting protection.

They actually don't even do Scotchguard anymore - its a proven cancer causer

I only know of it because I have 3 detailers that are good personal friends.

I believe 3M Scotchguard just recently reformulated their products and claims to be safe now. Who knows.

They may have reformulated it, but a lot of businesses wont even use their products now. Some are even outright banning the use of it on items they sell as well, meaning if its on an item, the store wont carry/sell it.
