Depends where you live, I guess... Here, in Poland, it cost me around the equivalent of USD1000 for the whole car and 2 sets of alloy wheels. The coat used was Nanoshine Ceramic Pro 9H. There are cheaper solutions out there, but this is the only one I could find that doesn't require any maintenance, no periodic re-applications of any chemicals, just put on and forget.
But there are other solutions out there, just google around your area...
The price seems high, but I was in Mazda showroom where they came and applied the ceramic coat before the new car was issued to me, and I could see 3 guys working on this car for 8 hours non-stop... They will check the paint with a magnifying glass (literally!) under a strong light source, inch by inch, then clean it (even on a brand new car) and then apply Ceramic Pro - coat after coat. Lots of manual work. Then the car has to wait for 5 - 7 days for the coats to fully harden before you can drive it.
How long the coat will last all depends on how well the paint was prepared before the fist application and how many coats were applied. So it's worth doing in a reputable shop that specializes in this kind of things. I would search for "car detailing" and "car paint protection" in any internet local services search site.
