Was looking at Ceramic Pro 9H too.
Your result convinced me to go for it.
How many coats did you actually apply?
I had my local authorized Ceramic Pro shop do that while the car was still at the dealer's, just when I bought it. I have no idea how many layers they put on - I vaguely remember it was 5, but I may be wrong. But it took a 2 guys 2 days on their knees with little applicators in one hand and a flashlight in the other - it's lots and lots of work to apply this thing, it seems. Last month it was the first anniversary so I took it for the top layer refresh with Ceramic Lite - this is recommended once a year.
Still very happy with the results and if I were buying another car I would do the same application. One thing I noted is that about 9 months into its first year, the coating lost its hydrophobic (water repelling) properties. I got quite alarmed, but then re-read the literature I got with the original application and realized I'm supposed to use a special liquid twice a year to preserve the hydrophobic effect. It's very easy to apply, I did it and the car car body became perfectly hydrophobic again, now I keep a bottle in my garage and will do it every 6 months or so.
What else... the Ceramic Pro coating does not protect from things that will really scratch your body paint, like a stone on a highway or the bottom of a suitcase pulled out of the trunk by my son - a nasty scratch on the rear bumper
I had it polished and it's almost invisible now, then I talked my Mazda dealer into giving me the original, self-adhesive, transparent film strip for the rear bumper. Unfortunately, the strip is not wide enough, there's some bare bumper surface on the extreme ends of the strip, and my son's friend has just given me ANOTHER scratch just where the strip ends... But all that has nothing to do with Ceramic Pro, it's a nano-thin layer, so however hard it is, it can't protect from serious injuries to car paint.
It does protect from the scratching properties of ordinary dust and dirt, which is what it's supposed to do. The sun reflected in the hood is not surrounded by a net of thin lines, as is the case with all other cars in the parking lot. Final note: peering into those other cars' hoods will produce suspicious looks from their owners, as I have recently found out
Hope this helps...
