I've had my car polished and ceramic coated in the past ~6 months. Professionally, which cost me about $750 since I didn't trust myself with polishing my car properly. The ceramic coating is basically supposed to act like another "clear coat" layer and makes it easier to maintain the paint. CQuartz, Opti-coat, and some others are the main names that come to mind. Look over at the autodetailing subreddit on preferred coatings/proper applications/etc.
Oh honestly I completely forgot about the 3 year paint warranty. I'd assume if you ever run into any problems with the factory paint, just omit having ceramic coating done.I’m considering having a shop do CQuartz on my 2018 sonata. I know the cars come with a 3 year paint warranty etc. so I’m curious about if Hyundai would consider paint coatings as warranty voiders. Any thoughts on this?

Also, if you don't know/want to paint correct your own car, I did think about having paint correction professionally done, then ceramic coating the car myself (videos on youtube; not as tricky as getting the hang of polishing paint). I might do this in a few years when I get the coating done again. Or maybe try polishing since I do have all the supplies, just not the confidence
