Salesman i talked to today was pushing the Seal and Protect option for my future 1 series. Is this actually worth it, or is it just a money spinner for BMW?
I agree with this person. Loads of cars at my work got covered in white overspray (luckily not mine) , but anyway the company had a massive problem on there hands coz everyone was demanding a respray coz the owners couldn't get it off themselves with a simple wash, so the company contracted a detailing company to do all the cars, prob close to a hundred. And so far there hasn't bin one complaint and there was no overspray left on the cars but as there charging £300-£400 per car there shouldn't be any complaints. :lol:uktrailmonster said:If you really think you need it, then get it done by a professional detailer, not the monkeys at your local dealership. They'll do a far better job and it'll cost you less. Many of them offer a new car prep package. Personally I wouldn't even let the dealership wash my car, let alone apply paint sealants and waxes! See the detailing section on this forum and you'll soon get the idea. Don't fall for the sales push, it's bordering on a scam in my view.
+1! I think its already been confirmed as such on here anyway but it was my opinion that a couple of decent washes and waxes a year would do the same thing, £250 saved to spend on other options!Webby said:Dealer paint protection? :lol:
An absolute crock.
As someone already mentioned here, I wouldn't let any dealership wash my car let alone rub something on the surface.
