New Mini Lease Do I need the extras ?

Hi Everyone!
I recently took possession of a new mini 5 door. I absolutely love it. However, I have a bit of time to cancel the additional packages I was talked into signing. What are your opinions ?
Excess wear and tear - I take great care of my vehicles, but have haggled with car companies over very minor issues before (unless I signed a new lease).
Tire protection - these sound expensive to replace. My finance guy said 1500 Canadian for one new wheel and rim?
Replacement cost - do I really need this on a lease along with the gap insurance ?

Thank you!

New Mini Lease Do I need the extras ?

I just got my F56 less then 2 weeks ago. I too got the excessive wear and tear, but thinking of returning it. My lease is for 3 years and I have taken good care of my last cars (not minis). Yes, they had minor scratches and a few small door dings, but all of which would be covered under the standard lease. It was the extended coverage of the tires that made me get it, but i have a feeling i will be okay after 3 years.
