The company managing the lease for my MCS has 'offered' me exterior pain protection ("so that I will never have to polish the car and it wil be protected from bird droppings, sap" etc) as well as interor protection of the fabrics. If I take up the offer I will get free window tinting ("normally valued at $690).
The cost for all of this is $1,390 and can be added to the lease which means an extra $3.00 per week.
I would really appreciate any thoughts on this please. Prices quoted are in Ozzie dollars BTW.
I'm presuming the paint treatment would be like the old 'ming' but I've had no experience with it and really wonder if the value is there...
Methinks that the company will get more from this than me..
you can buy a kit on ebay & do it yourself. i got the Autoglym lifeshine kit which is exactly what you describe - some polish, glass polish & spray for the upholstery - for £22 on ebay. applying it is not different or more difficult than giving your car a polish. having seen what's in the kit there's no way i'd reccomend anyone buying this 'service' from the dealer. not only does it cost so little, one kit would probably do at least half a dozen cars.
Ditto to that....But for some reason (Italian food & alcohol) I ordered Interior leather protector for my Konig Leather race seats in my VW. Ended up costing a bomb, and I dont really see any advantage!
Thanks for all that everyone....and thanks Scotty, I read that thread of yours and no doubt someone will ask the same thing in 12 months or so down the track.
The girl that rang was very clever and at first it sounded as if it was free..seeing that it was an 'offer.' Even when I thought it was 'free' I was hesitant. Before reading your responses I had decided it was a waste but do value the opinions of the nutcases and on this site..Thanks again...
P.S. Enzo, I don't know that you should post your own picture as an avatar mate....
I had it on my first car (it was a demonstrator 323 that had it on already) and it was a real pain because you couldn't wax the car for 3 years (or the length of the protection warranty) which was all well and good until 6 months down the track when it looked terrible, the finish was all dull and it just looked like it desperately wanted a polish. If you are prepared to wax your car every couple of months, don't bother.
