I wouldnt bother with any paint sealant from your dealer as he will rip you off. I bought some DIAMONDBRIGHT paint sealant off E-bay for £26 and used it on my MAZDA. I then did the Cooper S with Maguires Gold Class wax about £12 a bottle followed by a couple of coats of Autoglyn Extra Gloss about £8 a bottle over the Meguires wax and there was no comparison with DIAMONDBRIGHT which was nothing special. The dealer will use either DIAMONDBRIGHT or SUPAGUARD and charge you a fortune. Your best just buying a good quality wax like Maguires and do your pride and joy every 6 to 8 weeks. Personally I wouldnt want to leave waxing the MINI for 3 years......these paint sealants are a lazy way out. You get much more satisfaction spending a couple of hours on a Sun shining it up yaself.
