My 1.2 tsi se, will arrive March 2012, does anybody know about paint protection products? is it nessecerary? or will a regular polish suffice? I previously had a mercedes and was talked into having paintwork 'stargaurded' don't know if it was worthwhile.
Something worth thinking about. Speak to a car detailer and ask them for a quote for waxing and protecting your car. They are far more professional and careful at doing this than a dealer, it is purely what they do, and will have a vastly wider range of products that they can offer.
One up in the north east now gets recommendation straight from the Audi dealer rather than the Audi dealer doing it in-house. They saw his work and realised it made their cars look so much better that it was better PR to do that then send out weakly protected paint jobs.
As detailers also tend to be enthusiasts they are quite happy to talk options for you rather than just screw you on price.
Mine came with Auto glym protection and my last car VW Touran had protection. It does make it easier to clean but won't stop it getting dirty or tar marks or stone chips some of the makers will make you think that a spray of a hose will magically clean the car, not true. I always hand wash never put it through a car wash. Then good soap and water and wax .
