In a word, NO unless it's free and still NO. I'll bet they apply the sealant and don't even clay the car, what idiots. The manual or leather seat tag specifically states not to use anything on the leather other than mild soap and water. Undercoating may trap moisture and hide rust. Your dealer is a trying to rob you and screw up your car.

My girl got a package from a dealer for her 04 G35. It was called " A touch of Class". This was before I knew about sealants,pc,poorboys, etc. With this package, if anything gets on the paint, bird dropping,sap, etc. all you got to do is give them a call and someone will come over to take them out. The only drawback is that it takes about a week for someone to come out to do the work. We had some work done about a week ago because of some bird crap. Depending on the price it might be ok for the package. We got it for 295.00 for 5 years.

Now if the dealer is trying to sell you a sealant package and thats it, you are better off doing it yourself. You might want to give Gary a call..

The ONLY two packages I bought from my dealer was an extended warranty on my 06 300C to get it to 7yr/70K Miles, and the 3M coating on the front end (forgot what it was called) for $299.

That would be a resounding no, unless as NR suggested, it's free.

I plan on keeping my 300C for a very very long time. After reading this thread I am still a bit confused. The part that I am clear on is that DO NOT get the paint protection as Gary's (Turbomangt) stuff does the same if not better job. I also understand not to get the leather protection, so if someone could explain what the alternate would be to protect the leather.

The part I am not sure is do I get the undercoating done? The above poster says that the undercoating may trap moisture and hide rust ... if this is the case then even if you get it done for free it's not worth it. I have been told it also acts as a sound barrier as well protects from the salt in these Canadian winters. I would really appreciate some feedback from the "GURUS" on this forum. Thanks!

Please refer to this thread from today which also addresses the exact same subject. :wink:

Koolkar; The leather protectant that they try to sell you at the dealer isn't any better that the one that Gary sells at turbomgmt. Just like the paint protect, it's much, much too high.

It is worth it if you ask me, just not from the dealership. They outsource it anyways to a "The Protector" warrantied detail shop. Get it done directly though those companies and you'll save $1,000.

Everyone keeps mentioning the sealer....Who cares, you can do that yourself.

The portion I'm speaking of is the rustproofing and the undercoating. Get it done.
