As you said there are lots of opinion on this topic

For me I thought it was expensive and bought my own wax and did it two weeks ago.
Also I have the leather seats so the protection in my view was not worth it

supa guard is good as i said on another post it depends on how good you are at looking after your car- if you like to spend a day cleaning your car and think that is a day well spent, then you can do the same or better for a lot less money, if you however like to use a car wash then it def helps keep it looking better for longer. its a paint sealant and interior 'scotch guard' treatment, you also get a nice after care kit too if you are getting it from a dealer worth about £50 it really depends on how you like to use your spare time

I got it and the pack is nice - I only got it as a bargaining thing from the dealer, you do get key insurance with it too and an extra thing that helps if it were to get stolen too..

Brought this on our old car feista sept 09 as it was our 1st brand new car and said we would never have it again how do you really know if you've gotit other than paperwork? we use showroom shine and the more you use it the more protected it is ,and to put it another way when we p/x it counted for nothing anyway! £300 down the drain!

I got it...but negotiated the price down and built into my monthly figures...I wouldn't have paid the full price, but getting the interior scotchgauarded(effectively) is a big plus when you haven't got leather...i'll let you know what I think of theexterior finish when I first wash it...as I've gone for black, I like the idea of being able to wash it quickly without the need for wax etc...who wants to spend hours polishing, buffing and shining...i've got more important things to do with my day...like driving my shiny new car!!!

Thanks Guys for all your replies


Mate, all you need to know is that supagard, Diamondbrite, Life shine, gard-x and all other derivatives are all high quality waxes/sealants.
There is no such thing as a specialist "seal" which protects the car and puts a magical shell on it.

As mentioned on here - how do you know they have even put it on? If you have a brand new car, the finish on the lacquer will easily repel water for months and months. It only stops repelling water when the lacquer gets pittedand the water clings on the the microscopic holes.You are much better off buying some top quality wax and doing it yourself.

Theres lots of diamondbrite and supagard on Fleabay. They are very, very easy to apply, really, no "magical" skills required.
Alternatively, the wise man buys a tub of Autoglym Hi-Def wax or something similar. Will be just as effective but last 5 times as long.

Nuff said,

Andy

p.s cheers Fee, just seen your comment!!! Its just the fact that I hate the way these products are marketed - its such a rip off as they make obscure claims but do not provide any guarantees that can ever be followed up. Salesmen WILDLY exaggerate the capabilities of these products, not based on their effectiveness, just based on their massive commissions/profits. Dealers pay £20 for the products and sell for £300. Its a bloody disgrace.
Same as GAP insurance. I bought my car with cash but had 17 NO LIE 17 phonecalls from Evans Halshaw (Dealer group) before they got me in. I thought it must be something urgent about my car or some looming disaster - no, they just were trying to sell me GAP insurance. The woman on the phone would not take no for an answer until I got VERY abrupt with her and told her to f$ck off!! all that hassle for GAP insurance, really shows how much money that little scam makes them.....

OK Calm......calm.....

Andy

I personally think its an overpriced waste of time...

Had it on my first Qashqai and it didnt make a blind bit of difference

A good wax from Halfords or EBay and some elbow grease yourself is whats required. I personally like Meguiars stuff...

IMO - Save your money

one more thing to add if you added the cost to your finance then you will be paying interest on it aswell. Might also just mention I have all sorts of stuff split on my car seats in the past and my carpet cleaner man down the road has always removed them no problem for a nominal fee
