Spot on allypally. It also isn't a marketing gimmick it is an outright ripoff.
Don't fill the greedy dealers pockets with your hard earned cash. I did it all myself for well under $100 and after the job was done the products I purchased remained all near full.
- Carnauba Wax (purchased in store here in haste) followed by Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax (due to shipping costs I purchased 2 online and yet all cost less than the price of 1 here)
- Scotchgard tins for carpets, mats and cargo area (purchased 4 in error at BigW)
- A small tin of a leather protector from Bunnings.
- Professional window tinting for $150 (all round) and not just the front like the dealers offer.
As the Meguiars came with a clay bar I then did our much older second vehicle.
I have since had the new car replaced and last weekend I performed the same thing on the new vehicle using the leftovers.
This weekend I plan to do 2 other family vehicles - again using the leftovers.
Apart from the scotchgard I will still have enough of the carnauba wax and ultimate Liquid Wax to last quite a number of years - applying it once or twice a year depending on weather and travels.
