Paint protection
Should I buy Supaguard paint protection?

Paint treatments can help to prevent colours fading, particularly with bright colours such
as red. They also offer added protection against bird droppings and tree sap.

However, if you intend to use an abrasive polish when youre cleaning your car, you might find that you rub off the added one-off protection youve paid for.

Dealers will try to make a big profit by asking 350 or even more on these treatments. The actual cost is around 100, so even if youre offered 150, the salesman stands to make an extra 50 for little work. Haggle on the price.
