    You are not alone, but you knew that already...

    "There is another..." (and I don't mean me)

    Personally, I have had it on a few cars including my previous MX5. Decided against it this time, going to try and stay on top of waxing instead.

    I'm still undecided whether the product is worthwhile, but at the usual £300-ish it is a total rip off. My understanding is that it is applied like a wax and then polished off after allowing it to 'cure' onto the paintwork - the product itself costs a fraction of that £300 (I hear of kits regularly going for 10% of that or less) so the dealer must be taking a large wedge of profit, even after paying the labour of the bloke(s) who apply it.

    Only you can decide if the benefit outweighs the cost, but remember it won't stop your car getting dirty! If I ever do opt for it again I'll not pay more than about £100-£150. Like I said you should be able to find a kit yourself, so if you are up for it you could apply it yourself anyway for a few quid.

    Same goes for GAP insurance, the other dealer money maker - shop around because cover is usually available for less elsewhere, e.g. ala.co.uk (I got 4 years new for old cover, gap limit £20K, for a shade over 200 quid) whereas dealer wanted I think 349 for inferior cover. This is the first time I've bothered with it, but i thought that was reasonable value even given the very low probability of a total loss event (i.e. unrecovered theft or write off).

    How about an expat Brit living in Canada?
    Does that count?

    I didn't get the coating added when I bought it. I did it with two Toyotas previously, and they still had to be waxed regularly.
    I waxed it not long after I bought the CX-5 and it looks great!

    I've had similar on other cars but not this time. There are many self-applied products which do a good job.

    Just picked up my Met Grey CX5 AWD at the weekend, I have ordered the Tow Bar for my Mountain Bikes, the LED running lights ( to make the car more visable to other motorists, as the grey is quite dark) the under garnish plates ( I had these on my Volvo XC70 and they looked good) and the floor mats - so far only the floor mats have been fitted.

    I am so far very pleased with the car, although the iStop does seem to have mind of its own and I haven't quite figured out the keyless entry ( when is the boot open and the door locked?) - maybe I should read the manual?
