I'm buying a new car, not brand new but a 2015 model from a main dealer.

The dealer is trying to get me to take out paint protection coating, is it really worth it, I'm not sure that it is.

The dealer has also suggested that is I take finance out with them, the finance company will contribute towards any major mechanical/electrical repairs if needed.

Personally and considering the car has a 1 year warranty, I dont think they would, or are the bound by the credit consumer act?

Dealers interest rate is circa 8%, whereas I could get 3.6% from my bank or 2.6% from another lender.

Is it worth getting finance through the dealer compared to other sources?

Regarding paint protection....

You can buy a kit to DIY for less than £20 and are likely to get as poor a result as the dealer, if you want it doing properly find a local detailer and leave the car with them for a day.

These products can be very good but rely on the car being prepared properly which is time consuming and unlikely to be done by most dealers.

If you want to see the obsessive dedication some have towards a shiny car head over to the 'detailing world' website.
paint protection is bs its a pre impregnated cloth or sponge
That they charge silly money for as above give a detailer who will decontaminate the paint work for you then give it a deep gloss polish.

Dealer paint protection is BS.

But done correctly by a detailer is very good.

Once again - Detailing world website is the place to be.

I've declined both the paint protection and the credit facilities with them, hopefully buying the car this coming week.
