I ordered a new i20 today, and got given the leaflet for the paint protection. Is it worth paying the £299 for?

If the paint protection system is a clear bra or a paint protection film, only then its worth it!

Otherwise you can polish and seal your car yourself using quality products!
DO check out detailing world for tips on how to do it yourself!

Cool Paint protection system

Hi guys

Just to be clear so you dont think Im trying to infiltrate the conversation I work for a paint protection system company called TRIBOS coatings.

We are based in the UK but have companies set up all over the world. so hopefully if you have any questions on paint protection systems I might be able to help.

If your car has a paint protection system on it you will probably have some sort of info in the car. Im guessing the reason the remover will stipulate that it shouldn't be used on a protected car as it will A) remove the protection and invalidate any warranty 2) some ceramic coatings can be difficult to remove and can cause marks if it is not removed properly.

KBT2101 It really depends which Paint protection system they are using Obviously Im going to say this, but some just dont live up to their promise. Ours has been extensively tested against all the leading competitors and was originally designed for the superyacth and aviation market, we guarantee it for 3 years but it does really work.

The level of protection and the durability of the product is they key happy to answer any questions on this but be aware I might be a little biased

They are both good products but they will effect the colour and finish of the car as they are a film based concept and that film is not completely invisible it does offer very Good Protection though. Our products wont defend against stone chips etc where as these should

I hope that helps guys any questions Im happy to help

It all really comes down to what you want to protect your paint from!

Protection against scratches and scuffs + against environment, for nearly the life of your car!, can only be had by clear bra or other good quality paint protection films! One can use any paint sealant over these films to protect them and make them hydrophobic and this easier to clean!
Best part is, your original paintings remains intact against scratches, chips etc.
Check this out - REALLY a fan of Paint Protection films now - BMW M3 (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3)

The seam of the film showing is due to improper installation of the film usually!
I've seen some proper installs where the seams are completely hidden between panels and one cant even tell that there's a film there! The above link just made me a huge fan of the paint protection films!!

And in case your film becomes dull, you can easily polish the film too!

Protection from only the environment(including uv) with scratch resistance for upto 1yr or more can be had by ceramic coatings! (these coatings are really hydrophobic so help in cleaning too.)

Protection from only environment with slick hydrophobic paint for 2-3 months max = quality paint sealant

I'm a detailing enthusiast and have used coatings like GTechniq, Cquartz and Opticoat 2 and I love them!
But I still use paint sealants and carnauba waxes as they take my polished paint to a whole new level of shine! They don't offer any protection from scratches though!
