$650, huh. Cost is about $50, including the guarantee. I sell that stuff at my dealer, it's the most profitable aftermarket option. You say $10/month ain't bad, it is if it's for more than one year, I assume you took a 72 month loan (also a bad move). It's all smoke and mirrors.

In fact you probably sell a competitive product and is worried about Cilajet!

They're all the same. They help a little, the profit margin for dealers is very large, that's why they push it. I understand you don't want to here you got ripped off. In the end everything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. So if you're ok with your payment, it doesn't really matter.

My dealership also offer it, and I saw the invoice $50 for the Cilajet. It my experience, it does offer better slickness than a sealant...but I dunno about the durability since Im not a detailer at the dealership.

What about the 200 in labor to have it applied?

Im happy to pay for peace of mind of a guarentee and if it doesnt last I claim my guarentee!
I build a kitcar called GTG500 no guarentee but goes 0-100 in 3secs for only $20000! Would you buy it? Its got 4 wheels and seats engine and breaks! Its faster than the M3 and cheaper.... So Is that a better buy than the "upselling" M3? I dont think so : thanx Im happy to pay for Cilajet

Hey, what is your impression with Cilajet now that it's been some time since your M3 was treated? I'm in the same boat...taking delivery of my M3 in a few weeks and want to know if the protection is worth the money (also a PCS customer in Germany).
