Vehicle protection pre-delivery option

Hi guys,

How many of you went for this? Paint protection and polish blah blah leather cleaner wheel and dent, wheel and bumper repairs for 2 years?

I would always decline this sort of stuff but thought I'd throw it out there for you guys.

Still haven't sold the M3? Your price going south? My 135i went from 78,880 to it's eventual sell price of 64,000 lowering it at least once a week.

Try an application of Collinite 476s and/or 845 - wil last up to a year and does everything the factory stuff does and more.

No not as yet, dropping it as the payout goes down. TBH I would love to keep it but too many cars = too many lease payments and not enough tax deductions.

Put a new battery in this week, $1100 WOW.
