    There was a similar thread for VF1, Please post what you paid, what car variation you bought and any extras/accessories you got etc,
    also what state, to give people a realistic ball park when negotiating a better deal.

    Cheers

    all 3 with paint protection??? :bang: Do yourselves a favour, cancel it ASAP and take the car to a detailer and get Opti-Coat Pro+ Applied. Will cost you half the price (or less than) and will be 100X better for your car!!!

    I have to agree. I'm sorry but the paint protection applied at dealerships is a joke. The actual product applied isn't great, all you're really paying for is the warranty it comes with.

    Not only is the product not the best, they don't give the guys applying it the time to do the job properly.
    If you really care about that kind of stuff, do yourself and your ride a favour and get it done 'professionally'.

    Some of the stuff they sell is alright, but we just shake our heads sometimes with what they sell and what some people pay. You'll get people absolutely screw you on the car and then they'll go into the 'MM' and they'll spend $3k in 5 minutes flat!! :bomb:

    I've never bought a new car before the Redline Wagon 3 months ago; but knew about the Ming Mowl.
    When 'Mandy' (name invented because I truly cannot recall) was going to talk to us, and I checked for clarification that she would be talking to us about paint or interior protection, the dealer was quite happy to shoo her away when I said we wouldn't be interested. Surprisingly easy to avoid that particular Hard Sell. :)

    We'll often not 'introduce' them if the customer is adamant that they're not interested. All it does is create angst when you force someone to speak to them, when you know they don't really want anything. Tint or an extension of manufacturer's warranty are worthy items at the right price, but just about everything else they sell it hardly worth it.

    At the end of the day there's no substitute for looking after your car. If you can't be bothered to wash and polish your car, then no paint protection, fabric protection, etc, that a dealer can sell you is every going to help. Some proper paint seals applied by qualified detailers I'm sure are worth the money, but you can't guarantee that a dealer applied product is going to be any good.

    I'll be in the market for an SSV or SSVR later this year/early next (QLD - preferably in Some Like it Red Hot with a rear wing), so interested to see what deals are out there!

    In terms of paint protection, do people have views in terms of Opti-Coat Pro+ vs ceramic based coatings such as Ceramic Pro 9H?

    Seems to be people are paying a real premium over S1.
    Or is it all the options?

    I guess it was the warranty that sold it for me, and getting both paint protection and tinting as a package - $1300, should I be crying?

    The car arrives in the dealer holding yard on Monday, would it be too late to cancel the paint protection?

    It's only just been released, mit fancy new V8 engine & now makes all the right noises ... you'd expect to pay the extra $1500 for a V8 for a start, but supply vs. demand means the deals that were available a month ago on the about-to-be-replaced S1 won't exist until maybe 2015-build cars in February-ish.

    Smee's $51.8 for a redine manual sedan with sunroof and tint + paint pro is a pretty sharp price right out of the gate. Knock off the dealer add-on and you're under $50k.

    It's a very sharp price. I don't know how they've actually done that deal TBH. It's well below dealer invoice cost.... They made have gotten some help somewhere.
