My father inlaw has bought a brand new motorhome and doesn't pick it up until febuary/march time, he's paid 38,000 for it but the dealer has asked him if he wants it sprayed with something (can't remember what as he is 80) which keeps it clean or easier to just wipe off excess dirt. I'm not so sure about it though as i havn't heard of it before and the dealer is asking for 600 extra for this.
I know it's not a lot of info but has anybody heard of this???

It's an option with VWs.

I bought a bottle of Turtle Wax for under a tenner. It's amazing how easy it is, applies like water, let dry, gentle polish.

Father inlaw on phone at the moment and says they only put it on new motorhomes, im still dubious though.
I will ask the dealer tomorrow what he's on about.

Shirley had her Polo (VW not mint) done with this stuff (she can't remember its name) and hers was 300 odd but included treating the upholstery.
She had it done because the car is metallic black(drug dealers car) and shows every speck of dust.
It does make a difference, but not sure its worth the cost though, however 600 for a whole motorhome sounds a bargain by comparison.

I will go along with Brian and put 590 in the fuel tank and enjoy it

Odds on they will make almost as much mark up on this as the van

We fell for the same trick when we bought my wife's Audi. The treatment was called Supagard and is a nanno technology based polish which cost 350. Found out later that the actual cost of the polish was 40 with the rest being profit for the dealer.

A trip round Halfords or local motor factor for Autoglym products is money well spent in my opinion. No discernible difference between the paintwork on my car (non treated) and my wife's treated car.

Waste of money in my opinion! I'd never have it again unless someone else was paying!


Cheers

Rich
