Yes the best thing to do would check with paint shops and independent valeters and as you are doing check the web, this stuff cannot be hard to apply but if your children are young then good seat covers or blanket perhaps-- not as attractive but practical.

A point to note all these products LifeShine, Diamondbrite, SupaGuard etc all have a material cost of approx 25 - 40 (size of the car dependant) plus valeters time ... approx 25 - 40 .... total to the dealer is usually 50 - 80 or LESS ...... dont get ripped off .... the valet company will usually do the job for much less or ask the dealer to do the work for the material cost as a sweetener to the sale ..... I have had my last 5 cars done by Supaguard by the dealer for FREE as part of the deal ..... surprise them by asking what the material cost of the treatment is (and proving it) .... or just buy the materials and do it yourself .... never takes more than a couple of hours.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?

Lifeshine? Depends on how long 'life' is to Renault. Considering the failngs of some of their car components, I would be cautious.

As has been mentioned, get it as part of the deal or do it yourself. If however it is guaranteed for 'life', which I doubt, then let them do it.

not a great renault fan then! i have had a few now and they have been more or less perfectly reliable bar the espace i have traded in, utter money
i think i will buy the kit and do it myself, as i said the only thing making me considerr the dealer doing it is i would want the interior protection done properly but cant be that hard can it?lol

The only possible reason to pay 300 would be if it was guaranteed.

Just sounds like a means of reaping a bit more profit though.
