Are Renault Gap Insurance / Paint protection bundles worth it?

I've just ordered a new Megane Coupe GT line and besides the delivery date being 9 weeks away (how long does it take on average?) I've been given the choice of buying three different packages:

Bronze: 45
  • Carpet Mats
  • Car Care Pack

Silver: 295
  • Carpet Mats
  • Car Care Pack
  • Ixtar G3 Glasscoat Paint and Interior Coating

Gold: 495
  • All the above plus Total Loss Cover

Now I assumed car mats would be included but I seem to remember on other cars I've had they were extra so I'm not bothered about paying for that and I've got loads of high quality car care gear as I live with two car fanatics so don't really need this.

I've seen on other forums that the Ixtar G3 is a bit of a joke as it doesnt really do anything and it is massively over priced / you can buy the gear on ebay and do it yourself. But as I do 400miles a week would the professional job be worth it?

Ive also looked at Click4gap at their costs for Total loss cover and its about 180.

Now I'm obviously going to try and get this price discounted as the sales man will still get a healthy commission so I will be looking to pay around 200 for the gold package, my questions is if I can get it for this; is it worth it? Or should I just get my own mats separately, give the car a polish / wax once a month and get external gap insurance?

Sorry to ramble on but wanted to get the whole picture out there! Anyone else been offered this and made a decision?
