Will the dealer offer paint protection?

If not, where is the best place to go? I know there is a type of protection where a clear thin plastic coating is actually physically stuck on top of the paint, what does everyone think about this?
Quite a few members here have gone with paint and leather protection. Some believe it to be a good investment. Any paint protection product will eventually break down and will need to be re-applied. If you plan to maintain your car yourself on a regular basis then I wouldn't pay for the paint protection. Given the cost - you could get a detailer to polish your car professionally once a year and you could wax it yourself every 2-3 months in between. Astra has had great success with the leather protection - she has white leather though. The benefit is they repair or replace any damaged leather components at no cost. If you have black leather - you could opt to maintain it yourself.

There is a clear vinyl product that can be applied to the front bumper, guards, bonnet to protect against stone chips etc. Its referred to as a clear bra and there are several suppliers for this product. Not sure if anyone here has tried it - it can yellow a bit over time.
