Unbelieveable as it seems new vehicles are normally handed over not looking as good as they should and have defects already spoiling the finish of your new car purchase. The exterior of a new vehicle will have already had a hard start in life due to poor finishing at the factory, harsh transportation where the paintwork can suffer from bonded contamination, holograms and normally marring and swirls inflicted by very poor dealer preparation. Its at this point that most vehicles receive most damage as many are prepared hastily using dirty sponges, brooms or old chamois's.
Nearly all dealers will also offer you a never polish or wax you car again "wonder sealant" or "protection package" for your vehicle to protect your paintwork and interior for up to 10 years. Dealers normally charge anywhere from between £400 to £899 for a product that they buy in for next to nothing. These products are often not applied properly inflicting more swirls and damage by their sub standard wash techniques and end up locking in the defects with there 2 stage wonder sealant. Some dealers charge for the rpoduct but actually never even apply it!
