How much is the protective film and is it worth it?

Post by avamissile » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:17 pm

I have the option to ask VW to apply the protective coating to the exterior and interior of my T-Roc, but does it really make a difference? And how much were you charged for it?

I’m assuming you mean the paintwork and interior protection?

See this thread, as has been discussed previously

Thank you. I’m thinking not to bother now and just getting the right equipment to do it myself?

The Autoglym kit (that VW use) is readily available on eBay for about £20-30 and is pretty good IMO, just carefully read and follow the application instructions and, if possible, do apply it on a warm day when there is little to no breeze.
