Should I get paint protection on a new car?

Is paint protection worth having?

Paint protection can offer longevity for your car's paintwork and help to retain its resale value. Whether you choose to have it applied or not depends on a number of factors, including whether the car is being leased or purchased, how long you plan to keep the car and how the car is used, such as long motorway journeys.

If you are keen to keep your new car in the absolute best condition possible for as long as you own it then it is a good option, but if this is less important then it is likely not worth the extra outlay.
