Scotchguarding a new car - is it worth it?

I recall comments in the past about Scotchguarding the new cars. My dealer has offered to do the interior and exterior of my new Fiat Abarth 595 for £250. Is it worth the extra cost?

I did this myself using the Auroglym Lifeshine dealer kit and the seats of my 500 Lounge remain as new. £250 is reasonable, but you can probably chip it down to £200.
