Should we buy a discounted paint protection scheme with our new Vauxhall Astra?

We are taking delivery of a new Vauxhall Astra at the weekend and the garage is offering, Diamond Brite paint protection for £149, reduced from £250. Do you think this is a good offer? I know we can do it ourselves but our joints are starting to go.

That's cheap. Worth having at that price.
