Hey all, picking up my black 1500 Sport CC tomorrow.
Got some interesting emails from the dealer. Curious re: your thoughts (because I AM concerned with keeping the black looking nice). Thanks!
When you have time , please watch this 4 minute video (make sure tom let it load fully). Starting a few years ago, auto manufacturers worldwide were required to start using water based paints/clear coats and not lead based making the paint much softer and susceptible to environmental damage.
I am sure you are familiar with Modern Marvels on History Channel.
The video states that the warranty on Simonize Glasscoat is 7 years, since the video was made,they now guarantee their produce for life !!
Your new truck will be guaranteed to stay looking the exact way it did the day you pick it up forever.
2. The second part to this equation is that we have combined Dupont Teflon Protection,which is also guarantted for life with Glasscoat.Your vehicle interior will not stain. With the exception pretty much of paint you will be good to go. If you have any issues with stains and we cannot even get it out, the fabric will be replaced under warranty. Please read the attachment in this as well as the third email.
I generally don't endorse aftermarket products, but when I saw the Modern Marvels video , now I can.
I will be sending one more email with further information.
Most Mercedes dealers charge over $1500 . I can have this done before you arrive.
One of the reasons Glasscoat was created is because folks want a warranty on their paint. Manufacturers no longer warranty their paint, that is why you see auto transport tractor trailers carrying cars covered in white plastic. The paint is warranteed to the dealer only. Let me know.
$597 for both.
