I'll be interested to the other Fool's answers on the particulars of this one.

But on the post-sale undercoating, paint protection, and interior protection it is my understanding that nothing is actually done for these... it is merely an insurance thing. If someone stains the car, the dealership will try to get it out themselves, but if they can't then they replace it. Basically you are just buying insurance for your paint job and your interior. Only you can decide if you will benefit from this, but don't think they are actually doing anything to your car.... if they are doing anything it isn't anything you can't do with turtle wax and a can of scotch guard.

Not sure what the sound-proofing is, but I really doubt much was actually done at a post-sale point to the car for this. Some stereo shops do this, but they have to rip out your seats and floorboard to put the stuff in... and from what I remember it isn't cheap.

DFW Chris
