    No, I don't think so.

    I have a ten year old $3 can of wax in the garage and an application of that once a year or so seems to do the trick nicely. A can or two of Scotchgard will protect fabric seats and something like Lexol works fine on leather. I like 303 Protectant on the hard surfaces, although mostly I just use a damp rag to wipe down the dash.

    Mop and glow packages are just about pure dealer profit. Run the other way.

    Its certainly worth it to the dealer. He may need that $350 to help pay for his kids' braces or if they are older, college textbooks. Have you seen the price of college textbooks today?

    Is it worth it to the customer? Absolutely not - just as Steve said.

    what is it?

    Edit - oh, it's that stuff (wax/sealant)? Forget about it! Worth 1/10 of that.

    No, this is just another dealer upsell that benefits them more than you. Just read your owners manual on care of the vehicle and that will be fine.
