Oh serious question now ... Supagaurd worth it or not ?
depends how much he's charging you, and always go for a deal on it. GAP is worth it though knowing the nature of the car.

Apparently it's on back order & fitted by the dealer... although my dealer will be using another local company to fit it.

I had an FR 20VT before the LCR. Still running it in at the moment, but it does feel quicker & more responsive and a little more stable through the twisties. Not much in it with fuel economy, only about 4mpg less than the FR on average. The standard Pirelli tyres are pants in the wet... luckily I bought a set of LCR alloys for the FR and put GSD3's on them, so got 'em swapped over. The Brembo's take a little getting used to, bit of a bite compared to the FR. Sure you'll love it tho... some people think I'm mad buying another new car after only 5 months of having the FR, but I'm very happy with it! :D

When you pick it up, have a good look round it... there was an R badge missing off the driver's side wing on mine (amongst other things).

*edit* as already mentioned, the GAP insurance is well worth having (£299 for 3 years cover) but I don't think the Superguard is worth it. You're probably better off buying your own detailing stuff and do it yourself following one of the detailing guides on here... the products will be as good, if not better and you'll go it for a fraction of the cost (and you'll probably do a better job of it too ;))
