LEXOL for the leather, hand down the best! they have a cleaner and conditioner... use BOTH once a month!

the factory paint has a pretty good sealant... as far as making sure it lasts, wash it regularly, and wax it every 3-6 months depending on if you park it outside or in a garage. use a quick detailing spray in between wax jobs after each wash :thumbsup:

and if you want a car cover, coverking makes a good one. i went with the dealer car cover which is good too.

None of the above. They are money makers for the dealership and nothing more.

I used to 'install' rustproofing, waste of $$ IMO.
paint/interior protection are WAY over priced. Take the car to a reputable detail shop once you have it in your possession and have them apply a fabric protectant and polish if you are not the type to do things like that yourself :D

I'll disagree on the rustproofing.....2000-2003 Chevy trucks that were rustproofed still are solid....non-rustproofed ones are coming in with lots of rust rot. Needless to say the ones without the rust are worth more.

Would I rustproof an SS? No, but then again, I wouldn't drive it in the winter. A V6 daily driver? Sure I would.

But then again, I have been one to always do it myself and just pay for the materials...I don't need a warranty on the rustproofing -

The best rust proofing bar none (IMO) is the Carwell product. It's so good, the US military uses it. I know they sell their product to distributors in different areas so it must be available in places other than here in Buffalo where the HQ is, but I didn't see a listing on their website so I emailed them the question. I'll put up the answer when I get it.
