Question Eckbond Coatings (Exterior & Interior Protection)

Just purchased a 2013 RX350. Dealer was pushing "Eckbond" Appearance Protection Package for close to a grand. I didn't take it but am wondering if anyone out there ever heard of this stuff? Googled it and couldn't find any reviews.

From a professional point of view I can tell you this much:

DO NOT LET YOUR DEALER WASH/DETAIL/APPLY ANYTHING TO YOUR VEHICLE'S EXTERIOR OR INTERIOR.

A high end, reputable, professional detailer will do a much better job and use much better products.

If you are looking for the best protection for your paint, try searching for premium paint coatings such as CQuartz Finest, 22ple VX1 Pro, and Opti-Coat 2.0.

Let me know if you have any questions

We got the interior and exterior with eckbond for $600ish. There was another package that offered warranty protection against dings and other stuff. Rock hit the windshield yesterday and cracked it and chipped the roof in two spots. Not sure how it holds up against tree sap, bird poop, etc. yet. I have low confidence in it and will be applying sealant and wax once I get a chance.

I just checked their website http://www.eckbond.com/products/ and they claimed ALL kinds of protections: bird drops protection, dent protection, burns, cuts, rips & tears protection... seriously??? Seriously??? Can you hit your car with a market cart and see if it can protect from dent lol. This is TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!!

No way a product can protect the way they claim. Even if you wrap your car with metal (no such thing),metal can still dent.... dent protection... wtf... that is just.... lol give me a break!

If you have low confidence in it, why did you spend the money on it? Just curious
