Its there scorp. They didnt mention it to you. If you have paid 1700 then an Anti Slip Boot mat is included. Its not in stock right now. I confirmed this with the Sales Cons and also the Mahindra Car Yard where they fitted it for me.

The other thread had a list of the Combi packs. Its mentioned there too.

For 1600 you get the Rubber and 1700 you get Carpet. I got the carpet.
Looks luxurious and branded with Figo on it. Original Accessory from Ford.

Is external paint teflon coating really worth it? Does it prevent scratches?

The TBHP Guide does not recommend it at all.

Underbody is recommended though.

No. No. This is my opinion.

Thanks.
I'm beginning to think that UB protection may be more vital than the coating on the paint!

I don't know about teflon scratch protection but the 3M paint protection that I have on my car is worth every penny spent on it. My car still gleams like it stepped off the showroom yesterday. 3 services for Rs. 3K.

^ How much did the 3M treatment cost? Does it come with some sort of warranty? Are there different kinds of coating?

The external paint protection is only useful against fine scratches for a limited time only. If the color of the car is black, it may be worth a try. Other colors do not even show these scratches that get prevented.

I have not experienced it but hearsay is that paint transfers from small rubs on other vehicles also do not stick due to the teflon coating.

If you get it done at a real good place and unless you are getting it as part of some offer, teflon coating is worth it. My cousins black santro still shines as god as new after 5 years!!!
