Should I get my new car detailed?

In short, Yes you should. Specially if it is not a leased vehicle and you wish to maintain that original gloss for as long as possible.

Besides, this is what Auto Detailing is all about!

It's about maintaining the finish of your vehicle protected, even after it is as clean as it can be, and that requires special product and reconditioning treatment which normally your dealership does not specialize in. I have personally seen high end car dealers use Silicon based products on vehicles, and as an automotive detailing specialist, this is a huge no no.

BUT, the car already looks impeccable!!!

That is true, when you just get a brand new car off the dealership or even shipped straight from the manufacture, It will have some level of paint protection wax or polymers on the paint and on the hard surfaces/leather. However, those already existing paint protectors or interior leather and vinyl conditioners will only last for a short while, and because we know that auto dealers and even manufacturers do not specialize in automotive products, much less detailing, they won't use the most reputable auto detailing products that has been scientifically tested, contrary to actual detailing companies.

There is no such thing as a Mercedes, Audi, or Bentley detailing product, And you shouldn't trust a Dealership more than an actual detailer specialist.

Okay so , I may just wait a few months before getting it done!!

That is fine, as long as you are sure that your vehicle has an existing paint and interior coating on it, which normally it's hard to tell which product was used from the dealership. It would be wise to just start off fresh by getting a specialize detailing treatment done to your vehicle before you drive it in all the harsh elements. By following the correct steps with actual detailers, you will have that peace of mind that you are not jeopardizing that beautiful first layer of gloss from your vehicle's paint job. Your detailer should recommend to you a Ceramic Coating service treatment or Sealant to your vehicle's paint job.

Be sure to avoid polishing your brand new car!

Polishers are not Waxes or Sealants. Polishers are fine abrasive products which is made to cut through a microscopically thin layer the vehicle's paint job, which will correct minor paint imperfections. However, When you just purchase a brand new vehicle, your paint job will have a surface film which helps to maintain that Gloss to your vehicle's paint job. By polishing your vehicle, you will be slowly removing that same layer, which can jeopardize the protective properties from the manufacturer's paint job. Do avoid polishing your new paint job, but do make sure to maintain it Sealed and waxed always. You can never over wax your vehicle!

Should I pay extra to the dealership to detail my car?

There has been a multitude of people who initially trusted their dealership with their detailing needs. They even paid a ridiculous amount of money with Paint warranty coatings and Vinyl conditioning treatment. So far, these people only later realized how much they were overpaying for something that was not even that great for their new vehicle.

Exemple: I remember this one time where this lady, lets name her "Susan", paid over $1,200 extra along with her car purchase, trusting that her dealership would actually use the best treatment for her. In the detailing world, a $1,200 service would entail at least a full interior coating treatment and exterior Ceramic Coating Treatment which is indeed considered to be the best Paint treatment for your brand new vehicle. However, after a few weeks, when Susan decided to have her car detailed by an Actual Wings Mobile Detailing company, we noticed that they only applied a Sealant coating to her car, and an interior regular plastic dressing.

Did she pay all that extra because of the quality of the work?

I was hoping so, but later when we realized that the detailing was done using one of the most cheap and hatred auto detailing product brands, we noticed that that was not the case. Susan had simply over paid for her non quality service.
