OMGHi2U Blue Steel... Good idea/Bad idea??

Recently bought my first Subaru and I'm wondering if the bluee steel stuff really worth it or not.. My previous car, a 07 civic, started to get chipped in the front bumper and hood and don't want my first subby to have the same fate.

When I bought the car I was offered the Blue Steel protection program. Costs about $400. They put a chemical in the paint and is supposed to help protect it from sun, debri, etc.

I been looking all over the place and found some disappointing info. People who have purchased the blue steel service say if something happens to the paint, they have to make a claim. Aside from taking several days or week for processing, the repair job is usually touch up paint. Most people say you might as well stick to wax and protective films.

Definitely NOT worth it. Pay a professional detailer a couple hundred dollars to come out and get your car looking super nice and seal it. Then get yourself some sealant and maintain it yourself. It's cheaper and your car will look sweet.
