3m Stone Guard

So my dealer calls to let me know my car is in. 2013 335 xdrive. Black sapphire with black interior. I am 5 hours away and can't pick it up until next Friday.

Anyways, I am getting a few things done while it is there. ASS recoded, windows tinted etc.
The dealer calls and wants to know if I want the paint protection, interior scotchguard, tire insurance, and 3m stoneguard.

My opinion; (REMEMBER THESES PRICES ARE IN CANADA, SO DON'T MY US FRIENDS)

paint protection - no, I can wax it myself

interior scotchguard - no thanks, not for $600

tire / wheel insurance - thinking about it $1295 for 4 years

3m stoneguard - 8mm covers bumper/hood/mirrors/fenders? for $1195!!!. Doing some research it appears that the product is actually good. But it seems I can get this done for $700-$800 at the actual place that BMW uses.

So my question is, 1) is the stoneguard a good idea 2) for my Canadian friends, what is a good price for the product?

8 millimeters? Wow, that is really thick.

In the US, 3M sells a product called "clear bra", which is a very tough clear film for the front of the car. I have it installed on both my E90 and my E83. It has held up very well. It is almost invisible on most cars (somewhat depending on the color of the car).

I will let some of the Canadians comment on the price. That is a lot more than I paid, but I realize there is a lot of difference in pricing.
