I'd say +1 for awareness reasons alone. Most people just don't have a clue! Driving around for a few days sitting on plastic and with a dirty car was a small price to pay, to have my car properly "made ready". Not to mention everything I learned as a result.
This is my third new car... and by far the best looking paint job of them all as a result of the effort.
