I am not sure which way to go. Spend £1400 on paintshield or get it waxed by a top notch detailer on a regular basis

Opinions

The car is on the boat to UK!!!!

For normal protection take a wax. For anti-paint-chipping use a paintshield.

Two entirely different concepts.
You only need a paint shield film if you drive at high speeds in heavy traffic, tend to tailgate when held up by a slower car, or have crappy roads that can have gravel on them. Otherwise save your money - the car looks better without it!

the spray tarmac and leave loose gravel approach to road repair seems to be the norm these days in the uk. I would expect a car as low as the r8 to be a real magnet for stones on the bonnet.
