Rust proofing the underbody of a BMW E38 728i 1998

Does anybody know a good place in munster ideally or other counties that are good at rust proofing the underbody for my BMW E38 728i 1998 and approximate costs.
thanks in advance

There are a few places that offer this service for land rovers as they suffer rust, Google that they might be able to help

Hi todds. It's a wee bit far from you, but Townsend Street car wash and Valet in Banbridge Co. Down underseals cars for £50. They use finnegans (now waxoyl) and by all accounts do a very good job.

One thing to note on this is that the car needs to be bone dry and simply spraying under-seal or Waxoyl onto the underside is a big no-no.

Bottom of car needs to be thoroughly cleaned and then dried off...any rust needs to be treated and then then protection can be applied.

Simply applying it to dirt and moisture is probably worse than not having it done at all!
