They have to drill a little bit. Otherwise there is no way to access the nether regions of the body panels and rockers. On mine they drilled 2 holes in the door jam on each side of the car into the rocker. You can't even notice it.
I went to that Whitby dealer last year and the guy there ended up convincing me to go with five holes, one in each of the 4 doors and then one for the trunk lid. I was reluctant but figured he knew what he was talking about.
This year, I went to the one on St. Clair in Scarborough. (http://www.krown.com/scarborough/#). He did not drill any more holes but thought that he probably should next year. By next year, with the car 3.5 years old, I may let him.
I haven't really found it too messy. I had some leakage out of the trunk for quite a while but nothing that can't be cleaned up in a hurry. I parked the car in my garage just a few hours after the treatment was done and the garage floor is showing no ill-effects so far.

IMHO I would suggest that you avoid using waxes because it will crack and moisture will get trapped...guaranteed. My recommendation would be to stay with a spray based product like Rust Check or Krown....if it doesn't drip...it doesn't work. I take my 8 to the Krown dealer at 1541 The Queensway in Etobicoke (416-503-0505 and talk to Peter). The shop does fabulous work! Give Peter a call and you will be impressed.
BTW...I will be taking delivery of a 2006 Miata GT in the next week or so and it's definitely getting sprayed.
ZoomZoom, wax may crack, but thats why you still should get an annual. I don't think you have proof that wax based doesn't work.
Other than the mess, I also have concerns about oil spray after both my rear power window motors burnt out on my Passat, not to mention a bunch of other electronics. Its one of those things that is difficult to prove or point fingers at the oil spray, but its not unusual to say oil mist on electronics isn't the best thing.
