Well i finally got round to fitting my mud flaps at the weekend.
Now before i fitted them and having read these forums i knew there was an issue with the focus re stone chippings along the sills etc. I thought i had one large (bout the size of a 10p) area where the paint had just come off, i presumed a large stone or something had taken it off.
It was only when i looked closely behind the front mudflap area that i could see what i thought was splash dirt marks was in fact chipped paint.
From where the front mud flap is, going right along the sill for about 24 inches is chipped and marked paint work.
As i said above i never really noticed before i assumed it was dirt and would wash off, i think the reason i thought that was because with the topcoat off (tango red) i assumed the primer would stand out but it doesn't it just looks like dirt splatter from the front tyre.
It's funny when you have a car a few weeks you suddenly notice all these things you didn't see in the showroom, for example i thought the car was virtually scratch free..................in the past 4 weeks i've lost count of the new little scratches and chips i've found
