    OK... i have had it with my rear fender flares looking like crap. I would like for everyone to post pics of their fender flares with paint chips along with the year, purchase date and current mileage. When we have enough post, i will forward all of this info on to corporate. Also, if you have no chips yet you best go out and get some clear 3M paint protectant to put on them before it does.

    AGAIN, JUST POST PIC, YEAR, PURCHASE DATE AND CURRENT MILEAGE. TRYING KEEP THIS AS NEAT AS POSSIBLE :top:

    Mine is too. Here is a pic of the drivers side.
    It's a little dirty from rain today but it's pretty obvious.

    Mine is chipped as well, although not as bad because I had mud flaps behind the front tires for the past 8 months. Ironically enough, the mudflaps have scraped the paint off (all the way to the plastic) on my side skirts so they have to be repainted now too. :motz: I removed the flaps last week to install the SOS drop and already see new chips.

    I'll get pics tomorrow (dark outside now).

    Ive gone rounds with the stealership to get mine fixed and they finally did. They put 3M film on it after they repainted em but the film they used peeled off and now they look 10 times worse than they did. TAKE IT TO EM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Post pics later.

    Mine are not nearly as a bad as some but my mileage is still somewhat low. I can see from others what I have to look forward to though.

    My front lower bumper is probably the worst of any panel. It looks like someone sandblasted it :motz:
