I've never understood these.

They're supposed to stop stone chips in the bonnet... yet they look hideous, and what about stone chips to the bumper? You can get these to fit the whole bumper as well and it looks even worse :doh:

i think they suit the euro look, but not ideal for the paintwork. like said above grit can form underneath them causing light scratches etc. would have to keep removing it to clean underneath.. or maybe put some sort of film on the bonnet underneath where these fit to protect it a bit ;)

There was a thread on these the other day saying they are cheaper buying them direct from germany.

I quite like them but as asaid before i no a few people who have had the and they have scratched the fook out of the bonnet.

ive heard of them getting damp aswell holding water, I like them I'd only have one if I had a full front bumper one, I've seen a full one side wings the lot, that looks cool.

But like ya say each to there own..
