dont park in a crowded lot, and you wont have those issue.....dings will happen...even driving down the road from rocks.....Motorman said:Ok.... That's why the rainbow has 7 different colors I guess. But it DOES protect at this location, because it's 1/2" depth. I've tried it on an SUV, mini-van, and mid-size car. Some small Jap sleds almost get thru but even these hits are greatly minimized ,so you'll get a "peck" instead of a dent.
As for why mounting it there? look at the affect putting it where Sportwing.com and others say, at mid-door. (pix on their site) It adds a new, 3rd body line to our SRX's gorgeous profile, and that is what I call hideous. JIMHO.
Wonder what you'll say when "ugly" dings/dents appear eventually on your beautiful doors????
I wish good luck.
