    I like to share this to you guys.
    If you have kids or elderly people they will always open the doors and hit the car next to it and chip off the paint.
    This MOD is a must have and will stop it from chipping the doors, I got it from BMW parts shop but I think you can order it from Valant in MK (sell European parts).
    The parts number is 51 91 0 410 829, I have also have some photos of the DIY of my old BMW E60 showing how to put it on.

    How about educating passengers so that they respect other people's cars just like you like yours to be respected?

    Or did I misunderstand your post???

    I think I would rather have chipped doors than put that on it :scared:

    Youpidou, noble gesture but not likely in Hk. The space between parked cars in Hong Kong is minimal, as close as 30cm or less often.

    this will be imposable in HK.
    In HK the parking space are very small and very hard to avoid.
    Kids always forget to open doors softly hard to avoid.

    you have too much money :crying:.
    To paint a door cost $130usd in HK and I know it will be 50% more in Australia so if you chip all 4 doors then it will cost $520usd, I much rather use this money on other mods.

    I would worry more that they chip my door than mine chipping theirs.

    My roadster has such a strip installed; not sure if it was added by a previous owner or part of the part armor option back in 2010.
