Seems like the 2016 new front fascia has more painted surface area than previous design. So I am wondering if the rock chips will be more obvious to see. Or if the new design does a better job aerodynamically and minimizes rock chips somehow. I know this is very subjective to road conditions and geographic location. But I'm interested in MS owners who have the new design (without paint protection film) and if they're noticing the rock chips more, noticing less rock chips or cannot tell. The reason is that I'm taking delivery next week and agonizing over paying even more for paint protection film. I've read a lot of the other threads on the clear benefits of PPF, but I have not seen anything mentioned about the new design and if rock chips will be really more pronounced and will make it look bad in several years without PPF. Clearly the previous black plastic nose cone was probably good at hiding the rock chips.
