Rock Chips

I washed my car last night after a 1000km trip. In the direct sunlight I noticed a ton of rock chips infront of the rear wheel openings down by the rocker panel. Anyone else noticing this as an area of wear? I didn't have this wear on my Singapore car. Maybe it is do to the fact that I am running the HRE's flush with the lip. Car only has 3000km on it. Looks like I will have to clear bra that area otherwise it is going to look busted in no time.

Long while ago someone posted a pic of significant chipping on the rockers, it was actually what convinced me to get them covered, especially with after mkt wheels and a more aggressive offset.

I thought about that too, but I'd probably drive that less than my M5. LOL

Really? Its gonna be a screamer I'm pretty sure. Of course withtthe state of affairs right now... Still up in the air as to when they will actually be delivered. Was supposed to take delivery on may 2nd.

But they're giving us $2000 per month while we wait. And an extra year warranty. So that makes the wait a little easier... A little.

GT3 will be a great car once all is solved and they start rolling again.
