So, I bought a brand new ISM hatch a few weeks ago and have managed to wrack up 2071 miles since the 19th. Most of that spent on a car trip back home (WV, I'm active duty Navy stationed in VA). We got some snow while i was there and the roads were heavily salted.
After washing the car I was very disturbed at how many knicks there were on the front side of the rear fender flair (dozens). So my question is what is the best way to protect this area of the car, or is it a lost cause? Another question is if all the new WRX/STi have the plastic covering over that section of the car, or did the dealer forget to take that plastic covering off.
