Asked by Feb 08, 2008 at 09:00 PM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Even if they fix it, it will do it again. It is a defect in the car. But I love it, Is there any way they can put extra protectant on my paint job. Or is it even worth it? The whole bottom side of my car has chips in it.

Agreed, splash/mudguards are the only way to prevent this from recurring.

There is nothing that can be done. Mudguards work, but do you really want to put mudguards on an tiny car. I just put a good coat of wax on mine and the chips aren't that noticable.

There is a material that is a protective clear coat of adhesive. I think its called clear bra or somthing, most of the luxury cars such as Mercedes and BMW have this protective clear coating near the ground or any area of possble impact. Its not terribly expensive, i bought a kit to protect my lower OZ Rally Lip. It cost me about $30 with lots of extra sheets.
