The following link takes you to a page of Euro Spares.

To the right of the main illustration are some US only parts that seem to indicate additional protection for the wheel arch.

I am looking for some form of anti-stone-chip protection for wheel arch lip due to the damage I have seen on some 3200's and think these may be just what I need to protect my 4200.

Can any one confirm what they are for and if I am barking up the right tree?

Thank you

Part

I think these are just clear film appliques, like 3M film. I have them on my 04 Spyder and they're starting to peal off. Could be wrong though.

Thanks Doug, my thoughts too.

Suprised they are standard on US models but not on UK...After all our cars rust far better/quicker over this side of the pond!

Is there any chance of a photo or 2 if anyone has these fitted.
I'm also a Brit and like Safrane has written these could save our metal over here.

Yes - that would be a clear 3M type film. I have the same on my US spec GS and they're barely visible and do a great job protecting from road rash.

The photo wouldn't show anything-it's clear. If you're worried about chips definitely try these. They have no affect on the look of the car.

I have them on my 2004 US Coupe. They barely stick out around the fender flare and are a clear film. One of my front is beginning to peel just barely and i'll have to work on it this spring. Can't really get a good photo, but attached a photo I took when I bought the car as I was concern about it at the time.
