Maybe you are, I almost did but decided it wasn't worth the cost as there's no way I'm having plastic right along the middle of my paintwork so it would have to be bodycoloured and I thought the price was a ripoff tbh.

From experience on my previous car (r.i.p.) some idiot whacks your door with theirs, everyones door protectors are different heights so they are almost worthless I think, even if it hits your side protector I found it looks almost as bad having a chip of paint took out of the coloured protector...

I have to agree with Fedorov.

They look Ok, but the point is a bit lost when every car has them at different heights. Better just to be careful and hope for the best.

I park mine next to a wall at the front of the house so I bought some thin transluscent ones from eBay to protect the paintwork from the brickwork. Unfortunately they are useless since the door pillar hits the window sill before the doors hit the brickwork. :roll:

This doesn't really show what the car looks like with them but I'm sure you get the idea.

They will offer great protection from the ops sorry! brigade.

Loads od guys out there don't give a s**t for other peoples motors.

Not like us lot in here.

Therefore they are worth every penny.

......and I think that they look good as well!

I've got the door protectors as part of the city pack (all fitted FOC) personally I think it makes the car stand out from other civics
