Hello
I ordered Side protectors for my Type R, (part of the city pack) when I picked the car up on march 1st it was raining and they looked okay. But today parked in my works car park they seemed wavy and badly fitted.

I phoned my dealer and went down to see them and they agreed, and have ordered a new set for me?

Has anybody else had this problem with the side protector either on there own or in the city pack. I am sure I could have fitted them better myself............................

might have fitted them 10 mins before you picked the car up. just watch they dont damaged any panels trying the remove them.

That sounds to me like they have already fitted them once, in the wrong position, and the pressure needed to remove them has warped them.

In their new state they should be quite rigid (and straight) ?

Mine are

My rear ones were replaced for the same reason (apparently they don't work with the rear sensors????), Get them to heat the panels before application, thats what they did on mine and they're stuck well and truly :)

I have the city pack (side, front and rear protectors) - no issues with mine at all. They look great.

I also have parkings sensors - so there is no problem there.

I have the city pack (side, front and rear protectors) and dealer says my parking sensors are still working OK but emit no sound! Dealer says I need a new speaker. Unfortunately Honda do not keep speakers as spares so I am in for a long wait. Car is 3 weeks old and so far I have not reversed into any walls.

Please dont let dealers wash your car , the swirl marks they leave is shocking.Ithe protectors are shockingly expensive.
