I think the sloping "character" line on the Gen III is very attractive and see it used on other maker's cars these days. However, I have received 3 dings on that part of the car in the past 4 months (2 1/2 years with no damage). I don't think it would be possible to put out an alert to the A..holes who slam their doors into other peopleâ€™s cars, 'cause they apparently don't give a s..t! The body side moldings are great for Gens I and II but essentially useless on the Gen III. Is there a chance in heck that someone has come up with a solution?
