    Any good solution to protecting door edging for new car.

    Hello, i have just taken delivery of a new (ish) A3 with perfect door edgings. Any way to protect apart from the normal (rather ugly) door strips. Its black.

    Hi mate get some clear vinyl from Lamin-x or similar 3m product, it will protect the edge of the door, and if applied correctly will be hardly visible unless you look really closely, no one will know its there. It doesnt fade or discolour and keeps your paintwork shiny and new underneath and is easy to remove. Cheers
