Re: Paint Rock Chip Damage is Extreme

Do the mud flaps protect enough or do you need the flaps AND the film. Put mudflaps on last week and got a price quote of $300 for rocker film installed.

Re: First Oil Change - When?

I did mine at 3K, before the car indicated it was due as I wanted the first one to be early. There is a thread on here where some of the guys did the first at 1K to get all the break in residual out.
