Interested in knowing how everyone else is doing with rock chips...

I've currently got 4 (1 on drivers door and 1 on rear bumper...no clue how that works)

I've only got 5600 miles and I feel like by 50k it'll be rediculous. I want to keep the paint nice but it's not working very well.

Note: I've already had the front bumper repainted due to a gravel truck f**king me. They paid for it at least.

I purposefully don't tailgate but it doesn't seem to help.

On a side note I just installed these rock guards:

(Can't make this not sideways due to using my phone)

I got an xpel clear bra on mine immediately after I took delivery. I knew the paint was so thin it was going to be necessary to keep it looking halfway decent. All I would suggest for you is to use some touch up paint and then get a clear bra. Honestly not anything else you can do.

Even though I swore I'd never do it again. I ordered a clear bra for this one too.
Took it to a hand car wash and the little mexican lady put a nice chip on my door, getting into it.

Should've called INS on her azz, or Trump.

Roads in Wisconsin are horrendous. I got three rock chips in the hood just on the drive home from the dealership. A week later I sprayed on 3m Paint Defender. It's helped.

Yeah my front bumper is covered in rock chips and they are all over the car randomly now. Having 15/20 spacers hasnt helped, I feel like if you go with wider wheels/tires or get spacers it is wise to get mud flaps or rock guards

I'd be pissed, but you played yourself by not doing it yourself in the first place.
