Me as well. Just pointed my CA and dealer to the threads on this matter. My Carbon Black X5M is starting to have significant chips in the rear doors, the clear bra is holding on the rocker panels and running boards (however, significant damage had already occurred there as well). Thanks.

Please send me the info too. I have an M on order and I will be cancelling if my CA doesn't acknowledge and agree to cover this if it happens. Thank you

I drove the new cayenne turbo today, its nice but something was missing.
It looks smaller than the old one but i was told its larger. the M feels stronger
and also looks it. the turbo kept reminding me of Mazdas suv from the side and back as well. speaking of the rear end, its just weird and the tail lghts are horrible looking in my opinion. the whole car just felt small...

i hope there is some sort of fix for the M, Ill find out what my dealer says about this problem tomorrow.....

p.s. -thanks lemans

The new pepper is smaller, and lighter, and too Kia/Hyundai looking from the back. IMO

Can you apply your own 3M clear tape? Does it come in small sheets so you could cut a small section for the door and rocker and replace them when you see damage, or after each winter?

Had my car in today for another issue and pointed this out. He kind of shrugged and said "yup".

I don't think any sales associate is going to write you a blank cheque to repaint your car every few months. Sounds like you better cancel and choose something without the wide rubber.

I don't see why this is deemed to be a paint or paint prep issue, since it sounds exactly like any car built in the last twenty years that doesn't have protection for the debris path from the front tires, whether that be mudflaps, running boards, or whatever. Any tape is not going stand up, as people have found out. Other manufacturers have tried a flexible coating (looks like a pebble finish) on the lower rocker panels, but the real fix is mud flaps IMO, or a fender design that stops the debris.

With my growing frustration, I stopped by the Porsche dealer. Drove the new 2011 Cayanne Turbo. Very nice. There was a Panamera Turbo there. This is a picture just in front of the rear wheel well. Not sure if this is an option or put on by the dealer.

That's exactly what I had done to both my X5M and my X5 3.0 M Sport.

So far no chips or marke in the venture sheild. And vie now put well over 2.5k on the 3.0 on this tripand still going.

im now waiting on my dealer to respond, i was told my case has been taken up with
the head of some bmw divison rep and also they would most likely "fix the paint" & "
have the 3M guy redo his end of the deal." everything went well until i asked what i had been waiting to ask the entire visit.
" now what happens when i return with the same amount of miles and it looks like this again ? then what? i am not driving a car that costs this much to have it repainted every X amount of miles."
no answer, it was just met with enthusiasm and confident handshakes that everything will work out and be okay....we will see..

the guys at my dealership are great and if there is anything that can/could be fixed
i feel good that it will happen....i hope so anyway, the car is just amazing
