You must live under a rock, everyone drives something like a Lotus Elise nowadays, they just trick us by having completely encompassing body kits that resemble Hondas, Toyotas, Hyundai's, etc.


You're clueless :picard:

Alright so I'm planning to go to the states in my new BMW 2012 335i sport I recently bought. However, my concern is that with all the highway driving will debris scratch the coating of my car? So I was just wondering if it does scratched, what location of the car will likely be scratch, is there a way to lessen/prevent the scratches, and if so how much are likely the repairs?

I'm also wondering does my BMW has some sort of clearcoat I been reading about on cars.

Forgot to say I'm going to Portland.

Thanks in advance.

If your that concerned to drive the car then maybe you put it in garage and wipe it with a diaper

I would try to put your resources into melting down the car itself.
Sunfires :sadno:


Lol I don't actually own a Sunfire, nor would I ever. It was just the first crappy car I could think of off the top of my head.

Posted Image is what I actually have. (Not my picture, I don't fly my car out to the beach.) Nothing worth making 2 threads to brag about but slightly better than a Sunfire I think...
Why not Zoidberg? (\/)(°,,,°)(\/)

Hopefully you have some type of diamond clear coat on that thing. I can already see that Portland sand slowly eating away the entire car...

Lol, give the guy a break! He bought a new car, and rightfully so, he wants to take care of it. The problem with so many used cars these days are that the owners treat the car like $hit. So good on the OP for taking extra precautions on it. And the car will be fine. As mentioned if you're really concerned, get a hood gaurd. The front tends to get chipped if you drive fast or if you are behind a big vehicle.

Have fun on your trip :)

Yeah, don't tailgate dump trucks. Best way to get chips on your front bumper and hood and possibly crack your windshield.

I take it you've never driven before?

Generally speaking, when you drive, you know these things.

So I am assuming you're retarded, or have never driven before.

OP should cover his entire car in Ns so it won't get dings or paint chips...

Does BMW has any ballistic restistant clear coating? Expensive car like that with Canadian plates makes you an easy mark. Just a few tips. Always keep doors locked and windows up when not at highway speed. Remember when the gun comes out don't panic just get out of the car and walk away without making eye contact. Always keep your cell phone in your pocket when driving so when you exit the car you can call the police (911), your insurance agent and a cab.

Have a nice trip.
