who can tell me if the "ding guard" for lack of a better word, that runs along both door outer door panels is easily removed?? I am thinking it would streamline the look of the car... if its simply adhesive keeping that trim on, (and no i am not talking about the black lower portions of the car) Any takers?

Re: Exterior

Has anyone else removed the door trim / ding guard? It seems the guy who said he did vanished. Pics would be great

I like the look of it too. It seems like it breaks up the door. The door would look kind of weird with that much 'flat area'.

Also, before I go ripping mine right off the door, are we absolutly sure that it is only held on by adheasive? It would really suck to get half of it removed only to find that there is a plastic rivet or something that leaves a nice hole in the door.
Precisely

Hey my bad. I have pics of my 06, But I cant get them posted. I will take some of my 07 tomorrow and post. The door things are really held on by adhesive. I took them off both of my MkV and one of my buddys. Washing and light scrubbing may be necessary. But who doesnt want a clean fast?!
Excellent, I appreciate it

Re: Exterior

Thoughts / opinions?

I found this pic on www.golfmkv.com , but they said this was post-body shop.. some say there are holes in the door under the trim, others say no holes.. can anyone confirm either
