    Did you remove the Porsche exterior side protection film

    My 997 importer delivered my 997 with a transparent protective film between the doors and rear wheel. They refused to remove it stating that it is intended to protect the exterior paint against stone chips.

    Do you agree with the importer's advice?

    Re: Did you remove the Porsche exterior side protection film

    Yes, the 993 had the same protection film.

    Re: Did you remove the Porsche exterior side protection film

    i had it removed and replaced with superior quality 3m film with more coverage and only 1 exposed seam.

    Re: Did you remove the Porsche exterior side protection film

    They all come that way, from the factory. It's SUPPOSED to be there. If you remove it, the paint in that area will quickly be destroyed by rock chips and sand-blasting...

    Yes, absolutely.

    Removing it represents a lapse in rational thinking.

    Thanks to all who responded...gotta go with the flow

    Re: Did you remove the Porsche exterior side protection film

    To prevent the film from aging (yellowing) prematurely be sure to not miss appying your favorite wax/zaino/rejex etc. when detailing your car

    Removing it will cancel your entire drivetrain warranty. (Read the fine print).
