    991 Turbo S stone chips

    Hi to all,

    How you guys are dealing with stone chips on your car? My car is only 2 months old (991 turbo S), white color and after 2500km I already have 1 stone chip on the front hood and several chips on rear arches, looks like this car is pulling stones like magnet :)


    Re: 991 Turbo S stone chips

    IMO all cars on today's crappy roads need plastic film to protect the front side finishes, especially a 911.  Or budget for a re-paint after several years....

    Prefer the (partial) respray.....those plastic films make cars looks so cheap after a while when it gets a bit stained/dirty.

    Doesn't plastic film on white paint turn yellow after sometime or is that fixed with the latest films? This was the reason I didn't get my car (white TTS) covered.

    This is old advice for the very early 3M films.... New ones much better.  But even if your film is a bit tarnished after 4-5 years it's much cheaper to replace it than repaint.  For many they won't own their cars this long anyways.
