I just noticed that most if not all '6 cars that I've seen pics of have door protectors/guards/whatevers on them. I hate these with a passion. Are these dealer-installed, port-installed, etc? Can I order a car without them or would I have to get them removed later?

thanks,

Note the protectors on the doors, halfway down the doors vertically. I hate those. They're fugly and don't do enough to justify their presence.

So they're not drilled in? They're just applied like badges? That would be nice...

thanks,

on a plus side they are painted the color of the car, on my car they are a plasticy dark grey color. I've seen them shaved before but like everything else in life it comes with a price.

I wouldn't take it off. I had an Honda Accord before without it and got some scrathes because of twit people that doesn't care when they open their doors in the parking lot. Since that car, I started to buy cars with it...

My point exactly. Unless they run the entire vertical height of the door, how are they likely to be *precisely* where they're needed to protect the door? It's just a silly assumption that they will be. I'd rather not have them at all than have them for the 1% chance that they'll protect the door in the other 10% chance that someone would swing their door open on you.

Just park intelligently.
