Would love to hear some opinions on the BSM...

On the one hand, if it saves you from ONE DING, it's payed for itself!!

on the other hand....

Looks like crap and won't protect you much anyway!!!

Opinions??[thumbup]or[thumbdn]

I like the way the car looks better without it... but mine came with it so I didn't really have a choice. unless I wanted to wait another 3 months!

Maybe you could "De-Badge" the BSM?? These are "glue-on" I believe...
Big risk with THIS paint!!!!

[thumbup] Maybe I'm the only one here, but I like it better with the moldings. Besides that I'm much more willing to park next to other cars now that I don't worry so much about dinging the sides.

Chose to go without the BSM because I like the clean look of the car without it. As far as dings are concerned I try to be as careful as possible but the reality is that no matter how careful we are some things are just out of our control.

As far as the dings - with cars and SUVs of all different door heights, the door point of the offending vehicle will probably not line up with the BSM - and besides BSM do chip paint. I kinda like the way they look, but I also like the G looks w/out it. Just a personal choice - I'd caution anyone with White or Black, that it has been my experience that Nissans BSM in these colors tend to fade over time - maybe, may not be true for the G, not sure.

Yeah...I'm gonna save the $120 on the BSM, and just keep the # for "Dentbusters" handy...

The day's coming...all you can do is try to put it off as far as you can....[bigmouth]

good choice... if you don't already have BSM installed, don't bother. It probably does more to protect OTHER's cars when you open YOUR door, because jarrett makes a very good point. what's the likelihood someone else's door is gonna line up perfectly with the roughly 2 inch height of the BSM?

Door Moldings

[thumbup] Maybe I'm the only one here, but I like it better with the moldings. Besides that I'm much more willing to park next to other cars now that I don't worry so much about dinging the sides.

I just purchased them myself today and I think they look awesome, I also have the mud rear and front moldings it really completes the car... but then again I am woman amongs all you men :)
