I am thinking of buying some side rubbing strips for my white Stepway. I am amazed that they are not included as standard. There are some adhesive ones available online. I checked with Dacia to make sure that they won't affect the paintwork warranty. I was told by Dacia head office that the warranty will only be affected if the adhesive substance supplied with the strips is the cause of damage. Presumably the same would apply if I bought door sill protectors too. Whereabouts on the doors is the best place for the rubbing strips? Do the black sill and wheel arch extensions offer any protection from careless door-openers? Are they enough to prevent damage without having to buy the rubbing strips?
