    yes. there is hell lot of dust on the places which you mentioned. this happens as the rubber beading is behind the wheel arc point. in some cars the beading seals the wheel arcs. so you wont find dust there.

    i too get fed up cleaning it regularly.

    Oh so this is a common annoying occurance.

    Also i have noticed slight discoloration at some points where the door really kisses the body shell. My car being Medium Grey these are streaks of whitish silver at multiple places.

    Could it be cause of the alignment of the door ?

    This is more visible in the darker colors of the car.

    Shall try to post the pics

    Same with me ... Got huge scratches on the inner wheel arches ... Due to huge screw on the door ....
    Clearly misalignment of the door ... However only on one side ....

    man you shoud rectify this immediately. door misalingment causes scratches. it will peel of paint and then the portion with start rusting.

    Idea for Replacing Stolen Logos

    HI Guys ,

    Saw this picture in the post by aniket in the alloys thred . He got these monograms printed for his alloys I guess . I have been watching a lot of FIATs with logos missing and I guess this theft trend just seems to be growing and no matter how safe we play the logos will get stolen one day or the other . You'll all admit that the logos are pretty pricey and replacing them again and again just to have them stolen again is quiet frustrating . I would request aniket or Grandeur to find out from the sticker vendors if this idea can be materialized and what would be the cost incurred if we all order in bulk .

    We can have the fiat logos printed jus like these monograms and that too in colours so as to resemble the original logos . What do you guys think ?[attachment=0:2mzfwcxi]DSC026500001.JPG[/attachment:2mzfwcxi]
