Next week I am getting rubber strips installed on my doors. It is the adhesive type and the accessory shop installing it said that it would be on for the life of my E. The strips I picked out are really kindof ugly but I think they will look great on. They are black rubber and about 3 inches wide and have these little grooves in it. It will really add a utilitarian flair to the style of the vehicle, which was my attraction to begin with. I'll take some pics after its installed.
