I notice road film on my Element doors within a day or two of washing while the rest of my "E" still looks clean. I even have splash guards.
The side steps seem to stick out from the body a little. Does anyone out there who has side steps notice thier doors staying clean longer due to the steps catching some of the dirt.
Thanks

I doubt they help at all. Incidentally, I have the splash guards too, and having gone 2 months prior to installing them - they do work. The dirt would be much worse without them.

Best thing you can do is wash & wax your car with an acrylic sealer, which will spray clean. This makes weekend washes easier and keeps the E looking spiffy all week with minimal effort. More in the detailing forum...

They catch much of what would otherwise splash onto the doors. Recently spent several days at the state fair and driving through the parking lot covered with many droppings from cows, horses, etc., I saw just how effective they really are! :(
