I think it looks ok, especially if its the factory molding that is color matched...

I have done paintless dent removal done at least 3 times on my old BMW. Shop around for the best quality, not necessarily the best price. BTW, I have side moldings and color-keyed door edge guards on my OB. Side moldings also stiffen the door panels which may make the door sound more solid when closed.

Well oldtime, now you've cost me some $$$. I'm going to add the wheel arch moldings to my 3.6R Touring order (already have the BSM ordered). We were going back and forth on them, but after seeing your pics I managed to find some on a Touring in my specific color (green), and that sold the deal. For what I'm paying for the car, the moldings add only a small percentage!

Side molding strips help a little but not a lot. The strips are mounted to the car with an adhesive. Once they’re installed, they can’t be removed without causing paint damage if you should decide you don’t like them.

As what others have said about practicing ding prevention which is to put some thought into where you park:

Park in end spots.

Park within the parking space as far away as possible to the car parked next to you.

Park in the outer fringes of parking lots but do NOT hog up two parking spaces by parking diagonally across them. You might piss someone off if the lot fills up by denying them a parking space.

In my building’s parking garage, there’s a neighbor’s car parked adjacent to mine. I hang a couple of old bicycle tires on the outside rear view mirror just in case he’s careless or the door handle slips out his hand.

My parents used to own a Saturn which had impact resistant plastic body panels. This is the ultimate in ding and dent protection. I don’t know if in the future, auto plastic body panels will make a comeback.

They will come off just fine with fishing line and some patience. The 3m tape will come off as well. It would be a few hour process but there will be no paint damage if done the right way.
