I self-installed edge guards I bought on Amazon, and there have been no problems in over a year. The installation was straightforward.

Just got an outback! Was looking for the same thing. What size did you end up getting and how's the clear?

nice. but just to clarify, wondering if you went with the 36 or 48 inch. is the clear color good for you?

What is the purpose of those door edge guards other than to keep the paint on the edge of your door from chipping when hitting another object?

Two-fold. To protect the paint on your car if you open it into a shelf (garage) or if it opens into another car. It might not prevent a dent in the other guy's car but at least there shouldn't be any paint transfer and scratches.

Got the 16ft. and cut to fit...actually had quite about 4 ft. left over. As I previously said the clear matched the underlying car's color perfectly.
