Yeah thats the only thing that stopped me taking it off. As the seemingless insignificant black strip moulding probably stops a lot of the more Serious Carpark Phantom Door-dings. That some of seem to acquire unwantingly!

heat it up first. hair dryer or boiling water, after you pull it off you will most likely spend the next 6 hours peeling the residue off its a pain in the a**, i replaced my black ones with red ones look sgood IMO 8-)
