Has anyone had their side skirts on their sports fallen off?
I can't believe they thought gluing them on was a good idea..
Has anyone gone back to the dealers to get a replacement and i wonder if they will come up with a better idea.. One side on my car is definetly coming loose. Very annoying!!

The big issue with glue is that not only do you have to use a very high quality glue (think of the temp differentials your car may experience and that glue must still be strong and somewhat pliable), but also that application is so critical...too much or too little and its going to fail.

Well you can add my car to the list, the drivers side rocker is coming loose by the LR wheel, just peeling away. My Smart Brabus did the same thing. Oh well off to the dealers we go.

I saw a misaligned one on a yellow sport, at the dealership. Rear section was off a little off. Take it in its, under warranty.

Plenty of body parts are held on with adhesive/tape; fender flares, spoilers, door trim, etc. It works great if you use quality stuff and prepare the surface properly. In my case it looks like they didn't, because there is a gap opening up at the corner of the drivers door. I'll call the dealer tomorrow and set up an appointment.
