I've got a small hood guard on mine, it has kept my
rock chips down to a minimum.  Judging by the way the
paint, what's left of it, looks on the trim piece
below my headlights, its doing a pretty good job.  If
I take it off my paint looks perfect, except for the
spot where some A@#hole keyed my hood, just another
reason to have it on there.  Some Stonegard would have
the same effect.  As for the seat covers, yea they
look like crap, but my car had them it's entire life
before I got it.  One of the reasons I bought it, the
seats were brand new, and the car was far from rusty.
I must admit that I tore the seat covers off 30 min
after I picked the car up and never looked back.
