147 Front Valance scraping...suggestions?
Hi I have a 7mth old 147 and I have noticed that the scraping sound at the front is infact the underside of the front valance/bumper assembly. I thought it was just the tray touching the bitumen on the street at my mothers place when I leave her driveway. But no it has scraped the paint off the underside down to the plastic.
The road has a large radius and the driveway has a slope (I wouldn't call it servere) so at the point tyres are in the gutter the front scraps.
If I posted pics you wouldn't believe how much it has worn away the paint. It is shocking
I intend to sand back with wet & dry and repaint. That's ok, but is there an aftermarket fix...like aluminium/steel facing or tough rubber profile that exists? I mentioned the age of the car so it isn't sagging springs and the car is standard (no suspension changes). I guess I'd like a type of sump guard but for my front valance so I can still drive in and pick up my elderly mum especially now it is winter.
