Default %^&#([email protected]*&^%$&$# . ROCKS!!!

The side air intake scoops are just rock magnets!!! Tiny rocks get lodged in there! I know there is no way to stop the rocks from going in there, but is there a easy way to get the tiny ones that get stuck out?

I just say no to gravel roads.

But srsly, what other rock damage do you have? Is that it? I guess it’s fortuitous that it’s made of plastic...

Just slowly wedged a few of those out of my car with the smallest screw driver from an eyeglass screw driver set.

Same here. I've got the same gap. I checked a few other GT3RS.2 and they had the same gap.

I was just caulking around the MBR shower with clear silicone ... I thought maybe I'd put a small bead along the lower edge of the intakes to fill the gap. It also comes in black, and that would likely be better than clear.

I too use a vacuum, and it works well for removing all the grit. Removing it manually runs the risk of scratching the plastic and pushing the grit further in.
