After you get the rock chips fixed, you may consider EXPEL:

...the car definetely picks up debris and throws it out beyond the wheelwells. I purchased rock chip, dent, wheel and tire protection from dealer. Maybe you can still get it if you didn't from the dealer? Just sayin...I don't have alot of gravel roads or rocks surfaces to contend with here in Jersey, I'm sure it's a real issue elsewhere.

I didn't get offered that at purchase.. But I'll ask.. Thinking I might have to change the bumper chips are pretty bad.. And there's chip all in the windshield and headlights.. Smh

comprehensive insurance will usually cover the damage from things like "rock storms" etc.

I bought a paint kit from Dr Chip and had the guy who installed my clear bra touch it up before install.

A clear bra is the only solution for paint chips, at this point however you will probably have to repaint then slap the clear bra on.

I put a clear bra on all my cars, I didnt even drive my Z before I had it on, since I got it ona saturday I had to wait til next monday. But now I;m rock chip free.
