Default Dirty sills

I'm lovin' the S3 but one thing I noticed, the sills sure do dirty up easily. Any answer to this? Mud-flaps? :0

A vehicle coating will help shed some of that wet dirt, or spring for clear bra type protection.

I have had this problem since day 1. I have not found a way to stop it - seems like it is a design issue - just got to wipe/dry the sills after every rain storm & wash

+1 Ditto! And lighter colors (especially yellow) make it "worse" since its easier to see.
