get a simple door edge beading, these are similar to show beadings that run around the door. fit this at the furthest end of your door while opening and will go in a long way to protect the door edges from scraping.

the ones that run on the side might not really help unless they have an extended lip like iKON or else they door will eventually scrape.

Thanks for your reply. What you are advising is that instead of side beading, go for edge beading throughout the edge of the door ! Right.

But does it affect the door closure and its fitment. Sorry for ebing naive, but trying to understand with my available GREY cells

nope ram, just put a 1.5 or 2 inch bit at the furthest corner when opened. maruti vehicle usually come with a small bit, something similar bit 1/2 inch longer.

i have observed that most often we land up scrapping the bottom while opening to pavement et all compared to outside since generally we have vision and will be careful.

Jaggu,

At times cars in my company's parking lot are parked too close to each other, and there is a possibility that the adjacent car's door hits the door of your car when opened.

To prevent such a thing, wouldnt a door beading that runs across the length would be required?

Does anyone have any idea about body color door beading done for Swift in BLR? Like what we have for V-TEC ? I am planning for my swift silver . Can it be done outside like spray painting the beading and then sticking it up the doors ?

OT:

Saw a spiked bumper beading of a palio on airport road in BLR yesterday. Bumper beading was on the four corners of the vehicle and one can easily see steel spikes out of them. Wonder what will happen to the vehicle which nudges the palio. It was a TN regd vehicle.

Actually the bumper beadings are mostly used to hide scratches already caused on the bumper !

Restarting it again
My getz door beading came out when car hit the parking gate. I got this replace with Hyundai service guys. There were very minor scratch which went with rubbing compound . Felt the real use of it.I need to buy all 4 as it comes in set. Unfortunately same beading again came out and dropped somewhere.

Now again I need to shell our 600 + bucks to buy that set. Is there any place where I can get single beading.

These beading are made of plastic so come out easily.These are fixed with some hinges made in beading with some small screws etc.Earlier these were of rubber material and sticked through double sided tape. These don't come out with impact.
