Does anybody else's Adam have what appears to like grime seeping out of the door sills? I took my car to be washed today and its sparkling apart from this horrible streak.

I apologise the image is huge no idea how to make it smaller. I am tempted to take it back to Vauxhall, This is straight after I have been through the carwash believe it or not! Looks so unsightly!

This is very common and does lessen as the car gets older, it's suspected on other threads that it's internal wax protection

Yes, and it doesn't seem to lessen over time...........Even worse on White My Fire paintwork. If you get low down and look at the bottom of your open doors, you'll find two small outlets on each door. I haven't tried blocking them or anything but a good rub with some tar remover paint treatment gets the marks off - temporarily!

Oh Brill, does Halfords sell that stuff. I might try and pop there tomorrow. I don't want it damaging the already fragile paintwork!

I don't get it as bad as this, only a patch about like 5cm on the ledge which gets covered by the door when it's closed.... I think there's a hole in the bottom of the door as like a if any water some how gets inside the door it leaves via that hole, if there's still anything left from the manufacturing that might have still been in there it's the water like dissolving it and coming through the hole, drying on the ledge and sills......it then gets lesser as the car gets older because the gunk has worked it's way through and there's nothing to make the mark
