i had it on my 02 reg laguna but only on the fixed trim piece to the rear of the handle. They were all splitting at the rear edge, but one peeled off badly in a couple of places. Was annoying but the car was 7 years old so accepted it.

Now my current laguna has the same problem and its not even 2 years old!

Will be trying to get it done under warranty but i'm sure they will come up with some stupid reason why its not their fault.

On my old car i cut the flaking pieces back to a straight line where it was solidly fixed and then masked up to the line and touched it up with some model makers silver enamel paint. It wasn't perfect but it stopped further peeling and looked much better than bare plastic.
