Underbody trays such as those on golfdave thread on mk7 forum are worth considering as further protection from stones etc.

My car is coming up 6.5 years old so I thought I’ll give the underbody a jet wash and a couple of coats of dynax uc (keep the rust at bay on the subframes and suspension)

To be fair I should have done  a before picture , it looked a lot worser with crusty bits all over in including the shocks. And the rear subframe arms were at least 3x worse at the front than the back . The dynax uc turns most of the rust to a darker colour .

That's the benefit of the rear suspension plastic aero covers. They protect the front of the arms.
