Never seen these Garry, it is usual that the rear of all 4 arches have Armorfend fitted to protect them from stones flying off the tyres, you can also have this fitted to the sills, however, it is not usually required to the sill area on a F430 due to the design.

As youll doubtless know already, Astons have a different side profile and kick up stones to the rear haunches, hence they offer stone guards to reduce the risk of stone chips to that area & I agree they are a necessity for any Aston, however, they are not made or needed on a F430 as they have a different side profile and I can honestly state that in the 3 years I have owned this model I have never suffered a stone chip along the sill or rear haunch areas, so I wouldn't worry about it.

There is supposed to be Armorfend as standard to these areas also Garry, if there is not these are available from your dealer as a replacement part, alternatively if you have a Paintshop or a Armorfend type supplier locally they could doubtless supply as required. Good luck.
