Remove them, and yes there will most likely be bubbles, but you can take them out at a pro detailing shop later, it's better than leaving the moldings there for rust to have a party and really mess up your doors in the future.
take them off! you will love it!!!
What % of people dont have bubbles when they take them off?( it looks like most dont)
There where no bubbles on the back of the car at all...
I would like to do it but I have the same concerns...

BTW: those bubbles are not real big, there are more like small pits of paint being damaged, it's like touching 100 sand paper, not as many pits as sandpaper of course, but you get the picture. Buffing or a clay bar will take care of it.
NO, buffing or a clar bar will not take care of it.
I repeat. NOT.
I've been living with the bubbles for months (better part of a year, actually). Tried all of that. The paint is bubbled. If you're not careful, some of the bubbles will crack/chip, and leave a tiny dot of no-paint (ask Monty, I was showing him mine at the car show last weekend).
For some, the bubbles subside a bit... for others (such as myself, Monty, etc) they don't. DCX won't cover them under warranty.
I'm not trying to be a downer here. Just want you to know the bubbley truth. Also, if I recollect, it seems to affect those in warm/humid climates more (which only makes sense).
