Mud/Rock flaps for the 1 series?

Has anyone considered whether or not the width of the tires will cause paint damage on the front of the rocker panels and behind the rear wheels over time? Flaps look so tacky, is there another possible solution?

Maybe 3M will make some of that clear film paint protection stuff like they do for the Porsche models. Mud flaps not only look bad but they in most cases don't help either.
