No no no... Bras are so late 80s. I'm actually surprised they still sell.

But for limited funds, bra is your best bet for protection. If you go this route, I would (1) buy high a quality bra (poor quality will scratch your paint (2) take it off when it rains (if it does get wait, don't let it dry on your car).

I used to have a front end bra back in the early 90s. :lol:

With ISs weak paint, a front end mask is a solid investment.

Colgan Custom can not be beat in their quality. It makes the car look more agressive too. They also have matching mirror covers.

You're welcome.

look rice???? how about look dumb....not a fan. I don't get the point of them. I understand that you want to keep your car looking nice, but you cover up the paint to do that. So why does it matter if it is nice or not...you will never see it (except those who lease and want to maintain resale value). I would rather look at a chipped sleek hood then a dumb bra. At least with the chipped hood I can repair it. Plus too many people have had scratches and paint fade with bras on. If anything look at xpel or other clear protectants.

Keep looking at your hood chipping up until it "fades" into a big white chip, and I'll be looking at a nice car bra protecting it. :lol:

You can easily and cleanly repair chips. Like I said to each his own.

I made the mistake of getting a bra for my GTI. It would not stay on the hood while driving at speed. At about 70...the center of it would lift off the hood and flap. Not to mention...the hair line scratches it made.

DO NOT suggest you get a bra. I like the painters tape idea for trips :)

i say just get some saran wraps and wrap your whole car with it (at least 4 to 5 layers)...remember to leave a cut in the door so you can open it

That is because you purchased a low quality product. :roll:
