    I had a 3M bra put on my car when I bought my car 9 years ago. I just had the front part of the hood done. I'll dig out some pics and post.

    Everyone I know with this system swear by it. Much cheaper to have it removed and reaplied as needed than to refinish a hood. Just be aware that when you wax, it tends to collect where the film ends and the paint begins. Not a huge issue, particularly on a white car, but something to mind when waxing.

    I have it on my black GTi... When it's clean you can barely see it. Make sure you get the 3M stuff. Our installer is a buddy of mine and he's very good. He uses a roll of material, not the pre-cut. Much better finished look. IMO

    the clear bras work really well, but i really don't recommend it on a white car. I've seen them get discoloured and turn yellowish. It does this regardless of the colour of your car but it's most noticeable on white cars.

    So I finally picked up my car and had to post a follow up. I went with Marco at Advanced Mobile Group. He drove to the dealer and installed the kit yesterday before i took delivery. I am very happy with the work. Unless you were right up on the car, you could not notice the bra. I wish I was there to see him work, but from the comments i received from the mechanics on the shop floor, Marco was very professional and many were amazed with his work.

    I dont usually promote any services, but in the case of Marco at Advanced Mobile Group, Any body looking at getting this king of work done should look him up.
