Anyone who drives on the highway knows how beat up the nose of a car will get. Every car I've had, had minimal "chips" everywhere else on the car, and the nose looked like it had been sandblasted. Pretty common for "snow country", due to the cities sanding the roads.I guess if I had the money buring a hole in my pocket I would get the clear bra, but in 5 years how many door dings and bumper/front end scrapes are you going to have? What about the rocks that hit the top of the car from lifted trucks 20 feet in the air? What about curb rash? I am just saying that if you want a car to look like new, keep it in the garage and if not unless you are selling in to make money or keeping it original, put a new paint job on it in 8+ years if you still have it with a supercharger and nos and anything else. How much more will a car be with with a good front end paint job and rock chips every where else? What about the quarter panels or side ground effects pieces under the doors? Just curious for other peoples opinion? It always seems like no matter how good, I took care of something, you could never totally protect it 100% and where there was no protection(door dings and parking right next to you when you park 5 miles from the entrance to the mall), someone else out there is ready to and will screw it up!
