I'm a big fan of clear bras. I put one on my wagon after its first repaint started to chip within a few months. And I put one on my newly painted Golf. Not cheap, but cheaper than a repaint.

I put clear bras on both of my Mk6's the day after I bought them. Both have taken significant rock hits to the hood, but neither have suffered paint damage. I can see several spots on my clear bras where the bra is chipped away by something big, but the paint is unscathed. The installer guarantees his work and would likely replace the damaged material at no cost. But I'm not going to bother with it since my cars will likely go back to VW.

When I get my GTI, I'll likely arrange to drive it straight from the dealer to the 3M bra installer to minimize any exposure on the road. As Peter said, it's not cheap, but it's a great investment in paint protection.

Soo frustrated with photos ... I have to repost them after a few days and the second time they seem to stay on !! I use google photos ... before I used Picasa Web and never had any issues ... May try a different hosting site.. Now trying flickr

Anyways I totally botched up the Plastidip bra application.. . I was trying to do like this guy shows in this vid...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIqCER7kTqM spent all of Sunday working to pre the car and then the plasti dip spray bottle started spitting instead of spraying towards the end of the first can... was not able to put the 5 layers as called for and created a total mess..

Spent the next 3 hours trying to get the stuff off

Once it was all removed except on the emblems
