WWYD??!! (Bra content)

Now that you are here expecting bra's and boobies, let's talk about car protection, ie clear bra.

Should I get:
1) Full Front ( bumper, full hood, full fenders)- astronomical cost- can't wax it? It will age eventually and look terrible IMO all faded/scratched
2) Full bumper, part hood, part fenders - When it fades/scratches, the hood looks horrible- impossible to remove/re apply without damaging paint, annoying white wax line reminder.
3) Full bumper only- The M5 is flat like a brick, main spot the protection is needed- eventually, good will need to be re-sprayed again.

PS- My car's 3m was just removed and the old stuff looked terrible after years of abuse.
What Would You Do Max Members???

I'd do the full hood if you can. I think partial fenders are okay.

Mine got the partial hood/fenders by the PO. He also did the full cf roof and full sideskirts. I would have traded the full roof and got the full hood instead.

I would just use Dr. Colourchip everytime a nick presented itself. Like you said the bras look terrible after a couple years.

No close ups, but it looked terrible...faded, scratched to shit, some (minor) cracking starting. A shop did it during the paint re-fresh.

I have had mine on my car for 6 years now and it still looks great, no scratches or cracking. A very small amount of yellowing is noticeable as I have a white car.
Look into venture shield - not all paint protection films are created equal.

I had bumper only clear paint protection film on my E46 after I resprayed the bumper. It took 25,000km of hard driving and paid itself off numerous times. Zero chips or wear. Best investment I made with respect to paint protection. On the E39, I plan on doing the entire bumper as well. I'm not a fan of partially covering the hood/fenders.
