3M paint it?

does anyone have 3M or similar paint protection on their front bumper/hood?

anyone find that it works, looks good, doesn't discolour, can be installed well?

i'm seriously considering getting this done...while the paint is still flawless

My car is covered in 3M film. Impressive product. Seems to be holding up well.

Here's an old thread with a picture (not that you can see it)

The 3M is great, now I get paint chips all around the 3M tape. When I finally scare up enough $ to repaint the front bumber, hood and rear fenders I'll pass on the hood but definetly use on the rear fenders. I've got quite a collection there.
