^^ Couldn't agree more. I just got my GS and won't take the car out for any significant drive until it gets a clear bra.To me, the protection it affords outweighs its unsightliness... my friend who just got a black 09 gallardo has the clear shield installed on the front and sides of his car all the way up to the window edge... with his installation, I don't even notice it until I'm about a foot away looking for the seam... I guess it depends on the kind of roads you travel most frequently and the speeds you are going... it would be a bummer to take the bra off and then get a rock chip on the front bumper driving down the freeway the following week....
^^So true! The quality of film and experience of the installer are key when considering this.I just had clear bra put on my Dads black Audi. In certain light you cant even tell there is a line in the middle of the hood. If it is installed right and it is the right film you should hardly even notice it. Clear bra keeps your paint on the front of you car from getting hammered. I put it on all of my new vehicles and I am not driving cars that cost over 100k. Just my opinion.
I just love this....only in an Italian car forum!
You either drive on very rural roads, or have been very lucky.Does anyone NOT have a clear bra that has NOT had any issues?
do you seem to only get issues when driving fast and do you feel that the maserati is just more prone to rock chips and what not compared to other cars?
The reason I ask and I realize its completely different... but I drive a range rover sport and i dont seem to get any rock chips... though i rarely get anywhere past 90 but i'll drive 85 quite a bit.... no such problems?
i guess my main question is... if your going to be driving 80 fastest do you really need a clearbra?
My wife drives an ML320 and has no chips on the hood....BUT, look at how high and parallel to the ground your rover and my wife's hood line is. The Masers are lower to the ground and in the direct firing line of rocks, sand, bugs, etc...I drive a range rover sport and i dont seem to get any rock chips
