I understand that the front of the car hits stuff first, but it's hardly the only part which will see wear and tear. And my word do they look dumb!!!! If they came on the car, like the splitter guards, almost fair enough to leave it on there...but intentionally spending money on them!?! My mind boggles. I'd rather have a rusty bonnet, and believe me when I say I don't like rust!

/end of OT, sorry. Had to rant.

He doesn't have a splitter...?
Bras do more harm than good in my experience. They may eliminate some stone chips, but when grit inevitably gets trapped between the bra and your paint, it's chafing the paint every second the car's in motion. The front of your car goes from high gloss, to semi-gloss, to eggshell, to flat.
