I am planning on having the 3M Clear Bra installed. The dealer does it for 1399.00 USD. Seems expensive, but sounds awesome- It is made from 300 individual strips of material that are overlaid and molded for the exact shape of the car, covering the entire front and and side-view mirrors. Resistant to yellowing and damage. Anyone get one? Does this cost seem appropriate? I did not think it would be that expensive.


**Whoops- this thread should have gone in "Accessories". Can an administrator move it?**

The shop I worked at did them. I had him put one on my last car and I constantly wished I didn't do it. Any bird poop and water stains the material and eventually it gets a not clear haze to it. Then when you have it taken off you can see the difference in the paint. I hate rock chips, but I'd rather have them than what I had after the clear bra.

Was it the 3M type? Years ago I had a car with one that developed a haze, but I had bought the car with it in place (used), and I assumed that it was not a high quality bra.

Got mine last night. Looks great. Done by a certified 3m specialist. My hood already had 3 dings on it that I never noticed. The bra makes sense to protect the remainder.

My is white and you can't tell its on at all..

Yes, I'm getting better quotes from private places... Good suggestion.

I think I am going to skip the bra afterall: The Evoque is going to be white, and I think the edges will be too obvious. Also, Chips would be obvious on a dark colored car, but one of the reasons I am getting white is the less obvious appearance of the chips on a white car. I guess there's risk either way-

A Clear Bra is a great investment. You should get the full front done for around $1200. I would not recommend 3M ecspecially on a white vehicle(to much orange peel) I have venture shield on my black cayenne and it looks amazing(wish i had the entire car wrapped) As long as you take care of the bra as you would normal paint they will last a good 10 yrs and the best thing about them is that it makes cleaning, ecspecially bugs a piece of cake.

What brand did you get? I have been really thinking about this to protect the front end. My Evoque is white also.

Thanks to "ghannan" I looked closely at my 3M installed and it does look a little orange but not that bad..You really have to look at it very closely to see the difference...I can deal with it...

Sorry myevoque, hopefully we haven't made you notice a detail you wouldn't have otherwise noticed!!!

Are people doing the whole hood, or just the front part? If I do it, I'm thinking of doing the whole hood to avoid seeing a "seam".

dealerships are expensive I just did mine. Do it privetely it will be less expensive, i paid $375 ;), im in Denver.
Where in Denver, I'm in Thornton. Make sure the company that does the Clear Bra takes off the Ranger Rover badging and puts it under that. If not it can cause rust build up. My friend does all the Range Rovers for Flat Irons Dealership.

I live in Thornton also, 120th and Holly...The company that did it was afraid of removing the letters, they cut around it. I got my Evoque from Flat Irons but the sales man there quote me $1000, CRAZY!!!

Update:

I went to a highly recommended guy today for a quote: 1100 for Ventureshield, including the entire hood. I refuse to have the obvious line across the hood from a partial.

Problem is, you have to remove any bugs or bird excrement from 3M or Ventureshield immediately or it will be discolored. Another option is Xpel, which is more scratch resistant and more stain resistant. I know I am not going to wash this (or any car) daily, so if I was going to do anything, I would go with Xpel. It is more expensive ($1300), and add $160 for new "RANGE ROVER" badging in the front to replace what's there- they say you cannot replace the original lettering and expect it to hold up. So I am undecided, but leaning towards not doing anything at all. As I said, that is one reason I went with a white car- less obvious scratches/dings from rocks.
