Same thoughts here. I just repainted the front end of my S4 (trips in the
winter over the mountains here in Oregon resulted in 50-100 chips) and
looked at both clear Bra and StonGard installations on a variety of cars.
You see holes in the material which looks as bad as a rock chip and the
edges look horrible. You can replace the damaged parts but it is expensive.
Dirt accumulates along the edges and looks especially bad on lighter colors.
Even on a black car the edges were very noticeable. I'm going to get a
Colgan or similar bra too to put on when necessary.
