    was only kidding, they look pretty kool tho, my concern would be, does it effect the paint finish after awhile, ie faded?

    would be more than £200, you have the bumper and the bonnet, the bonnet would be £150 alone (min- just had a quote!) then the front edges of the wings get peppered as well...

    Also once you have a respray, because of the enforced water content in paint these days (therefore its very very soft) that even with the slow baking process the stone chips will occur again but a lot quicker than with the factory finish...

    With my car being black, i dont think a bra would look that bad...certainly worth keeping the car as good as new rather than spend £3 - £400 every year on keeping it pristine with resprays...

    Surely a black bra on your car would make it look like a banana thats been in the fruit bowl a little too long??

    Armourfend, is that like a tough, but invisible plastic layer that just sticks onto the car body? The same guy who did my tints has got something similar done to his car, and I'm def thinking about getting it done on a few places on mine (with motorway driving it makes all the difference.

    there's a thread on here somewhere, glen (ess_three) got it on his porsche, sure he'll be along to tell you, or you could try doing a search for Armourfend - think it's in the title.

    I think its about £300. I've seen it on a couple of cars and its very discreet. If they done have a template for your car, they will do it as a one off as their HQ for you. I enquired when i fitted the RS bumper, but had a couple of stone hips on it already so thought there wasnt much point for the time being. Its worth doing though.

    i think the black car-bras look daft. why spend loads on mods or flash cars to cover them up? sure, for protection, but seriously, unless u often drive on gravel i doubt u'll get too many stonechips.

    then again, if that film stuff works & doesn't ruin the look of the car, it might be worth a go.

    Yeah I've got the prices and I think I will be getting the whole car done, but I've got my car booked in at the bodyshop to get the front bumper altered. So I don't want to have it applied before that is done.

    Will get it done sometime towards the end of November I would imagine.

    Getting the number plate recess fully smoothed out and smoothed into bumper as I am not happy with it at the moment.

    It was supposed to be smoothed, but I think the wrong end of the stick was taken from the Photoshop I produced for the body shop.

    Oh well it will sorted soon /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    That will look good mate. Get a small plate to replace it with and it will look sweet! Going to get mine smoothed .etc sometime. Remove washer covers, have the cut outs for the intercooler pipework built up and smoothed in to make it look proper .etc

    I like the look your achieving. All subtle, but all good.

    I hasn't got a plate on the front at the moment it's in the front window! It has been smoothed, but not how I wanted it. Will be flat and part of the bumper soon /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
