    Well, just as I posted that, the bonnet bra people got in touch with me and emailed a picture of a green E36..



    Apart from the eyebrows *roll eyes* .. I genuinely don't think it looks as bad as I thought it would..

    Thats the fella from Turkey. I don't think it looks too bad. Its something different and protects your car. But as said earlier in the thread that bonnet bra's can hold water and cause paint damage and marring of the paint. Not a 100% good idea to stop stone chips and everyday use, but its a good mod

    How invisible is that armourfend?

    If you do get one, check out the U.S. prices first - they're in every 'Halfords' in the U.S, and even Walmart so likely to be miles cheaper than rip-off Britain?...
    Would appear so having looked at both diagrams, that's were the major ones have appeared on mine so it would appear they put a little thought into it;

    Bonnet bra from the company who sent me that picture is 65.00, by the time you pay shipping / custom charges if it's pulled it would probably come to more..

    I'll give armourfend a ring at some point today and see how much they want.. I can imagine it's the fitting of it what will rocket the price up, can't imagine it's a quick job getting it completely bubble free and invisible..

    well if you just use it for driving and take it off when you aren't driving... I see them as being very useful. I am getting one when I have the front re-sprayed. I know it will do good in the long run. I don't think they look good and I know they have a nasty effect on the paint but for the deflection of stone chips when driving to shows or any where. Wroth it in my eyes

    I hate bonnet bra's with a passion..

    Someone I work with has got a lovely Mk5 Golf GTI and they've totally ruined it with a bonnet bra..

    As with everything though its down to personal preference.. I mean some people obviously think this type of thing looks good:

    E46 325ti Sport
    Lowered 50/40 on Weitec springs
    18" staggered BBS RS-GTs

    Pioneer MVH-8200
    Focal Polyglass 5.25" 130VB components
    Alpine MRP-M650 Monoblock with Alpine Type R 10"
