I'm told BMW's have very soft paint. I'm thinking of having clear bra 3M applied to front bumber and hood.
If after 3-5 years I remove the clear bra 3m film, will I also be pealing off the paint?

From what I remember from the meet there, the chappy's at Autobright said BMW's have particularly thick paint, and it's also quite hard too unless my memory fails me (which it does, regularly).

no you won't peel the paint off. You can use a hairdryer to soften the adhesive as well when you're ready to remove it.

Thick paint chips easier than paint just the right thickness. Therefore I bet they have just the right thickness of paint

Good question.

Soft paint / hard paint - makes no difference when stones hit you on the motorway! I would also like to know if anyone is using a Clear Bra as I'm thinking the same thing as Scubalaw. Repainting a front bumper is one thing - painting a bonnet is an altogether different nightmare!

has anyone seen a clear bra on a car? Can you see the difference where the bra is located?

Thanks,
Tim

use to have it on my audi a3 . front bumper, side skirts, bonnet edge . yes it is visible but on the other hand you know what it is ,so it doesnt bother you like a stone chip or scratch would . very good stuff just make sure you get the soft plastic stuff ,easier to fit and mold .

BMW has hard paint.

Some newer bmw's have a protective coating also on top.

Bitch to prep for paint!

The paint won't be an issue here my friend but watch out for fading and scratches around where the straps are.
