The ends of the bristles have been soften; it works good
Same here, works great and doesn't scratch, although I've only used it a handful of times since my car is parked indoors at home and at work.

and guys, please brush the entire car. snow flying off your car hits the car behind you and causes visibility problems. not cool.

A detail in the fall, and then another one in the spring; I'm not worried. Safety take priority.

Same here. I actually use two brushes on occasion; one with stiffer bristles to move the top layer of heavy snow, then this one for whatever is left over closer to the body.
