You should see my car. If I were to do it over again I would have got the invisible bumper and full hood overlay. Dr. Color Chip touchup paint helped fix the really bad ones.

Front Bumper looks good... my stock front has 5 years of daily driving on it I'm due for a replacement with fresh paint as well.

Clear bra will save you money in the long run. If your clear bra gets ugly, you can simply replace it with fresh paint underneath.

I had to have my bumper repainted awhile back and the shop told me the problem with these cars is they're so low to the ground every little pebble that cars kick up hit the front end. He told me if I back off a couple car lengths I can eliminate 99% of chips. I took his advice, and 6 months later my bumper is still flawless!

Looks awesome, the overlay looks great. Do the chrome trim and it'll look sick.

I have a 3M VentureShield paint protection package (full hood) on my car and no rock chips after one year. I just scraped the side of the front bumper going into my garage, and with the film replaced, there is no visible damage.
