Truck Protection

I am thinking about having an invisible bra installed on the front portion of the hood and on the front lights of my 2015 2500 GMC truck. Has anyone had experience with invisible bras. I am concerned that the clear film may begin to peel off when I use a pressure wash, or if it will discolor with years of sun exposure. I have been quoted $595 to do the front portion of my hood (about 1/2 way back) and my front lights. The product is made by 3M and the installer has a good reputation and references. Does this sound like a reasonable price and does anyone on the forum have experience with the product? Any information about whether this product/treatment is worthwhile and whether the price that I have been quoted seems reasonable will be greatly appreciated.

Hi from AZ. . .my wife has one on her '08 XC 90, it's held up very well. Course, no pressure washing. The 1st install was not done well & 3 months later they had to replace it, so as usual, the installer is important.. . . the car is garage kept so no sun fade or discolor. . . .regards, Craig

I considered it and decided against. With all the yellowing comments in reviews, the cost is too high to redo every few years.

I put the smoked plastic front hood lip protector on mine. Works great, cheaper and easy to remove.
