Default Anyone have any experience with paint protectant film?

I saw an ad on tv the other night for this type of product. The two front runners are Aeroguard and 3M Scotchgard. Both are sold on this site: http://www.clearmask.com/index_v2.html

I was wondering if anyone has seen this used or applied it themselves. Results good or bad would be appreciated. Looks like a much better product than the traditional Bra... Thoughts?

it looks like it would work, and the 3M brand name helps a lot...

but its really expensive, not so bad for my car ($70.00), but for yours ($250-400)

I added it up for the full dressed kit and I came up with more than $600 with the headlights, hood, grill, a pillar and rear bumper. The online info makes it look fairly easy to install, kind of like installing window tint. Since I do so much interstate driving and we have so many bugs here in Florida it may be just the thing to protect the paint without having a bra grinding the sand into the clear coat. I'm going to order a strip and cut it myself to act as rock guards on my Silverado...if it works and I don't get any negative responses or reviews I may go for it on my GXP.

i wonder if it would come off in the rain, or if some was walking by your car and noticed the plastic wrap on the front
