I had just the hood bra on my sebring. I never ever had any problems with fading or color difference. As long as you take it off EVERYTIME you wash your car, it will be fine.

to hold up car knockers?

Seriously, the paint on the front end of my SSE is forever ruined due to a car bra. I hate them.

AIn my case it was cheaper than repainting the hood due to the 2000+ blistering problems of GM. I was under there all the time, clean it ans never has it caused any damage over the 2 years it'* been there. Also helps so the blister doesn't get any worse.

Exactly Brian. If you take care of them and do proper cleaning, you will have no problems from using the bra.

I use one for long trips, and keep it clean for the most part. It really helps, and does not screw up the paint.

You have a better chance of ruining your paint while driving through Michigan freeways during the winter without any protection.

If I am going to be on the freeway for hours on end, I put it on.
