dlittle, here's my take on it I have over 30000 real-world miles on my '14 Z51, and I do not have any protective film at all. This includes narrow 2-lane paved farm roads to 8-lane interstates,...

Bulos, you are absolutely correct - it gets quite cold here in the winter (zero and sometimes below!) and we can get a lot of snow. Last year the Stingray was my daily driver, and had to get around...
