Crappy clear bra; already peeling

2 months old. $599 @ the dealer. Here's what it looks like now. I know they'll do right by me, it's an awesome dealership, but should I have them re-do it or just strip it off and get my $ back????

Ouch! It looks like Saran Wrap. Have you spoken with your dealer yet? Maybe they got some defective product from a vendor.

I'd be interested in hearing what they had to say before demanding your cash back.

Good Luck

Get your money back...ask for a professional installer if it wasn't. Did you watch it being done. Just had mine done last week, $615. Expel Extreme! 4 hour process

Get your money back on that install - then. Find a reputable 3m installer. That film currently installed Is waaaaaaaaaay to thin the do any good.

Installed by dealer? Should be removed and re-applied at dealer expense.
I have a clear bra on my Camaro, ten months later no issues.

14 months here and many many hits from debris and still looks good. As already suggested its the installer who messed this up, have them redo it.

I am an installer and I can tell you they did not heat seal the ges down. Does not look like a good install at all. The film is fine as far as thickness... thicker is not better and not sure why the other guy posted that. The problem is with the install itself. I would take it in and watch them remove it and install another one. If you drop it off I bet the company that did the install... dealerships do not do this, they contract it out... will just trim the lifting film off. Make sure its done right. If you watch them install the film and they dont take a heat gun to the edges and seal them down you will have the same problems in the future.
