I didn't put one on my 2013 that I picked up last July. I have regretted it ever since.

Had it installed before I picked up the car in August 2011 - I now can find 2 spots on the clear bra that would have been paint chips! Do it!

I had one for my 1LT. The cost is worth it if you want to keep the front from getting nicks and dings. Also I found it easy just to wipe down the front from bug guts with some detail spray and not worry about scratching the paint.

the new "talk of the town" in clearbra is the new self-healing from xpel. Lots of vette guys jumped all over this. I already have clear bra, and would of went with this if it was available 2 years ago.

By all means get it. Cheap insurance considering your investment. Make sure you get a good installer and a good product. if you were in Texas I'd hook you up with my guy Texas Venom on this site.

If you haven't already, consider getting film added to your A-pillars, mirror fronts, and gill areas. They take a lot of rock hits as well.
