If you like the bra-ed look *shutter to think* you'd be better off having a black vinyl wrap applied in the shape of one.

Bras were supposed to protect the front from road debris, thus keeping the vehicle's finish nice and retaining resale value. What they actually did was trap dirt under them, which wore away the paint.

There are several companies on the market today that offer thick clear vinyl kits that protect the finish. 3M stuff is the best though.
