    A "clear bra" or a "fabric" bra? Most have shed the old style black vinyl ones for some Paint Protection Film by firms such as 3m. Sleeker. Doesn't damage the paint.

    I did Xpel/Ventureshield on my previous car which went 9 years without any major issues. It does require work to keep clean, but well worth it IMHO. I had one installed on the Civic as well. So far, no problems after 45K.

    I thought the 3M's still had to be removed after about 5 years? Some people said it seized into the paint after 3-4 years. I remember the clear bra's back in the day only lasted a year and any longer than that, it would tear off the clear coat and sometimes the paint too.

    I thought long and hard about this and decided to just do a ceramic coat myself and just maintain that.
