In Colorado we have a few bugs. Our biggest ding culprit is sand (gravel) on our winter roads. I use a clear bra on the front portion of the hood, back of the mirrors, and headlights. According to the dealer it helps with dings on metal. The plastic on the bumpers seems to be reasonably immune to gravel damage. Having had the clear bra on four cars now. i agree with the dealer. By the time I turn in the car for end of lease there always seems to be a paint chip on the upper part of the hood beyond the clear bra but without effect on lease return. My biggest problem is not paint chip but windshield chips.
