And after awhile if you have accumulated lots of rock chips, you can always repaint the front and have a brand new fresh paint. Costs comparable or slightly more than the clearbra with prof. Installation but I don't think it's an enormous amount of money for a 7series owner..
Just my .99 euro cents
i totally agree with you, to each their own but,
It is not only about 7 series, i think if you have another daily driven car which you dont want to spend that much money, at the same time you dont want it too look bad since you are a car enthusiast, this is an alternative. offcourse if you have a 7 series or any 100k car vinyl is not expensive, even my 7 has it. but for my c class and accord i dont wanna spend $700 each so i thought this was a good option for DIYers. repainting bumpers is kind of timestaking and impractical if you can protect it before anything happens IMO

My tint guy (does great work) will clear bra the nose of the 750 for $295.

But good point, the spray may be an option for my other seldom driven cars at the right price. In fact, why not spray other parts of the car? My old e36 has picked up various nicks and scratches over the year, especially on the doors near the handles and the rear bumper.

yea you can just do rocker pannel, mirrors, rear bumper or edges of the bumpers . since its a spray you can just about do it anywhere with decent skills. I did my accord grill because i drive so long every day the chrome pretty much got sand blasted, my friend even did his wheels. so for applications like that i feel its good.

Here You go, I will have the peel off video soon

Ok, its a spray on - cool idea. But dont you need to spray a LOT of it to really make it protective against rocks, etc. It has to be thick enough to protect it. I bet you need a lot of cans. I wonder it it comes off as easy with many coats.
