Where can I find a leather front bumper cover for my 2001 BMW 540I?
Is there a more descriptive name for them?
How do you install them?

it's a bra or cover and they are ugly as sin.

I have one on my black car that just covers the nose of the hood, got it from summit racing for 30-40 bucks iirc. It's gotta go though- it was a temp. thing to cover up a dent that has worn out it's welcome.

I have one, its a hell of a lot easier to clean off a bra than clean off the front of my car in love bug season. :rolleyes:

It's also a reason why my 5 year old car has 0 rock chips in the front.

True, I did buy one for my corvette when we drove to Bowling Green.. They do help.

The clear bras are the way to go if you can afford them.

I need to buy a black one since Im trying to cover my front bumper. I scratched the bumper pretty bad and dont feel like replacing it anytime soon. How long can I leave the bra on the car consecutively?

You have to think about the dust and dirt that will get trapped under it and scratch/mar your paint. You can probably go a week, wash, week, wash, like that...
