Has anyone had this applied to their IS-F? Are there any disadvantages to having it applied namely to the car's front end?

I saw one on a 09 USB in the showroom. You can see where the 3m layer stops (barely), but that's probably better than rock chips all over the front end. After a while the clear layer will show chips and such but it'll save the paint over the long haul.

I had it on my 04 TL for nearly 5 years and couldn't be happier. I didn't try and remove it, but the paint underneath looked factory fresh the day I traded it in for my F.

I had mine applied @ the dealer a week after I picked up the car. I did not know they offered until I got there or else it would have been on @ delivery. So far so good.

Hey Rasputin,

I did a lot of research into the various "clear bra" products available for cars.
The 2 main contenders are the 3M product and VentureShield.
(a quick google search brings up this good info
http://www.iwsti.com/forums/gd-exterior/62293-clearbra-ventureshield-3m.html
)

In any case, I chose the VentureShield Product and had it installed by professionals in the Los Angeles Area.
( www.aerotect.net to be exact) The installers are very good and do anything you ask them.

I got a full hood wrap, front bumber, front side panels, A-pillars, side mirrors, side-skirt, full rear bumper, nav screen, and door handles.
Basically, I wrapped my car in a condom. :)
I have no fear driving behind semi's on the Freeway.
I also do lots of canyon runs with these guys here: http://www.lexusf.com/forums/showthread.php?p=15692#post15692
it's super fun, but rocks are flying everywhere. I have some dings on my windshield, but the entire paint on the front my car is fully protected. :)

In summary, I highly recommend getting a clear bra installed. The bare minimum's I would do are:
Full hood (you don't want the half hood and see the lines, it's tacky IMO)
Full front bumper
side view mirrors.
Everything else for me was because I wanted the extra extra protection.

Good Luck, enjoy the F!
