I agree - I would not spend money to get clear bra if I leased the car. However, because I expect to keep this car for a while, I got my full hood, fenders, and front bumper done - custom cut. Wasn't cheap, but I think it's worth it for the peace of mind and preventing those paint chips that are bound to happen if you drive on the highways a lot. If you're going to do it, go all the way - the precut ones that only cover the front 20 inches won't give you full protection. I've seen how people get chips beyond those first 20 inches. Plus, the film becomes more noticeable, especially as it ages.
