Anyone install a clear bra after getting rock chips?

My car doesn't even have 1000 miles on it and I already received two small yet noticeable rock chips on the front portion of the hood. I'm scratching my head because there's not much surface area for an object to impact the hood,yet that area seems to be an issue already. I'm going to a body shop to see what they can do and then I'll probably install a clear bra of some sort. Any suggestions? Touch-up paint never drys well from my experience. I would provide pics, but I know many of you may say it's not even worth it.

On my 335 I had a few rock chips on my aero lip before I got the whole front end clear bra'd. The installer used touch up paint, let it dry, and then wrapped the front end. I couldn't see where the chips were afterwards.
