Clear Bra For Top Of Rear Bumper

I had not seen this before on this forum, but I just had an X-Pel Premium clear bra put on and the kit came with a strip for covering the top part of the rear bumper completely below the trunk opening. It is invisible and since it is goes on a flat surface it took him about 10 minutes to install. Real peace of mind considering every time I loaded something into the trunk I was concerned about scuffing or scratching the top of the bumper. Thought I would pass this neat idea along. I would post a pic but as I say it's invisible.

I have the top of my rear bumper done as well as side skirts, behind all wheels, and front of rear wheels. Gives me good piece of mind when driving on our horrible roads.

Nice touch. With as much travelling as my wife does, keeping the suitcase scratches off that part of the car is a great thing!

What does it cost to have a clear bra put on the car? I've never done it before but looking at the front of our E46M3 which looks like it has been in the middle of a skeet range, I'm strongly considering it.

Here's a pic. It's just on the part of the bumper directly underneath the trunk opening where the bumper flares. But as I say, it is entirely invisible although it does attract a little more dust than a 'bare' bumper.
