Clear bra suggestions?

Hey guys, I was just informed by my dealer that BMW no longer offers the clear bra as an option. That being said, does anyone know of a good installer in the Greater Philadelphia area? Also, how much should I be looking at spending for a basic bumper, partial hood, partial fender combo?

Thanks

What color is your car? Depending on the color, I'd probably get the whole hood done. That's just my opinion though. After a while you might see a line going across the hood where the bra has slightly changed color. If you get the whole thing done, you'll never notice.

Also, good question I'm originally from Philly, and travel up there on vacation sometimes. Might be interested in getting this done sometime I am up there also.

Yeah I actually might do the whole hood due to the powedome and whatnot. Just have to locate a good sho paround here.

+1 defintely do the full hood. The power dome is a magnet for rocks/bugs etc.

You should be looking at around $700-800 for the coverage you asked about.
