Car Bras - Shopping Hints?

I was going to buy a Car Bra from car Bra Australia for the Pursuit. Got a severe shock when they quoted me $380 including delivery to Sydney. Last time one of these things cost me $280 so is the $380 sort of best possible pricing? Has anyone else made a better buy?

I don't understand why people use car bras. Firstly, they are f**king ugly! And second, wouldn't you want everyone to see your car?

Sure it might protect the front...but whats the use of having a nice looking car if its covered up in seedy black material?

I saw one on a Monaro and it just ruined the viewing experience all together

Some people don't want to have to paint the front of the car every 12 months because of stone chips. Pesonally i like the look of car bras, it gives it a tough look to a car.

He|mut........do you have heaps of $$$$$ for resprays????????

When your on the road all the time & yes not all of us have the ability to have a daily driver & a nice ford.......a car bra is a needed item.

I know I wish I was able to get one for my old Sprint .....they may not look pretty on but they sure as hell do their job........protect the paint


Good luck AP in finding a more economical one

The problem i have found with Car Bra's is that when dust particles or tiny bits of dirt get under it. It scratches the paint with the road vibration and in the end creates nice scratches.

Seen it happen on a few cars with Car Bra's in the end it had to be resprayed aswell.

Yeap my thoughts exactly as well as that for the front of the falcons i think the car bra spoils the look of the car. I like to show the menacing look of the quad headlight front.
Also i have heard that there annoying to put on and off not exactly an easy fit.
