I was an unhappy camper when I looked at my Roadster's front bumper and hood today and I noticed there was a huge scrape mark that went from the tip in the bumper up the hood to the first louver piece. At first I thought it was just dirt from driving in the rain but when I went to wipe it off I saw that it wasn't dirt at all but a big scrape mark from what I assume was an SUV or truck that must have backed into my car, and my hood went under their bumper. I was really happy I had the factory StarShield installed because I peeled off the two pieces that cover the bumper and hood and found that it just scraped the StarShield and left the bumper and hood underneath in perfect condition. The flexible plastic bumper and CF hood piece showed no deformation. I went by StickerCity which does Clear Bra installation down the street from my house and they are going to replace the entire front section about about $480. If I had not had StarShield on the car I'm sure it would have been much more expensive to get the bumper and CF hood piece repainted, let alone get the colors to match. So, for anyone that doesn't have StarShield on their car it's a great investment for those unavoidable moments when your gets "kissed" by a fresh SUV.
