Why fit a car bra?

Car bras are vehicle accessories that can provide protection for a car's front end and also alter a car's appearance. Manufacturers use other terms for car bras such as front end masks and hood protectors. Black is the most common colour for a car bra, and they are made with a felt type material on the inside and a vinyl material on the outside. So, what are the main reasons for a car bra to be fitted?

Benefits

Many drivers like the altered appearance to a vehicle that a car bra creates. A front car bra can make a car look significantly different for a relatively low cost. A car bra needs to be correctly fitted in accordance with the style of vehicle. This can create a sportier and sleeker look that some drivers prefer. This being said, car bras are not for all people's tastes but they can help distinguish a car's appearance from others, when out on the road. Front bras can help protect against damage to the front end of a car. A car bra might be a good choice for vehicles that are used frequently, or that run up high mileage by making long trips. Many roads are poorly maintained and small rocks, gravel, debris and litter can all take their toll on the paintwork of a car. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to avoid a pot hole, we still manage to drive over them. A car bra can provide a barrier of protection against a road's minor hazards that can damage a vehicle, particularly the front end.

Available types

Two types of car bras are available on the market for drivers. The one piece bra will cover the whole front end of a car, and when fitted, the bonnet cannot be opened. The two piece bra allows for the bonnet to be opened and closed when it has been put in place. Car bras do not come in a "one size fits all" style and they are manufactured with specific brands of vehicle in mind. They are quick and easy to fit, and can be installed without the need for any tools.
