I have pick up my GTR and it doesn't have clear bra. The GTR is my weekend toy and I most likely will drive it carefully and not tailgating anyone. I plan to keep this car for a few years and i am not sure if clear bra a good investment for my case. If so...what part should i do the clear bra?

After a bit of research, I decided to avois the adhesive clear films. Apparently if removed after a number of years, a respray of the the protected panels will be necessary.

To cover all the right parts on a GT-R here in Oz, you are looking at about $1000

I purchased a custom made vinyl and fabric car bra for $430 (note these are not designed to remain on the car permanently though.

Just use it for any long commutes.

Unless something is wrong with the GT-R's paint, I've never heard of a clear bra taking the paint off. I've had to have the clear bra on my Gallardo re-done on the panels behind the wheels twice as I've had it for five years and they can get embedded dirt over time; it's never taken any paint off or given me cause for concern.

Keep in mind any cover that can move at all WILL get dirt under it as you drive, and once that happens, it's just going to rub that dirt back and forth as it moves around.

I had our 2006 IS350 clear bra redone after 5 years cause of a carwash chemical, it removed off the car with zero issues. Paint looked as good as new, 3M brand.

You really don't need to tailgate anyone to get dinged. I've done full front bumper, full hood, front quarters, A pillars and side mirrors...I'd recommend it on any car that is driven any period of time...BUT get an installer that has full references.
