    I am considering getting the clear bra on my new Mini. Any thoughts on which is better; full hood or just partial?

    Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

    I have the partial and I'm happy with it. Don't forget the headlights.

    We did full and love it! No worrying about keeping the edge clean where everyone can see it. And our stripes were put on over the bra. So no bumps in the bra.

    Mine is a partial. The line can be visible depending on how dirty the car is, but it's not a big deal. I bought mine used so I didn't have to make that decision :)

    My opinion is what car car do you have?

    If it's a light color, then do the partial. If it's darker, then do the full.

    Just my 2 cents :cornut:

    The odds that the top of the hood will get dinged are low. Mostly it's the front (vertical) panels that get chips and dings. So the expense of getting the full is mostly if you really mind the edge of the half. I've always thought that the edge would bother me, but I got used to it within a week and have not given it another thought since.
