I am confused about the 3M clear bra. The major market for this material is the US where millions of cars are added to the inventory annually. If it is not configured to provide reasonable service and be compatible with factory paint I cant understand why 3M would make that investment.

I have had paint lift when removing clear bra from the Dragon, but that was before I learned how important that heat was to the removal process. Once I allowed the car to sit in the sun for a couple of hours and heat up the adhesive, it came off well with no issues and no paint lift.
There is new protection called X-PEL....supposed to be better than a 3M bra...they use it on Mercedes down here.
