There's someone on here that has one...it's a tan colored Riviera, but I forget who.


Timo, this black leather thing is a car bra:

Used to keep rocks and stuff from scratching up the paint on the front bumper, helps keep some resale value in the end.

Of course, there are some that only protect the front of the hood which is completely pointless:

never have seen any car having that on in europe....well i'm sure it protects good but...
it tottaly spoils the cars look. same as buyign a car from shop and using it when it still has covers on seats, all plastic/wood parts, floors and so on...it also keeps the parts of getign any damage...have seen one guy owning one MB ower 8years...and he still had stickers on the aluminium parts...i asked what the hell for dos he still have them on?....he told me that hen he will sell it...he will rip them off and show the next owner that everythign is like new.....well...ofcorce i luaghed after that for a long time...

it's like sex whit condom happy lol

Scotty...I have one. They are easy to install. I found these instructions on the web. It's not for a Riv, but its very similar....

Hey Mark..what website did u order that bra from?..My Riv is the same Pearl white color and I think that looks really nice on it. Plus it would help hide the pits along the front hood and bumper....

I would want the strapless one though.

I always assumed they were magnetic and fastened the bra to the hood, which is usually some kind of magnetic metal. Made sense to me lol.

I had one on mine, but now it's off.
This is what it looked like. It's a LeBra, but I had the tabs taken off at the top. The ones on either side. I think it looks better without them. And yes, it is really simple to put on.

i actually took the part that covers the hood and grill off. looks better cuz i have the special grill setup. but u dont have to. theres sum1 else on here that has one on a white one. doesnt look bad...just make sure its TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT. it will rub the paint. i have about 1000 little scratches where it covered on my hood. im not happy. but oh well.

i think its "cover-craft" its like the most popular. my uncle snagged it for me, not sure where. i wanna say its like 80 - 100 bucks?? the reason i have it is i have 2 big gashes in the front bumper. i dont feel like fixing it yet..so i got that to cover it..makes it look like theres no problem lol worth it

well... cant argue about taist...but i think it dos not make the car look better...it's same as the brand new cars what com from factory and have transportation plastics on...
if i would have one i would use it only on very long trips whit bad wether/bugs/snow
but in home town or so would never but it on..

Have never seen any in europe
