    The best one to get is from Car-Bra Australia.

    My dad had one made for his 406 coupe at the start of the year... I think it ended up being 2 or 4 hundred bucks, but i can't remember who did it.

    That sounds about right, it's been a few years since I've had one.

    If you're doing a few country km's they're worth it.

    In just under two weeks, I took three round trips to Canberra from Melbourne.
    Although the drive was smooth and left plenty of room whenever there was traffic ahead, somehow somewhere I got the following:
    - Stone chip in the front bonnet just above the lion badge
    - Yellow bug mark on the bonnet
    - One massive chip in windshield (the car is considered unroadworthy)
    - 3 minor chips in windshield
    - Annoying scratch in windshield (somehow a tiny stone got stuck under a wiper blade)

    The resulting case: One windshield that needs to be replaced, and a bonnet lip that ain't looking that good

    If it was the older 01 206 gti, I couldn't have cared any more, but gees I have only had this 180 for less than 3 months, now going through the 6000's km.

    I wish there was some multi layered protective film that can be stuck onto the windshield, just like F1 drivers have on their helmuts (Whenever it becomes dirty, they just take a layer off) Assuming it could at least minimise the impact of a stone.

    In Australia: 05 206 GTi 180 and '97 406 v6
    In Lebanon: 09 C3 Exclusive

    All in Silver

    Previously '01 206 GTi
