Default Clear brar on bumper?

Hi, I wanted to install those 3m clear brar on my car bumper, i just bought a 08 car so this is why i'm a bit nervous. I heard when the shop installs the clear brar on the bumper, they have to drill holes on the bumper for some reason. Is that true? Are they going to take the whole bumper apart for the film? and do you recommend installing it on the bumper or is it better to get it repainted after few years if it gets snow chips. I have a white colour car.thank you

No they don't need to drill holes. They just stick to the car. And you can remove them without any damage to the car finish. I would recommend to get installed by a professional because it is pretty tricky.And they don't have to take the bumper apart.

They don't drill holes when applying a clear bra. Depending on what kind you are getting, they can install it wet or dry. They won't take the whole bumper off to apply it, there's no need. I personally think that it's better to apply a clear bra, rather than get the car painted because 1. Overall, the clear bra will be cheaper than getting paint jobs, 2. Honda bumpers (front and back) never have the exact color as the body, so they are extremely hard to make (I know, I've dealt with it), 3. A clear bra will make your car always looking like new. I'm not sure which clear bra you're looking at but, I think this brand is the best, it has very good surface area coverage, and is extremely durable (it's made by 3m as well). Hope this helps.
