I'm debating this as well. I was thinking about going with some clear plastidip , as both to protect, and to test how well it will hold up in my area

I fiddled around with plasti-dip on my SRT4 ACR, more of a pain in the rumpus - Xpel technologies has a precise template for the Kia Koup front with a variety of thicknesses of film grade etc

Keep the car looking new

Kia Koup Film.JPG Well after living with ruined bumper finishes and stone chips all over the hood, I think I'll set aside money for installing some front protective film. I dug up this on X-pel's website.

I had this installed on my F5 before even driving off the lot. Too many rock chips from sand on the roads in the winter so this should keep things looking a lot cleaner!

My local dealer had a red SX with some protective "snake oil" coating, ($795) on the paint, (no comment) - but it's no substitute for a layer of vinyl or such covering the front bumper from stones, sand spray, road grime, bugs and rocks that come out of dump trucks.

Paint protection is a must especially if you're planning on keeping your vehicle long term!
Oh I agree and there is always some road debris, tire "kick-up", what I call "sand-blast" - small sand particles; esp desert regions like the southwest US, bugs galore, road spray etc.
So I'm considering this with purchase.
