simonize?



I'll be taking delivery of my M3 soon, and was wondering if you guys think simonize is a good idea. I'm not getting it to be lazy, but more for protection. A friend had it done on his MB, and it seems that it's more resistant to rock chips and calls of nature from our overhead friends. I believe it also limits the "swirls".

Any help is appreciated.

TIA

I always thought "simonize" is just some cheap **** people put on your cars as "wax protectant" at drive-thru car washes.

Ok,

So based on everyone's opinion, simonize is a bad idea. In terms of the clear bra, is it necessary to get the bumper part? And mirror housing part?

Thanks for the input.
