So the Q50 is my first vehicle that has a significant amount of chrome on the front. As a result I'm starting to see more and more rock chips from driving.

Just curious, is this something you guys live with, or is there a way to maintain or repair the chrome to keep it looking like new?

Best thing to do is have a clear bra/stone guard wrap done to the front end. I had it done before I even picked my car up from the dealer. There are threads on that subject if you want more info, just use the search tab ;)

3M has some really good clear bra's. But if you do it, consider it something permanent, I think peeling it off after might pull off some chrome along with it. But as always, talk to the pro's and do your research

So does anyone here actually have the clear bra on their Q50? I ask because I do have it on my Q50 and I think its a really good install, barely noticeable, no bubbles, etc. However it doesn't cover the chrome. It only covers the bumper, fenders, part of hood, and side mirrors.

I guess I'm being a little OCD with the new car. Just want protect it and keep it looking new as long as possible!

I've got a clear bra on mine, you are correct - it doesn't cover the chrome areas....I suspect because these areas are much less critical and complex to repair. I drive for a living and haven't had any issues with chips or blemishes on the chrome accents or the paint (knock on wood)

I own a paint protection company and covered nearly my entire Q, all except the area between the tail lights, and the grill. The film is there to take the beating your paint would otherwise have to endure and at some point it's going to need to be replaced so the adhesive is designed not to harm the paint when removed.

I didn't cover the grill because I'm pretty sure that chrome would be come right off once the film was removed.
