Car Bras

Surely the most ridiculous automotive invention since BL's Hydrolastic suspension.

What do they bloody do? Take a perfectly good car, fit a bra to it and instantly ruin its appearance. Drive about smugly thinking how cool you look knowing there are no stone chips to your pride and joy.

Then, after a while you realise how stupid it makes you look so you take it off. Unfortunately there are lots of tiny scratches where the edge of the bra sat, and the rest of the paint has faded very gently so it's not even the same colour anymore.

No, I've never had one but have always hated them.

Ooooooh they make me cross!!!!!

Using yesterday's technology, to create tomorrow's problems, today.

There are a few cars that have these abominations around here.

They certainly get your attention.

Car bra.

Make yourself look like a tool whilst protecting your car's paint for the next owner.

Can you get a sofa bra? It's a bit like leaving the packaging on your furniture.

The Giulietta gets more visible paint damage to the front fascia compared to a Golf but that features a black plastic grille where the Alfa has body colour.

The little ears act as spoilers to push the things down and stop them flapping about.

Another similar "product":

Scooter skirts.

What you low-grade city type uses to protect his
clean suit during inclement weather whilst
on his non-motorbike.
