Plastic hood deflector

This is advertised on EBAY. Any of you tried one of these? Experiences?

Yes, I have it installed. But itís not like in the picture. It only goes on lower part of the hood. Technically it goes on top of the bumper. Itís more like bumper protector rather than deflector.

Hereís a thread

After clicking on the link and looking at the pictures I would say no. It makes the front end look too much like a truck.

Does it come with free chrome wheel covers and a "I LUV DACA" bumper sticker?

Thanks for the input. This would be an OK choice for darker colors. Not sure I care for it on white

Naw, you don't put covers on beautiful rims, but you do use them to hide those ugly steel wheels. No, really.

I got to be honest...I was just preparing to make fun of this....and hate all over it....But, I do not think that looks bad at all, if fact, I kind of like it on the white.

I am kind of leaning towards the clear 3M coverage on the front end when my 2019 comes in. A concern is that it won't look good if the dealer does it. Better just to get it done elsewhere? Any guidance is appreciated.

You are right to be wary. The look will be 98% dependent on the skill of the installer.

The site below is how I found my installer, after calling and talking to those in my area.
