No - I had the magnet bra. It was good for a bit, but I think we need to replace them every season. Essentially it should be used like disposable bra. I used it for 2 winters, and the thing started cracking and let water in. Now my front hood has a lot of water damage.

As for rocks there's nothing really you can do, especially if you have a kit. I have the ro_ja and thus even those clear bras arn't gonna help much since the lip will be exposed. If anyone has seen my car you'll see it's got craters that make Manuel Noriega look smooth. I drive 100 miles a day commuting all highway on mostly open highway @ 80 mph every day to work. Rocks do a real number on the bumper. After awhile, you just gotta say, ah f' it. Too bad we can't snap on hard bumper cover or something. LOL
