Well like we say at work, if you can dish it out, be ready to receive it also !

PGDriver, there is no bug shield as that chrome piece on the hood is supposed to do that job. I also asked the same question for our 2017 as stone chips annoy the &%#% out of me. Some members here have had a clear wrap applied to protect the nose of the vehicle's paint. Perhaps to a search in the forum or someone will jump in who has more info for you ?

If you do put a bug deflector on any car I suggest making sure you remove it ocassionally to clean, inspect and wax the area behind it and where comes in contact with the metal. I have seen that they will rub the paint and or debris will collect behind them holding moisture in causing paint issues or rust. I suggest the 3m clear bra instead that most tint places can custom fit to prevent rock chipping.

I agree that a 12 inch wide clear 3M film will give better protection and look better.
