Hello, I just put a colgan bra on the front of my E36 and it looks really nice! Reading through the instructions it reccomends you remove it after everytime it gets wet. How important is this? I live in MN and it's been fairly rainy lately and it's a real pain to take it on and off all the time. I suppose I could just leave it off, but then why did I buy it? Is it detrimental to the paint on my car or something big like that or is it just better for the leather on the bra? I'd really like to be able to just leave it on the car and eventually when the bra starts to fade I can just buy a new one... but I'm kinda worried about something happening to the cars finish because that's a little more expensive to repair...
Oh, and I know this is the wrong section, but on a side note, is there a difference between ASC and ASC+T?
when the bra is left on during a rain, it won't dry on the underside very well and may stay damp causing mildew. Not only will the bra be damaged but the paint may get spots as well.
Since you're in a rainy area, I suggest looking into getting a clear bra put on. If you search the forum for "clear bra" (including the quotes) you'll find several on my posts (w/pictures) on that topic.
What I'm going to try to do for awhile is get a car cover and use that at night and just hope it doesn't rain during the day. Hopefully that will work pretty well. If it becomes too much of a hassle I'll have to try plan B. And I'll figure that one out when I get to it.
when it rains at night, your car cover will be soaking wet. How are you going to take it off w/o getting wet yourself and where is it going to be stored during the day so it will dry out by the time you get home at night?
Clear bra kits are pretty cheap if you put it on yourself.
