    New CTS Owner, need advice

    I just purchased my first Cadillac, a 2005 CTS and need some guidance on whether the dealer offered clear bra and/or Tuff Seal for the paint/leather are worthwhile enhancements. If a clear bra is installed, is the hood sufficient or should I cover the entire front including headlight lenses. Is the polyurethane material used on the front fascia likely to chip from rocks?

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    First of all, congratulations on your purchase, and welcome to the best possible place to enhance your Cadillac ownership.

    To my knowledge, Cadillac dealers aren't offering tuff seal or clear bras "nationwide" and this is probably something you'll have to take care of on your own. I'm sure some have that capability and offer it as an aftermarket add-on, you can always ask.

    I would definitely recommend something like the 3m rock guard film, which is I think what you were referring to when you said "clear bra." I just bought a new Expedition with beautiful cashmere tri-coat paint and I'm planning on getting the 3m product. The thought of paint chips breaks my heart.

    Good luck!
