Does anyone know if there is or will be a hood / bug deflector available for the 300C? I know they often look cheesy, but I've had them on my last few cars and they really do offer the best hood protection w/o hurting the paint.

The hard clip-on plastic type (like PU trucks).

Instead of getting bug deflector, try the Eibach spring lowering kit. This way you can drive 'underneath' the bug's flight path.

Or....get one of thos JC Whitne....err....E&G grills and just mount it three inches high.

I know, I know, but I'd rather have a clear dorky looking nose guard protecting the hood edge and top (for skimmers) from rock chips as opposed to dealing with all that touch up which always looks like crap.

Considering the huge surface area of the fascia, I would be much more concerned about that then the hood.

In all unseriousness, have you looked into the 3M coatings you can apply to the front end? I'm in Arizona, caught my first paint seeking missile rock on the ride home from the dealership when she was just a wee lil 300. I've never known this car without a rock scar, so I take pride in the starfield continually erupting under my black beauty's lower lip. My neighbor has a more expensive, yet less thrilling, vehicle that he had a 3M coating put on to stave off the rocks. Afterall, since he owns a lesser, yet more expensive!, vehicle than I, he will need to worry about things such as resale...when he decides to buy his own 300C and ditch the krautmobile.

He claims it works like a charm. I then asked him if the added weight from the 3M coating was perhaps the reason behind his performance sedan's performance numbers being so far less than those of my own cheapo Americano sedan. No comment.

A plastic backstop mounted on the front of a 300? Please don't do it.

"Bug deflectors are for old people"

HEY - I resemble that remark!!

I plan on getting the clearbra on the whole (rubber/plastic) front end. But on the hood, I'm really concerned about the "edge" of the clear bra accross the hood and the possible fading issue. Also the clearbra won't help with those rock that skim the hood and for some reason there's alot of that in my neck of the woods!

I know I'm crazy wanting to put this on the front of my baby, maybe it's the ******* in me... I think it looks cool with my gunrack in the rear window :rolleyes:

Get the 3m clear installed or something similiar if your concerned about bugs and rocks, but the deflector? This is no Camry or Accord!! When was the last time you saw a deflector on a Mercedes, Jag, or Lexus?
