What is the general consencus wrt dealer installed clear auto bra's like 3M Scotchcal or Invinca-Shield? Is this something a DIY can easily install? Are there any concerns related to the installation of this type of product related to warranty and longevity?

Use the search function. This topic has been covered alot and you will be able to get quite a bit of info. Clearbra's are like exhaust and tires, they are a personal preference.

FYI....the dealer doesn't do the install, they sub out the work and then upcharge you.

Yup, have someone do it. The only piece you can do yourself is hood, fenders, headlights, mirrors. Hood is a little challenging but not impossible. Bumper is extremely hard and you need professional help on that.

Get someone to do it after delivery or at the dealership. Typical install aftermarket is $600, about 1/2 the cost that dealer charges you.

If possible, get a full bumper coverage. Most bumper coverages in just frontal area of cover that doesn't wrap all the way around to the wheel arch. It'll cost you more but would eliminate lines.

3M tends to be more stiff so install is more difficult as you'll need to pull the film to apply. Get a film w/ lifetime warranty and an installer who can backup his work. Look for referal on this forum by doing a search for clear bra.

It's one of the best $600 you can spend to protect your car and keep it virually new. Only downside is the line on hood / fender when you look at it up close. It's better than chips on the paint I tell you.
